What is the deal with an EY employee commenting on what's going in with DT and PWC and mention the wrong visa type for rotation and use three question marks at the end of a statement that is NONE of his business???

Employees from EY do the same

H1-b is a dual intent visa allowing the holder to not only work temporarily but to also have the employer sponsor for a greencard aka settle in us. If Deloitte doesn't like them quitting once they have H1-b or greencard perhaps they should do like other big four and keep rotations to temporary visas that don't allow the person to quit and remain working in the US? Maybe Deloitte should look into the L visa...

H1-B you can move wherever you like? No, you can't. You must be 'sponsored' by your employer. You can't just move from job to job. Only a greencard entitles you to do so (or an American passport). PWC sponsors a greencard? Great. But you still have to go through PERM which is a lengthy process - can be between 3 years plus at a min. Proving PERM for audit is pretty difficult case, although it does happen. The L visa isn't exactly 'temporary,' it has a 5 + 2 year rule extension. It's actually valid for longer than the H1-B. It's also a lot more valuable as you not have to complete PERM, it's consider the 'golden' visa. H1-B you do, which makes it more temporary. An L1-A is for seniors? No. An L1-A is a manager/executive visa. Easy to get, no. Can seniors get one? Possibly but difficult to prove they hold manager/executive experience (try going through the process!). You really should do a little fact checking before commenting...

EY1 I dislike people like you bc you are so literal, but here goes. Move anywhere you like - yes, you need sponsorship but this isn't a problem these days so I said it in basic terms, next time I'll spell it out for you. Yes the L1A is the golden ticket, but it expires in your 5 +2 math problem you have, you would still need to move to the GC stage, only very rare instances that you wouldn't have to go through PERM process here too...which brings you back to H1B. Yes PERM process takes time, but once in line and at a certain stage you are free to move around to other firms who will sponsor you fairly easily. That's your only golden ticket. You are 100% wrong on the rest of your info for L1A - you basically went to google and pulled that crap up; yes that's what it's called but not how it's interpreted. At PwC we have 100s of seniors on an L1a and for EY I know a few Supervising Staff in the US on an L1A. What the government calls the visa is not what's important it's what the worker does that weighs heavily. Don't go around telling people they are wrong when the only thing you know is what the Internet tells you; congratulations you know some search terms . ... Now quit wasting people's time. At the end of the day OP asked why people go to PwC, the answer is the same. Here you will get your GC.

like

Pwc4 the PERM process does NOT apply to L1-A EB-C1 category visa holders. That's the whole point of applying for this visa. It's the clear distinction between it and the H1-B. Brings you 'back' to H1-B? If you are a holder of a L1-A, and you applied within your 5+2 year visa expiration date, and provided you met all of the requirements of the L1-A, you wouldn't be going back to a H1-B visa because your green card would most likely be approved. Typical approval times if you file I-140 and and I-485 con-currently is 4 months depending on your SC but for TSC and LIN it's in the region of 4 months. Well within your 5+2 year rule (no math problem!). Something you could never achieve with the H1-B. You mentioned I referenced Google for my information. Actually I've been through the L1-B process, converted to L1-A via counsellor processing and then went through the greencard process. As for your comment regarding a 'supervising staff' holding an L1-A, perhaps if they fraudulently applied. But it's really hard to believe this one. They would have had to work in one of PwC's subsidiary firms outside the US for 1 year + in a manager/executive role. Now they certainly don't meet executive criteria for the L1-A, I hope you can clearly see this on. To be considered a manager they would need to 'manage' a major function of the firm which in the audit world could be considered an 'audit' but only one earning significant revenues and which involves actually managing staff/seniors. Duties I know don't fall within the job description of 'supervising staff.' And then PwC would have to be stupid enough to fund the process and get nothing in return (i.e an unskilled staff, who they could obtain locally for cheaper and without the legal implications of filing a fraudulent application to USCIS).

Sounds like a real deal

Not sure what happened in other side, but Indian rotator do hold H1 visa over here...

Am Indian rotator told me today that experienced seniors can only come over for a rotation on an L1 visa. Maybe to prevent jumping ship?

Once a person holds a H1B they can move wherever they like, what I've heard is that firms like Deloitte and EY don't usually process an H1b to a GC......guess what, PwC does. If people are coming to PwC it's bc they know we will complete their visa process and they won't have to scramble and potentially be sent back home. L1 visa has an A and B status; associates can come over on a L1b but it's hard to clear government rules... Not impossible, but hard. An L1A is for seniors, much easier to get.
