33 YO. Does it make sense to close out a 401k from a previous employer to pay of credit card debt rn?
Can TPMs move into PM at Amazon? I’ve been a pseudo PM for a few years, after moving from fintech product to an org that appoints industry SMEs as PO for dev products. I work with them on strategy, user interviews, data dives, etc, but the team and stakeholders inevitably come to me for next steps and to realign. I’ve now had two trusted people at Amazon tell me I’m a great fit for TPM, not PM, but I’m drawn to the creative and strategic side of PM, I don’t want to chase people down anymore.
Hi everyone, I got a verbal offer from AmEx for $134k w/ a 12% annual bonus as a Sr Mgr. I have 4.5 YOE coming from marketing consulting. Is this good?
Hi! I am curious about getting into digital marketing at the Big 4 or another consulting firm. I am not a fresher either, I am a more experienced professional. have worked at other Fortune 500 companies within digital marketing. To complicate it, I would need a skilled worker visa sponsorship. I see lots of threads on here where it is totally possible. May anyone from Deloitte Accenture Capgemini or other firms share their experiences? Many thanks!
Need to visit Canada for a week as a tourist. I have an H1 b. I took the test on the CIC website and it says I need a temporary visitor's visa. Is this right, has anyone had a different experience?
My H1b visa was recently got an extension approval till 2021. I need to go to India for a week next month. Is it possible to re enter the US on a approved I979 or I need to get it stamped.....cont.
Best HYSA - see link for rates. Marcus, Ally, Discover, and CapOne are popular recommendations. All around 1% or will be. Note unless you have an incredible amount of cash a few tenths of a percent is not a material difference and not worth switching accounts. Consider if you already have an account (mortgage, cc, checking, etc) with the bank as it might simplify your life to have fewer logins and instant transfers. This site also has a list of current bank bonuses and credit card bonuses. https://www.doctorofcredit.com/high-interest-savings-to-get/
For those who got approved this year. Do you think it's ok to go to home country this year, stay until after 12.31.2020, and get the visa stamp, and come back to US? Want to work at home in my home country.
Fellow visa fish & especially long haul visa fish of indian origin — How do you deal with the uncertainty of being on a work visa in the US? What backup plans are you considering ? Is being in US worthwhile given the almost permanent wait for any permanence ? Seriously feeling like calling it quits — all I hear in the news is how this country is terrible and how it is going to keep getting worse. As far as I know Biden is not really going to change the H1B/Legal Immigration mess.
Hi all! Looking for suggestions and experiences (self/family/friends) related to travel to India on H1B visa. I have an important event to attend but my visa has expired and due to increase in 221g cases for Dropbox appointment, I’m having a hard time making a decision on traveling. Does anyone have any recent experience or has heard from someone who got 221g issued but were able to resolve it and safely come back to the US in time? I have heard some people lost their jobs due to this. Thanks!
I am a new mom working on H1-B visa. Due to pandemic, I am considering extending my leave as I don’t have any family or help here. After 16 weeks of paid parental leave, my employer can provide unpaid FML. Can I take an unpaid FML on H1-B. Are there any implications? My PERM process will also start in a month’s time
Am I the only one who feels applying for jobs and preparing for interviews gives me more high than actually doing the job once you get in ? I feel like I am always having to chase the next shiny object
How common are credit checks for roles in accounting or finance positions? Will high utilization on credit card balances and low credit score be a deal breaker? I’ve been irresponsible and made mistakes, but wondering if I can switch jobs now or if I’m best off waiting 1-2 years and cleaning up my credit first.
Anyone here get their L1A extension approved recently? I just filed for my extension last month and my current visa expires early next month. Looking to understand the timeline of processing.
Is it too risky to share an offer with current company to get a match being on H1B. Or cannot happen for VISA holder, just get transfer approved and quit?
Asked in a different bowl but checking here again. From people's recent experiences, What countries are accepting Third country nationals for H1b stamping? Indian passport holder but have a valid visa to Canada and schengen. Need to get my stamping soon and from what I hear, no appointments are available in India for Dropbox.

I feel like Bain is moving futher away from MBB. I find BCG very similar to the Firm but Bain feels like a different animal now. Time for KPMG to step up? I love to be proven wrong because I like MBB
If you transfer to a full time internal role (different group) within the 2 year work requirement, do you need to pay back signing bonuses? Contract says resign/terminate.
Need help decoding this email. Interviewed for Senior Consultant at EY - made it to partner and case study interviews. A week goes by and I get an automated rejection email, they’re “pursuing other candidates.” I asked for clarification and I get this. They could’ve said “you bombed the case” or “you asked for 150k and we top out at 120k” (I made this salary request clear during my first call with the recruiter, why push me through then?). Should I just move on? Looking for closure lol.
