Is that true EY just laid of people that are on visa and called it “performance” related?

No not at all. Some people were let go that we’re on visas but from what I can tell it wasn’t a factor (I.e. performance and working up from lowest performers was the driver, tons of people on visas unaffected, etc).

Are you in HR? 😂😂 jokes on side, from what I heard a lot of people that got laid of happened to be on visa as well. Could be coincidence but wanted to see how people from EY felt/saw

Agree with EY1. People with visas were let go but not because they were on a visa. Plenty of people without visas also let go

Hi fellow immigrants. My partner and I are in the process of getting a visa, and we need an agent and as many contacts as possible for intent letters. Anyone that can offer some help? We're experience enough, hot agencies, hot cities, live work, real interest from NY agencies... Is just that we don't know people in the US yet. Any help would be appreciated.

Maybe off-topic, but I’ve got a question related to taxes and withholding. 2020 was the first year that both me and my wife made full salaries in our high-paying jobs (she’s a pharmacist, I’m in consulting). We don’t do anything out of the ordinary to reduce our taxes, we just put ~ 6% each towards our 401k’s. No house or kids so our other deductions are limited. Just started doing taxes and got a shock that we owe big. Any others in this situation? Do you just withhold a ton extra on W4?
