I have been with a mid-size firm in tax and business consulting for the past four years. I really love what I do but find myself searching for opportunities with the Big 4. Have any of you made this kind of transition and, if so, how is it working out for you? I know every practice area/office has its own nuances but I’m starting to feel like I could be doing more with my career.

Hi everyone! I recently accepted a new job with a Big 4 and am also newly engaged. I have a couple of concerns… the main one being that I may not have enough time off for 2022 to cover taking off for the wedding, honeymoon, and then a couple of other weddings where I’m supposed to be a bridesmaid. Do you think there would be any wiggle room with managers allowing time off, or is it generally pretty strict? (Continued in comments)

I do have a previously approved EB2 I-140 which was downgraded to EB3 I-140 in October last year and is awaiting approval.

Did I need to get an H1B visa stamping if I’m in the US? I was on OPT and got my H1B while on it so ive been in the US since 2014, never left.

I do have one for my F1 that is obviously expired. I only have the I-747A for my H1B. Did I not get an H1B stamping when I needed to for 2+ years…?
