I’ve been through 5+ weeks of interviews with a company that will IPO next year and they did a bait and switch on me with the offer: it was advertised as “Head of” and then during the offer-walk-through-meeting today they said “oh btw we changed the title to ‘Senior Manager’ for this role”. They offered me a salary I made 4 years ago as a manager. They offered stock options with an exercise price TBD 1 year from now…which is when they’re hitting IPO. Is that normal for stock options?

A criticism of firm attorneys I see re: transition in house is that they don't think like a business person.

So I just got back from the consulate and my visa was approved. My NIE eligibility, on the other hand, got severely scrutinized but in the end I received a small paper (just a few lines on a blank piece of paper) saying my NIE is approved. The consular officer did however say that it is subject to further investigation and may ultimately be denied. This got me quite confused. Anyone else that has had the same? Can I still be denied at the border?
