Has anyone gone through the Green Card processing with PwC? The firm requires us to pay back the application fee (which from my understanding could be upto $10,000) if one resigns within two years...
Is the H1B approval rate down this year? Have any big companies stopped petitioning? Did Trump’s executive order make the process more expensive for employers ?
26M making $155k base and about $185k TC at a large payments firm (Visa, MC, AmEx). I’m also 1 year away from promo which will probably get me to $210-220k TC. Do you think I still need an MBA? A lot of senior leaders in my team have 1 so I’m really not sure at this point. The opportunity costs are high, but I’m well aware of the long term benefits. I’ve also already taken the GMAT and gotten a 740. I’m an Asian male and find the hurdles that we go through for admissions a turn off as well.
The trusts and estates bowl is not very active, so thought I’d post here. We are in the middle of updating our will/trust. We don’t have any close family that could take care of our kids if we died. Our closest friend lives in Brazil. We would love to have her take care of the kids - but don’t know if there is any way around immigration laws to have that happen if she were willing to move to US. My Google searches haven’t turned up an answer.
Are there any repercussions if you accept an offer and they completed the H1B transfer, and then you decline?

Friends - Is any company hiring? Considering H1B transfer? I have total only 28 months left on my visa? Doesn’t look like the firm is going to sponsor green card. I have been performing well in my department no negative reviews in 4 years yet HR denied to file GC. Apparently they are only considering Managers for GC. Is this the same situation in Big 4 Audit? Please comment.
Can your employer sponsor a green card without H1B with Partner sponsorship? Currently on OPT and exploring that option. And if so, what is the GC process and the PERM process and how long would I be committed to my current employer?
EY people - does the firm do anything to help with marriage based green card applications? I got an email to start working on my PERM stuff but if I plan to get married anyway, isn’t it faster to go that route?
Is any accounting firm sponsoring for an H1B visa in tax or audit? I joined KPMG 5 years ago and heard that they quit doing so after that.
Any one in this forum received a cancellation mail for B1/B2 visa appointments for late Jan/Feb 2022.
