Is Accenture sponsoring H1B at M& SM levels? If so, how responsive is their legal team for H1B / GC related filings?

YMMV. I had no issues but had the support of a Managing Director and Leadership

H1b sponsoring is only for exception cases, and the process requires several approvals. They have a Global careers programs, so they may hire you from Accenture india office and deploy you in US. But again, YMMV

I am already in US. Looking to transfer from EY to Accenture.Have H1B and approved I 140

Specifically looking for Accenture Strategy.

Do you have or know an MD who would help you on the inside? That’s really all it takes (and a specialized skill set)

I was on opt from July 2020 to July 2021. I got my h1b approved in 2020 and chose to activate it via the consular processing method. I left the US in Jul 2021 and will finally visit the embassy for stamping tomorrow. If successful, does it mean that I could get another company to apply for a h1b transfer right away? Or do I have to enter the US before the h1b transfer process can start? Thanks!
