Indian on H1B visa here. Given the current political climate, should I think twice before booking travel to Cuba? Or will it raise red flags with the immigration office?

No. The climate will affect all of you, irrespective of where you decided to spend your holiday.

No red flags

Don't think it matters. You already have the coveted H1B..

If you have your visa stamped and not going through any visa extension, I don't think it matters.

The DHS has the right to reject you or do searches on your devices if you decide to exit and enter. So with that in mind - decide whether you want to take the risk.

I got promoted to senior and my raise took me to $69.5k. Am I underpaid? Chattanooga, TN area.

Seems a little insane to me that I’m only getting $4.5k more despite having 2 more years of experience.

Other ideas are expensive takeout (we won't dine indoors yet, so Alinea takeout), and a rain check for a bigger celebration next year. Any other ideas? (No kids, btw)

Second interview scheduled for this week. I currently have a comp of 120, told them I'd be looking at 160 which was not an issue..

With that said can anybody shed some insight on what the move to TCS would be as Industry Advisor from the consultant with Accenture? Is that a level between M and SM at Accenture?
