What is PwC’s green card policy. I work in ITS. Getting promoted to Senior in July. Have been with PwC for almost two years now. Was hired as an experienced hire (advanced degree).will they start the process if I asked? How do I go about asking?

You can get it started, you have to push for it. Also, please note that PwC law isn't great so keep following up and reviewing everything they do. They make mistakes, take a lot of time sometimes so you have to be basically after them to get your stuff done.

Talk to HR and your RL, they can initiate the process once you have completed one year. They go case by case and if your RL pushes for it then it doesn’t matter if you have 3 years left on H1B or 4.

You need to have worked at the firm 3 years as a senior and your current visa (i.e. H1B) remaining 3.5 years for them to start the process. I would reach out to your HR. They usually check on your eligibility for you.

Are you sure? I’ve already been on H1b for almost two years. Another 3 years would put me to a total of 5 out of 6 years of total H1b time, just for them to start the process. Just sounds ridiculous/ too risky, that’s all.

PwC started my process one year after I joined the firm (as a senior, though). But yes, reach out to HR and they will be able to check requirements/ start the process for you. Keep your RL in the loop as well. Good luck!

This is ridiculous. Reach out to your partner, talent consultant. As per their own FAQ document, I believe you need to be there with the firm for over a year and is usually triggered when you have 3.5 years remaining on the visa. If PwC is not initiating for whatever reason, time to look elsewhere. I personally talked about this with my partner and talent consultant and got it started when I had around 3 years left on h1. Hope it helps.

Do you have a link to the FAQ document that I can take a look?

Graduated 2018 with STEM major/extension. 3 years working, and in 2 of those years USCIS ran 2 H1B lotteries. So 5 lotteries and I still didn’t get it. The chance of not getting it 5x in a row is ~25% chance ^ 5 = 0.097%. Insane. Also, I don’t know anyone who graduated earlier than 2018 and did not get it on the first three tries.

Has anyone moved from a H/MCOL city to a small town or rural area? Any regrets in regards to career progression, networking, or lack thereof? I'm thinking of making the move this winter in order to cut my housing expense by more than half and to put my daughter in better Catholic school. My employer doesn't care where we live so long as we can get to an airport. I grew up in a small town, so it wouldn't be a shock to me, just worried about how it may affect my career trajectory.
