Spent a year in banking at an EB but had to go back to school because of H1B visa issues. About to start as a BA at McK in the fall. Any thoughts on my ability to recruit for summer 2022 PE Assoc roles? Or do I have to spend minimum 2 years in consulting before making the switch?
If you get laid off as green card holder, do you have to go back to your home country? Can I take contract jobs while searching for full time?
My H1B extension is currently in progress and have received an RFE. I am planning to travel outside the country next week and I can’t return till I have my visa stamped. But will leaving...cont....
Recently hired SA here, got my H1-B this year. When does PwC typically file for a Green Card? Also, is there any way the process can be expedited (e.g.: a reason such as wife needs EAD) ? Thanks
Keep getting visa issues (canadian looking in big tech in the US) and had offer rescinded after employer realizing I need H1B. Any advice?
Life of non-immigrants depend on the Visa they hold and it’s so sad these companies don’t have a team where we can speak to someone immediately in case of a visa emergency situation . In EY you need to submit a form and wait for days together to get a reply from a human. Mean time you would have gone through 5 anxiety attacks.
Has anyone tried Automatic Visa Revalidation reentering US from Canada on H1B after the EO? TiA
Has anyone on H1B here been laid off and found a job within the 60 day graces period? If so, what was your strategy?
After receiving Green Card (employer sponsored), is there a minimum period that one needs to work with the sponsoring employer before switching? Asking from a legal/USICS’s point of view, not ethically.
Hi fellow USI 🐟 Did anyone recently apply for visa extension, how much time did Seyfarth took to complete the process and receiving the approval. End to end starting with initiation to approval.
Anybody US-based who relocated to Canada to renew their L1 visa? How long did you have to stay there? Thanks!
Hey fellow H1B folks, curious to see if only applicants in the Master's pool have received the receipts yet or have people heard from the regular pool too?
Anyone know how the global Visa pitch is going?
I am on H1B visa with valid stamping till September ‘21. Planning to go to India for 2 months Dec-Jan, will there be any risks?
Has anyone been denied H1B after receiving a RFE? I just received one and uscis basically wants to know how my job is related to my education.
Absolutely hate consulting and been at it for 8 years. Decided to stay for various reasons - immigration, lack of good offers etc. But so glad that I didn’t take up any of those marginally better offers that were trying to shortchange me. Finally exiting to a opportunity that I always dreamt of. Takeaway: focus on what you really want and keep trying
Need info on green card application process...have a birth certificate but it doesn’t have my full name, full father’s name. Its not practical for me to go to India and go through this process again..
QBurst is hiring across various roles with flexible location, amazing wlb and competitive pay. Happy to refer you if you’re looking to switch jobs.
Recruiter doesn't respond back for feedback on why I didn't make it after final round interview when his email mentioned that they are happy to provide feedback. After following up twice, any idea on how I could have the feedback?
How do you split “costs” with a friend traveling if you’re using your points to book the entire hotel stay, for example?
Where do y’all see the future of M7 going? In the next 20-30 years. Will there still be an M7 or will MBAs be obsolete as more and more elite companies do direct promotion? Will HSW still exist or will the value prop of a brand name be diminished a ton with the continuous rise of tech/AI, etc?
Any openings in FTI consulting? I talked to a bunch of ppl and feel like FTI has the best culture and a really good forensic practice. In NYC/DC area
Will there be a salary bubble like the housing bubble? Hearing how much people with 2-7 yrs experience are getting offered to move companies is blowing my mind. At some point this is not going to be sustainable and salaries will drop back down to reality. However, I am concerned that all of those folks with inflated salaries will get in situations they can’t support after the correction. Then what happens?
Currently contributing 18% to savings (8% 401k and 10% to savings account) and also paying $2250/month for grad school. I have a healthy savings balance and am not expecting and need to use it anytime soon. Is is ok to cut back on what I put into my savings account while I’m in school? Feeling stretched thin and have always had the impression it’s bad to not be contributing to savings regularly. Thinking if I’m paying for school it’s ok to be less aggressive with savings. Looking for input.
Question for big 4 partners/Managing directors. Is becoming partner or MD a choice or if partner role is not available an employee accepts MD role? Also,are there any post retirement benefits for MD?
Interviewing at McKinsey from a big 4 consulting firm - currently an engagement manager interviewing for an engagement manager role on the partner track - comp at big 4 is currently $165k base, what’s a reasonable amount to ask for at mck? I got an Ivy League exec mba in 2020 as well, which hasn’t yet been reflected in my big 4 comp (we mostly didn’t do raises because of covid last year). Trying to understand how much higher mck might be willing to go?
A colleague shared with me the presentation they have prepared for their promotion case. I worked with them on multiple projects during the year and I can clearly see that some of the claims on the deck are wild exaggeration or lies. For example, managed changes in scope for Project X including contract changes. Plot twist: there never was a change of scope for Project X and the contract is exactly the same. How can people be so dishonest? How far can you go before truth catching up?
I’m taking the SPHR in less than 2 months and haven’t started studying for it. How difficult is it? I’ve been in HR for 20 years and have experienced ALOT in that time, although there are always employee relations scenarios that surprise me! How much do I really need to study for this? I just can’t seem to motivate myself to do it, I’m so mentally burnt out at the end of the day from a high stress HR job, the last thing I feel like doing is studying HR!
COVID life has got me in some major frump. What cute clothes are you guys wearing? Looking to update a bit for spring. Still anticipating to be mostly at home though through summer if not longer.
Tried to help an older lady take her luggage down the stairs at Union Station (Chicago). She panicked and held onto her luggage very tight. On hindsight, (cont)
My company gave me a retention bonus, and now I can pay off the debt I incurred from an abusive relationship. After 3 years, I no longer have to think of him on a monthly occasion and could cry happy tears! Happy Thursday and happy weekend 🙏 😌🙌
What's wlb like at Accenture? I've been at boutiques for the past few years, and I'm used to M-F 9-5 with heavy pushes on the front and back of projects. I'm chasing a Functional Tech Lead role in the north east Salesforce practice.
Can somebody refer me at MBB, Accenture, EY and PwC? Victim of Deloitte layoff. Would appreciate any and all the help I can get!
In a world of remote consulting work…. How long can the US maintain its high premium over European and, esp. developing market consulting? Both price tag to clients and significantly higher salaries for the people. I imagine may move faster at Big 4, etc. than MBB, but within MBB the huge cost and salary differentials feel… increasingly hard to maintain (even though I think the differential has actually gotten bigger, not smaller in the last two years). Thoughts?
