Making the jump to VC or PE front office is going to be very tough obviously - as a second year senior, you’d likely have to step back to an analysts (maybe senior analyst) level. If you could score associate somewhere, that’d be huge. Depending on your city and the role, a front office analyst position will likely be comparable all in pay, hopefully higher, than senior b4 (for ex $80-90k + 20% bonus)

The pros of the new one is TC more than 18k with sign-on of 15k (not sure clauses for this) and better wrk-life bal). My question is, how long into H1B is it advisable to have an I140 applied for. Would 3-4 years into my H1B be too late?
