Is it okay to go to India and get H1b stamping done when I don’t have a client (on the bench)?

Is this feasible? I want to make around $240k in fed contracting.

Don't want to:
- Be a senior exec at a big firm
- Do a lot of biz dev (don't mind white papers or presenting)
- Get higher than secret clearance
- Do cyber or software engineering (don't mind managing tech talent)

Do want to:
- Have sole ownership of a single project (complex, operational work with 50+/- direct reports is fine)
- Work internationally and/or across multiple countries
- Control the project/info flow to client

I work in a psychiatric office and was wondering what protocols you have in place for security. My boss does not want cameras so the front desk can see who is coming in the office. We have even asked for a mirror to see the front door but she won't even allow that. The only thing we have for safety is thin glass windows and a emergency button all the way at the 3rd desk. By the way there is a wall separating the first desk to the second and third one. I was just wondering what you have in play?

Thoughts on “special” salary grades. I just found out the VP I was offered is not a grade 12 like most comparable roles (verified). Also not an 11, but an 11A. Slightly higher than an 11, a good bit lower than a 12. All due to the fact that it’s a leap from my current position. Why should that matter…..shouldn’t it pay what it should pay if I am selected, rather that curving down towards my current rate?

Also, who do they use for 401k plans? Currently with ADP.
