Just got my H1 transfer approval notice today. I haven’t gotten the physical copy yet but the case tracker says it’s approved.

I’m eager to put in my notice but I’m scared that something could wrong before my start date (background check not going through, offer being rescinded, etc.). I don’t really have any reason to fear but the fear is there nonetheless, am I being irrational or can I put in my notice already? It would be nice to have some time off before my new start date.

It has happened to me before. H1 got speciality occupation tough RFE and hiring company rescinded it. Before that day, I didn’t know the meaning of the term : “rescind”. Can’t really advice you as I am exactly like you

I’m sorry that happened to you. Mine didn’t go to RFE tho, it got approved today (I saw through the case tracker app, I haven’t gotten any emails or physical mail yet)

Congrats!! Talk to the recruiter/hiring manager and confirm the start date of your assignment. I don't think there is anything to fear.
Also, could you please tell how much time it took for H1B transfer and which processing center?

Thanks for the detailed timeline.

So would the time b/w you resign and start a new job be counted towards those 90 days (is that the number?) unemployment ?

Why would you do that. Get paid the maximum amount. Give verbal notice to your project and submit in the system 2-3 days before u want to leave. Keeping yourself out of any payroll will make you loose thousands of dollars - notice period dollars are the free dollars

I’m 26, worked in investment management for 3 years and saved about $81k. I don’t feel fulfilled at all. Feeling pretty depressed lately and incredibly lost and really want a change.

Does PwC payout all unused PTO when one leaves or is there a limit on the payout? Dont want to find myself in the same situation a friend was in. Shes in industry and put in her two weeks to find out they only payout up to 100 hrs unused PTO and they wouldnt let her use the remaining in her two weeks notice. She lost out on over 50 hrs!!!! Is capping unused PTO payout common? PwC

Holiday Pay: We have 8 paid holidays, total of 64 hours, where everyone receives 8 hours of holiday pay regardless of what their schedule is. For example, someone working 10 or 12 hours shifts will receive 8 hours of holiday pay. To make up for the hours that they don't receive, they use PTO. What does your company do? Do you pay based off someone's schedule or is it the same across the board for everyone regardless of what they work?
