Does anyone know if Deloitte is still filling green card applications for audit? I looked up on Dnet and seems like it’s paused for advisory, but just wanted to confirm. Also, how can I start this conversation with a partner to obtain sponsorship approval? I don’t think any of the partners I worked with is familiar with the process, so I’m lost with how to initiate this convo. Lastly, I know this varies case by case, but how long does it typically take from initiating the app to rec the card? TY

Not a immigration question but figured, folks who are in the same boat might be able to answer. The COVID vaccine will be free regardless of whether one has health insurance or not. Is this true for parents of legal immigrants visiting from outside the USA? Mom (sr citizen) is planning a visit and wondering if she is even eligible to get the vaccine? If so, what kind of documentation would be needed? PS: Travel insurance won't cover the vaccine and I'm willing to pay out of pocket if need be.

I've been a mid-level AD for just over 3 years now. I'm not pushing to be promoted yet because I know I still have things to learn, but I'm also right on that cusp so I am definitely thinking about it. I'm interviewing at shops, and I want to ask about goals for a mid who wants to become a senior, but I'm worried about coming across title hungry if I do. CDs/ECDs, would it turn you off if someone in my position were to ask a question like this?

Just received an offer letter from a tech company based in CA. Only a “background investigation and reference checks” are listed as the contingent portion of the offer, nothing about testing. Does anyone know if they are required to explicitly say whether or not they drug test in an offer letter? Genuinely curious especially with Covid right now and the last place I want to be at is a clinic.

Serious q: I'm choosing between a two BI/Ops type roles, one in a FAANG in Dublin, one in a less-known corporate in London (where I'm currently based). FAANG pays 70% more and is a more interesting / more senior role, but I'd prefer staying in London where all my friends are / where it's warmer and sunnier. I'm pretty sure I'm gonna take the FAANG role, but has anyone else struggled with this type of career vs. personal life trade-off, and how did you reason about it?
