If I claimed stimulus bills as a credit on my tax return, does that count as a public charge and affect future H1B or green card applications?
Hello there! Presently on EB2 and of Indian nationality with Priority date in Aug 2016. Since I am a people manager and we have an office in Toronto, we were looking into getting a PR in Canada and having me work there for a year before coming back to the US on a L1A visa. Thus shortening my GC wait time. However with the recent EB3 retrogression, they are looking into possibly downgrading me to EB3 instead. Which route (L1A or EB3) would be quicker and dependable? How to convince them? Thanks!
H1B stanping question - I just got my h1b renewed, but i need to travel in december to Asia and likely the place im travelling to will not return my passport before i have to return to the US due to christmas and new years holidays. If i go to Toronto, Canada before this and try to get the stamp before asia trip can i work while im getting the stamping done? Or is that illegal? Im afraid of taking too much vacation time across both trips.

Currently I’m on H1B and a SA1b at PwC, EY is offering me SA3. At present, PwC just started my GC process and it’s been only 4-5 months in the initial Perm application. I’m not sure whether EY would start my GC process from Day1 if I join their organization. One of the recruiters from EY mentioned that they don’t start GC process unless I have 2 years left on H1B expiry. I have currently 4 more years left (1+3). Should I consider going to EY or stay in PwC? Open for thoughts to tackle this. TIA!PwC EY

Received an offer to join Facebook as a data scientist. Given the litigation (that just ended) with the PERM issues, is it worth accepting the offer? In 5th year of H1B, approved PERM and i140 with current employer. Priority date in March 2020. Can anyone share any insight/advice?
If i’m on third year of H1B but leave for school (for completely different field), can I use the existing H1B when I get a job after graduating from grad school? Or do I need to go through new h1b lottery?
Anyone with H-1B and i140 who have decided to not stay in rat's race and moved to Canada. How is your experience? Is paycut worth for immigration freedom?

What are your thoughts about the H1b visa extensions on their way out. I see that although there is plenty of local talent available these are being used to get in cheaper labour from India and China.
How many days is it taking to receive H1B receipt notice? And how many days is it taking for approval in regular processing? Any recent experiences?
Do you know of any companies that are similar to Toptal or BrainTrust? Basically where once you get in, you don't necessarily have to go through full interview rounds for each new client? I'm not referring to the big consulting firms, but more for independents.

Just read the sad news of the death of 1st AD John Nolan. (See wheresspot for thread) While I hope be didn't contract Covid on either of the 2 sets mentioned prior to his illness and death, if it comes back that he did, we need to have a long hard chat about what went wrong. Condolences to his family. Truly horrible news.
I’ve been asked by the company I’m leaving to stay on as a contractor to work on contracts during the evening until they find a replacement. I know I probably need to get limited coverage malpractice insurance but do I need to create an LLC? Anyone else have any experience doing this? Am I trying to do too much?
MBB is known for fastest progression to Partner in 6-7 years and SIGNIFICANTLY better comp compared to Big 4. That said seeing some of my Big 4 friends make it to SMs in 7 years so MBB needs to amp up the meritocracy based promotions. Curious what would be the comp for a 1st year consulting partner in Big 4?

I’m a woman in my mid 20s and constantly face situations where people outside of cyber (still within the company) that I’m dealing with (older men in particular) who always push back against my cyber/technical recommendations even with managers cc’d. I studied, earned certs, and worked hard to get to where I am. Is it bc of my gender and age? In all honesty, I’ve written recommendations that male counterparts voiced in the past that had ZERO pushbacks.
