Canadian working in the US on an L1 visa. Thinking about exiting...debating whether to come back to Canada or look in the US. But, I’ll need to get a visa again... are TNs still granted for managers etc? In consulting or in tech?
Hi all, my H1 visa was stuck at transferred to a different office for two month. However, it miraculously turned 180 the past two days and got approved, yes, within 2 days. I was really anxious before this so I just wanted to share it with other ppl who are still waiting for your approval. It will happen soon. Hang in there.
How’s PwC immigration team in terms of new h1 transfer? I have got an offer with PwC but recruiter said that it would 6-8 months in the current trend to get it approved?! Is that lil exaggerated?
Is United States Passport holder a good gift for someone who's been waiting for Green Card for a long time? Or this is a bad idea?

Peeps I have H1b till Sep 2021 but my passport expired in Sep 2020 and along with it my I94. I had already renewed my passport back in Feb but haven’t left the country since. I read online that my presence in the USA is unlawful and staying here unlawfully for more than 180 would bar me from entering US for 3 years. What are my options ?
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.
Hey folks. Any suggestions for an immigration lawyer in Chicago. Wish to do a consultation about the different possibilities on my visa status.

Does anyone have insight into why some consulting firms have better h1b approval than others? Post-mba consultant at D and I’m seeing friends at other firms with much better approval rates after graduation from mba but I imagine we do very similar types of work
Anyone here who started their consulting careers later in life? Always seeing posts about how young people make it to P... wondering about the other stories. I started as a C at 29 (yes, unfortunately, I fall into the bucket of exp hire hired at a lower level...), made M at 33. Doing well but also feeling like I’m already too old to aim to be a P. Hoping for some perspectives.
Attorney requires a business reason to file my h1b extension in premium. If not, they are charging 1225$ to me. Any tips for saving this money?
I have 2 years currently remaining on my H1B and don’t have I140 yet. Am planning to start applying to places, but I see a lot of posts about how companies are saying no to folks who have contd..
Qq - I recently noticed that I am missing an old (not current) i-797 approval notice. I have the scanned (soft) copy but not the original notice. Do we need older notices for any future filings (e.g. green card, AOS filing, naturalization etc.)? Wondering if I should order a copy or not needed.
Do I need to wait for my L1 blanket petition to get approved (1-3 weeks) before I book a visa appointment or is visa appointment part of the approval process? TIA!
Anyone got a stamp with old employer when you have a H1B transfer approved? I got my extension approval last year but haven't had a chance to get a stamp and looks like I can only get stamp under EO
If you go from h1b to h4, but still have time left on your original h1b visa, can you switch back to h1b easily?
I got the J&J vaccine (only one I could get back in April) and unlike the MRNA vaccines, it looks like there is very little data on how it performs against the Delta variant. Any other J&Jers out there feeling a little nervous?
how many administrative/non billable hours do you have per week? only working 6 billable hours per day right now (tech consulting)
Frustrated with work as we all are. Single mom insurance defense litigation for mid sized NYC based firm. Base salary is 136k nominal bonuses. Struggling to meet work demands (deadlines, billable hours) and then also struggling financially. Just curious if what I am making is going rate, am of counsel after taking 6 years off of practice 10+ years practicing. Thanks!
I'm looking to pivot from consulting into tech. I've gotten lots of interesting from tech companies on the ops side but am much more interested in product management. Any advice on books or courses to help make the transition? I'm struggling to land PM interviews at companies that aren't tiny startups :(
Why are they so obsessed with talking about cancel culture? Every single speaker has brought it up
I’m unable to focus on work and I keep dropping the ball on some projects. I hate to put this on my personal life but I’ve experienced three family deaths (including a parent) and a death of a good friend all within the last five months. I feel like I should have taken significant time off but I think now it’s too late with end of the year financials etc. Does anyone have any tips on how to bounce back up?
Open forum to share today’s successes, failures, chaos & support. See below: I’ll say it. I am sick of ppl ruining my day. i wish everyone was a bit more understanding when it comes to unforeseen problems & road blocks. ESPECIALLY when it comes delivery. I know we are all on edge rn- how could we not be? but I’ve had it with how rude and inhumane people are being to each other right now. I’m just trying to help. Why can’t we all be more flexible? (like their expected delivery date lmao)
Week 3 on the bench. What to do? I am working relentless BD with a manager I like and I have applied to all roles in region and done heavy networking. Anything I am missing or ways to staff smarter?
Checking in tomorrow at a SPG property - the suite night awards have not cleared yet. Is there something I can do to guarantee an upgrade?
What are peoples opinions on work from home? It seems to be an unpopular opinion but as a junior I despise it. I work 3 feet from my bed, I find the barriers of a phone/email between me and a senior to add a huge amount of stress to my life and I think it’s stunting my career development at my firm because I can’t build relationships as effectively. I’ve never at all had mental health issues before but now am really starting to feel burnt out and anxious most of the time. What do you think?

Can anyone share recent sign on bonus trends among big 4 firms for experienced senior audit hires?
Do people like those who auditioned in the attached video give others optimism for America's future? Do opportunities like this give optimism for America's future? Are the efforts of these individuals insignificant in today's society? For context, I believe this was filmed right before covid lockdowns. https://youtu.be/JYpJUhXGZq8
My manager is an idiot who does zero work, and I can't remember the last time I saw her in a suit jacket or even wearing dress shoes at client meetings
I feel terrible for seniors/elderly trying to get Covid vaccine appts online. I am splitting my time living between Florida and Illinois and signing up for the vaccine in either state is a nightmare for people who are not very computer savvy. I have been helping seniors who had problems figuring it out. If you have the time, reach out and help others. I have seen immense relief and a weight lifted when people get an appointment. Plus, helping others makes you feel good! 💪
