After flying coast to coast for a year, I got a mental breakdown yesterday and can't stop crying in my hotel room last night, I would like to get a new job with higher pay but visa limits my choices
Has anyone used the free Uber airport rides from the Amex promotion? Will it work if I only have a corporate Amex card?
Currently with ACN in SEA, but looking to move to Australia in a year for better WLB. Anyone who's done this through Accenture or other firms? Any recommendations on how to approach this - PR/Visa, direct applications for jobs there etc.?
Afraid of my chase account being closed. If you were to transfer UR Points and had no option otherwise, what/where would you transfer your points? Approx 200,000 UR points, not the most but don't wanna lose them haha
Curious if there’s any international students/professionals on here who has tried to go the entrepreneurial route? How did you manage immigration issues and investors’ adversity against legal risks? Would appreciate chat in the DM as well if people don’t feel comfortable talking about their legal status here. Thank you for your help!

Can anybody shed light on why I got bumped? I booked an award ticket (class YN), which I thought removed you from upgrade eligibility unless you have the Chase United card (have the no AF version).
Love the BA Amex ads! Really well executed, a great weaving of product, and of course nothing is better than mom's. https://youtu.be/Wo_PXz0-ykg
Cleared first round and my on-site is next week. It just came to my notice something about visa sponsorship in JD. It states “This role is not eligible for immigration sponsorship.” I have H1B but I would need H1b transfer and GC sponsorship. Can anyone help me out here.
Canceling CSR my NY friends?
Anyone here who went for H1B stamping recently? How was it? Did you have any problems with 221(g)? F1 to H1 here,
Do you need the original i797 for the H1B interview? My document is still in transit and I have my visa interview in a couple of days. I am thinking of taking the copy of the form, but really worried.
Thinking outside the box: need H1B renewal stamping, eligible for Dropbox in my home country. However, going there is still risky in case of a 221g and consulates closed. Can I send my passport to my home country through a friend for Dropbox stamping? Once the stamping is done, I can travel to home country (after they courier my passport back) Is this possible or am I going crazy?
Have the CSR, if I downgrade to the preferred, do I lose the UR travel redemption value (1point ~ 1.5c)? Is redemption value specific to a card? How does UR value work if you have multiple cards?
Hey folks, Has anyone transferred their H1B to another employer? How did it go, eg did you need to stop working / leave the country/ anything else? How long does it take? Anyone with a Green card in process - has it affected you in any way? Thanks!
Anyone on H1 made a stop at Canada while flying to/from India ? Is transit visa required?
Do we need to file for a new H1B amendment or LCA if I am going to be starting on a new client? Given that we are all WFH and there’s no need to be at the client site anymore ?
For MBB interns who finish their summer internships and receive return offers, can they directly transition to FT? Or do they need to wait for some period of time
I have two offers - same comp: Big4 A - I used to work there so I have some network and connections. But it’s a specialized group in niche industry (good balance of provision and compliance) Big4 B - never worked there. It’s a provision only group specialized in tax accounting but no specific industries (probably will see everything) I value my network especially in the middle of the pandemic but I don’t really want to be confined in a niche industry. Provision > compliance. Any advise? TIA!
Does DFW airport have a separate security line for priority boarding? Running late. Have priority boarding passes. Wondering if that would help navigate security faster.
Those who have chase sapphire preferred - is it worth it? Also, Amex gold or Chase sapphire preferred. Thanks!
Did you all have to formally request your SAT, ACT, GMAT scores and send them into MBB after you got an offer?
Are LIC Policies Jeevan Lakshya and Jeevan Labh good from an investment and insurance POV? 25 lakh rs policy pays 67lakh after 25y on maturity. Premium paid is 1.2 lakh for 23&16y resp. Suggestions

You know you’re moving up in the world when you have to let more and more people know about your upcoming PTO
I spend my days without showering, just eating junk food and watching puppy videos. What the bench has done to me..
Does B4 let people go the same day as their resignation only if they’re going to a direct competitor? How about MBB or a tier 2 consulting firm? Have people been let go immediately in case they go to FAANG or other industry firms?
Can I use my Amex corporate card on ubereats for personal use?And of course will not expense that.. My personal card was compromised and new one will be shipped on Monday and I need to order something .. .
It’s crazy to think that there have been more reported coronavirus deaths in the state of New York than Asia, Middle East, Africa and Oceania combined.
Due to social distancing rules, when the kids come into school in the morning, they have to immediately report to their classrooms. I get it, but I also don't have time to entertain them as I'm prepping for class. What can I do to keep them busy?
Best way to reduce taxes on severance pay? Receiving bonus and severance, tips for saving money. Open to charity etc. I’m afraid that most of this will go into taxes. I will max out my IRA.
TFW you’re on a proposal and suggest a project you worked crazy hard on as a reference, then fancy partner says “that project isn’t applicable experience here.”
Unfortunately was just laid off. I’m taking this as an opportunity to look forward to new experiences and people to work with. If anyone knows of any Producer gigs, I’m now available. I’m agency side.
