M1 - do you even know what you’re talking about? 🤦🏽‍♀️ I’m sure OP would’ve loved having a green card, but they don’t just hand that out. OP - I can totally empathize. It sucks. I hope you’re able to reapply and return. All the best

M1 be like, “OP should have applied to be born in America"

If your own firm operates in other countries where you’re entitled to work/can get a visa, then try informal channels with seniors who know you. Sometimes HR just says no but there are options. Lots of geographies very busy across all firms now

I’m sorry, OP. Over the past year we’ve had many transfers to Dubai from our offices in the U.S. I can ask around about recruiting cycles if you’re interested.

M1 post got deleted. What did I miss? OP - I am on work visa and I know how it feels

It said that OP should have applied for a green card if he/she wanted to stay in America, which is fairly oblivious of how the immigration system works in the US. Hence the ridicule

OP I'm truly sorry to hear that. I was in the same boat until last week but my Visa got approved. Totally get how you feel but feel bad that we can't help you except offer our sympathies.

Is it just me, or is the big 4 sales culture low energy? I get the RFP process is painful, having done it in other industries myself, but the way I've seen most people sell in these firms seems mediocre for the amount of support that gets thrown at these opportunities. Maybe it's the ex-finance consultant in me, but the approaches I've seen in my 5 year tenure so far have me thinking this isn't catering to my strengths and won't be the best move to stick it out to SM/PPMD.
