Currently on my h1b visa which is expiring in 2021, but then it can be renewed/extended for another 3 years. When does company like Big 4 start the green card process?
If a couple of years are left on my h1b (max 6 years limit), and I have an approved i-140, can I leave the country for couple of years and return back when its current? Given I have a valid job offer off course. Or is my h1b invalid after a couple of years? Thank you!
Hi! I just accepted an offer and they will begin my h1b transfer. When my current company receives a notification from uscis? My offer only stars in June so I don’t want to quit yet
Thinking of buying a condo - any specific tips / things I should know as a H1B holder? Taxes, strange regulations, etc. TIA! First time buying property
I’m planning to put in my two weeks in late dec/ early Jan (waiting for a work visa to transfer to the new job). I’m trying to lay low but I’m about to roll off my current project and a manager I really liked working with has already called dibs to staff me in a very visible/ great role in Jan with a client he says is very important to him. I don’t know how to tell him not to pitch me for this without revealing that I might be leaving soon. Hate doing this but don’t know how not just ‘go with it
If you take a week's break between two h1b jobs, will it affect my ability to avail the 60 day grace period if i m laid-off from new employer (the rule i think says you can use this period only once per approved petition). Can anyone confirm ?
My 6 year h1 cal reaches Feb 2021. I am planning to quit, as EY immigration team has become totally clueless. Do I have enough time to start perm process with a new employer?

Hi ladies, looking for some life and career advice. My husband recently got laid off. He has an MBA from a top school but a somewhat weird resume and was in a shrinking industry. (Cont)
Ladies, if your husband is normally very good at gift giving, but with baby coming all of a sudden is 🙄, would you say something? Eg for my bday 2 weeks ago got me a “shopping spree” to pick out coming home outfit for baby. And he got me a “push present” that’s a Boppy for baby. These were things we were going to get anyway, and feels totally unspecial. I didn’t even want/ask for a push present, but the fact that he got a boppy & is calling it that is making me annoyed.
Current undergrad. Have internship offers for two very different roles. The first is a public sector generalist management consulting position in DC. The second is for a smaller early-stage incubation venture capital firm in NYC. I've always been somewhat of a generalist, with varying interests. I feel as though based on my decision my life could go in very different directions... Any insights? Esp if you're in public sector consulting or have made a similar dec. Gratitude.

For those of you saving for an mba what is your approach? I am currently 1 year out of school and have around 40k in high interest savings and another 40k in other savings accounts (brokerage, Roth, 401k). Should i keep a 50/50 split or invest the money and sell later? Also what is a good amount to have saved prior to matriculation assuming no scholarships at a top school?
Any ideas how I can forecast a certain time is peak season? I’m using the us public holiday calendar as a reference now.
Trying to decide between the 401k and the Roth 401k. Currently making 134k yr so in the phase out for the Roth IRA. How much should I be putting in which type of 401k account?
Just had a surreal experience. Have been interviewing in-house with a company for the last month and a half. Met with 7 people in person and had only great feedback...

I'm invited to interview for a Cloud Solution Architect position at Microsoft. What base salary, bonus, and RSU should I target for? I will bring 7 years of experience in Analytics on cloud.
Would you take the following offer: Base - ~$180K; Bonus - ~$30K; RSU - ~$15k; Total Comp - ~$225K; F500 firm, not tech, mid-west, individual contributor role with potential for senior roles in 2 years. Good WLB, but not the most interesting industry. Currently working at a T2 Strategy Consulting firm, 2.5 years out of a T10 MBA. $200K all in. 7 YoE. Happy with consulting so far and performing well, but would like better WLB. How much better are tech exit ops given SF cost of living?
Can you negotiate your salary bump when you get a promotion? Have never been in the position before but hoping one’s around the corner soon...
