I am on OPT, with 2 years left. I work for Company A right now, and I am happy with them. Company B applied for my H1b this year and I was selected. They are processing the H1b, but I don’t wanna work there. Can I take the approved H1b to Company A and continue there, without ever working for Company B? Can I work for Company B once the H1b is approved and not got to Company A at all?

OW 🐠, how is the culture? Do you travel a lot? Is it common to work on strategy projects or is it more likely to be staffed on implementation?
I asked the waitress at my hotel bar what time her shift was ending so we could hang out, and she shut me down. I think she did so because I was wearing my MAGA hat. How many points should I demand?

Picking a country to live and work in: my spouse is a Mexican citizen (with US green card) who works in Mexico City, and I'm a US citizen. We want to live together, but my spouse has great career opportunities in tech in MC, and finding a job in the US has been hard. I could likely get a job in MC, but I don't speak Spanish and my income would be much lower. How should we handle the decision of who moves where? We are both looking for tech jobs in the bay area, but we haven't had much success.

Alternative travel taxable? I did alternative travel for the first time and I noticed my latest paycheck was $500 less than usual. Tax deduction also up 500 on the pay stub. Nobody told me this..
Was talking to a few friends who are B4 consultants and were mentioning there 100-200 person projects. I’m at a boutique and my average project size is 3-8. What’s been your experiences?
increasingly wary of the concept of "cultural fit". wouldn't you want a diversity of personalities? isn't it important for business to have at least one skeptic in the room?
What do you guys say to introduce yourselves on zoom? I said my name and team, then stopped for the next person to go…everyone stayed silent for a bit because they expected more, and they looked like they thought I disconnected lol 😭

Have a senior consultant offer from a Big 4 and a product manager offer from a pharmacy retailer (cvs, walgreens etc), but both are similar roles in digital PM/strategy. Which offer would be best to take to help me eventually exit to the tech industry in a similar role?
Dear Partners - Excuse if already being asked (I spent reasonable effort to re-use through 'search') I'm a 3rd year M pursuing an SM promo. I believe I'm doing well in my current role, and also believe I could do more. Could you help me with these Qs : 1. What can I do to ensure I'm an EFFECTIVE M3 2. What does a EFFICIENT SM1/SM2 look like for you? 3. At this stage I am in, what can I do to make my SM promo a REASONABLE "shoo in"? I'm working with key PPMDs on my promotion readiness. Thx!
Thoughts on switching consulting firms during this time...? Concerned about potential hiring freezes. Also anyone start a project that kicked off remotely without being on site?
What is your total comp and years of experience?
My (white) manager consistently gives me feedback that I’m “very literal” when doing assignments. She asks for something, I do what her directions say, and she tells me “oh you took that very literally. You’re very literal.” Obviously consulting is subjective and we’ve all had managers give vague directions leading to multiple iterations of work, but at what point do I push back? I’ve also noticed her say this about several black colleagues including clients and the senior mgr on the project.
I’m trying to hop between big 4 consulting roles. Presently, I’m a life science PhD and MBA hire to EY with 3+ YOE as a Senior consultant/associate. Do I have any shot at manager roles assuming I focus on life science roles? I’m concerned my lack of manager title kills any chance I have of joining another firm as a manager.
