Yes that's what EY said that they will help us transfer cause they want to keep us, but they are not doing much. Going through the interview process and all that can be a pain

I didn't get selected this year either and was thinking about going to Canada. Honestly I don't have a preference but it sounds like Canada has an easier transition. You said EY is helping you getting a new job right now? What have they been doing to help? Are they helpful? I will go thorough the same process soon😞

OP, most of the people I know who found places at other offices after not getting H-1B received two year contracts (similar to rotation) and their home office is working to sponsor their H-1B so they can return in future. Don't give up! Try to get an office somewhere to take you so you can stay with the firm and then try to work out a plan to come back to the US if you want

I'm guessing EY US won't sponsor you for s green card? I would imagine it would be quiet easy to transfer. Firms always need associates, so if you've got to leave the country because the US won't sponsor you, I don't see why London wouldn't take you as a transfer

You need to work 6 years on a working visa before you can apply for a green card.

A girl from my group transferred to EY London from FAAS to TAS. She said it actually wasn't that difficult and very easy to do. I believe she initiated it and reached out to their TAS group. It took awhile for her visa application to be processed but she's there now actually.

Errrr... No you don't. Who said you have to work 6 years on the work visa? They can pretty much start filing your green card anytime but I believe most firms try to wait till you are eligible to be promoted to manager (I.e. Required experience plus CPA) but they can file under EB3 if you aren't eligible to be a manager

When I was at EY a girl in our group transferred to London after not getting H1-B. She had to contact that office directly and push through HR but ultimately the firm wanted to keep her even if she could stay in the US. She's on a 2 year contract and the US firm filed for her H1-B this year (rejected again) in prep for her returning at some point.

From seeing others experiences with not getting H1-B I think the best thing is to try and find your own route. HR will say they are trying to help but I've seen then not be all that helpful :(

Yeah HR EY doesn't do much..except tell you to contact somebody. My SM is trying to reach some people in London to make it easier. We shall see

Intra-company transfer is easier if they have the need and you have the specialty they're looking for. My advice, choose your client wisely and ensure you have a niche or specific industry focus.

What level do you have to be to be able to transfer?

At least Senior level

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!

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
