Does tour of duty with in same practice affect H1B status? I am up for H1B extension. Also, I will have to apply for a new job posting under advisory does that automatically require H1B transfer?
For people living in the US - do you invest in property in India - if yes, then how do arrange for loans in India or US? Also if I am on H1B can I get a loan in India?
Anyone who is on student or H1b visa who has completely remote job and working from completely different location where is office is not located within 50 miles or metropolitian limit? Basically can we perform work from different state/city other than the office location we are based of?
My bf wants to marry me in city hall to keep me here (was planning to marry in 2021 anyway). We don’t have any joint bank accounts or own real estate together. What can I do to show bona fide marriage? Plan is to get married and submit for green card right away.
Has anybody applied for an L1 visa lately, and if so, what are rough timelines to be approved / be able to move to the US under premium processing category?
Folks I'm pretty ignorant on Green card issues and have been reading about Lawfully and Trackit and the other trackers. They all give different time lines. Have any of you found a tracker that is decently accurate?
Is the 1 year h1b extension rule applicable to the extension with approved I140 as well or is it just for the ones who doesn't have 140 approved?
Just wanted to pop in to say that my H1b extension RFE cleared a couple of days back, and I am extended to stay and work in the country for another 3 years! :) stay strong if you’re in the same situation and are looking for any positive vibes.
Any one in this forum received a cancellation mail for B1/B2 visa appointments for late Jan/Feb 2022. Not sure what to expect, but the appointment is still active on the portal after 3 days receiving the mail. The mail seemed pretty generic but not sure whether the consulate will honor the appointment.
Should I get a job offer before applying to day 1 CPT or apply for the visa first and then start looking for jobs?
Is it true that EY Immigration Team does a terrible job of putting together documentation for H1B related stuff? Off late I have seen so many threads around this, and all the people who had contd..
Can we transit through Canada (from US to India) with a valid Canadian visitor visa ? Or do we need to get a transit visa? My layover is 4 hours. Wanted to see if anyone has had a similar situation.
Anyone recently got H1b approval in premium processing from Nebraska center? How many days it took for you?
Got my green card recently. I have always wanted to become a realtor have my own side business. Assuming no issues anymore right if I get my license and do this while still being employed with kpmg?
What documents do we need for H1B stamping?
I filed my STEM OPT report late this year due to delays from the legal team and my intl advisor encouraged me to retain proofs in case I get in trouble filing for h1b or green card in the future. Is it appropriate to just screenshot the work emails + dates and send it to myself? What’s an ethical way of doing this?
Has anyone on H1b switched to the new employer on receipt, instead of on approval? My new employer just stated my process. While will be through premium process, I'd still have to wait for around 6 to 8 weeks to start if I am transferring on approval, while only 3 weeks if starting with receipt notice... I am so done with my current job so was wondering if sounds not too dangerous to move before approval?
Indexed Universal Life Insurance (IUL) - Anyone have one of these ? Never heard of this until the other day when a financial planner mentioned it. He said it’s a better vehicle than 401K. I took what he said with a grain of salt because he was trying to acquire customers, but I haven’t heard anyone talk about it here. At a quick glance it seems pretty solid. Anyone have experience ? Pros/Cons ? Something to add on including the standard 401K, Roth, HSA, etc ?
Any EY fish S1 or S2 in NYC that wouldn’t mind sharing salary? Want to make sure I ask a competitive range. thanks!
Have a job offer on the table. It would be a title promotion and salary increase of 15%. My current agency is very well regarded in the industry and makes amazing creative work. I like the culture and the people. The hours can be longer but is expected. I do think there’s opportunity for me to get promoted here, but unclear on timing and I’m already feeling antsy. The new company seems great, but is smaller and less “well-known.” Would you take the new job or stay at the current one? TY!
I need liquidity for an upcoming down payment for a house. I’m looking to rollover 401k from a previous employer to a self directed IRA as one of the options. Anyone has insight into pros and cons of such a rollover and if there are other options I can use to generate liquidity out of my previous employers 401k?

What would be FDD S1 salary at Deloitte NY if internally transferred from audit? Would it cut 100k?
FYI - you should still get 401k match from your old company if you leave in first few months of new year. Heard differently on this app, but left B4 in Jan and still got employer match in Feb for 2019
I’ve been having a hard time during the pandemic WFH. I’ve been diagnosed with major depression & anxiety. I don’t interact much with others for work and have been able to keep this to myself. We have yr end reviews coming up. I know it will be a bad one for me. I’ve invested in 2x/week therapy (at a financial loss) to improve my health. I’m feeling better. Is there anything that a staff could do/say at reviews that would cause you to give them a 2nd chance? I love it here and want to improve.
Looks like status report from the White House would have only two columns: Name and Status (Fired/Quit)
Who did the amex spots with the violinist and the people all shot from behind? That's not Ogilvy, is it?
I know I want a job change but not sure to what. I actually enjoy strategy and consulting and want to make good money. I can learn and get interested in just about anything and I like diversity in my work. That’s all I’ve got so far. What else do you all consider in a job move?
Hey all - need some important advice. I feel like I under-bargained base/starting salary at Slalom. Got 79K base with up to 8% bonus in a low-to-medium cost of living area as an AC. I'm 1 year out of college (top 40 uni) with ~1 year of NON-consulting experience (mostly programming/software dev. experience at some small companies). How should I expect to increase the salary up to six-figures for the next 2-3 years?
Are there top consulting firms that take on experienced consultants w/o an MBA? I refuse to get an MBA and not sure if that precludes me from joining a top consulting firm. Thoughts?
How much do you tip your building for XMas/holiday bonus? The doorman/staff have been awesome so want to make sure I’m tipping a good amount after a tough year.
Not many more disappointing moments on travel day than being 1/49 on the FC upgrade list, only for the three seats available yesterday to disappear from availability.
Found out my sperm morphology is at 0% (high count, good motility though) and RE recommends we do IVF. Aetna will cover 80% after a $5k deductible. Waiting to hear costs from our RE. Any estimates for what we’ll be looking at after insurance?
Holiday presents for daycare teachers- giving gift cards but have absolutely no idea how much to spend. What is normal these days?
Ghosted by DoorDash after the final on-site interviews 🙄😢…. Does anyone know how long it takes them to get back after this? (I know they’re notorious for ghosting but I didn’t listen)
