Our current interpretation for H1B is 4 days/wk max on a single client site (multiple sites ok), 1 day min in home office/wk, and 6 months max on same project (longer with same client ok as long as workstream changes)

H1B has no restrictions in terms off being on client’s site but does require to file a location amendment, which takes 1-2 weeks to process, prior to the start of the project. F1 STEM has a restriction - new guidance. You cannot work from 3rd party site or home, so you basically have to work from your firm’s office and you also have to be supervised.

P1 - that sounds a firm specific interpretation of the USCIS memo

When ppl say anytime you spend abroad while on H1B can be recaptured - does that include the time you resign from your job and leave the country? Or do you have to stay employed

I had a dream that one of my good friend/ colleagues received his GC. He was in queue since 2012. Suddenly I felt alone as my PD was in 2017. Phew, it was a dream - So I woke up into my waking immigration nightmare.

I’m leading an initiative to promote Diversity + Inclusion. I have one practice telling me one thing, another practice lead telling me they want another thing (and to keep it within our group), and the organization lead telling me they just want to be involved! And then a set of HR regulations I must follow that none of them are pleased with. I feel like I have pressure from all angles and am just trying to do something good 😞😞😞

I'm really good at my job, a high performer and have visibility with partners. However, I hate it. I wake up in the mornings feeling angry and resentful. I'm not able to exercise creativity as I'd like to, and feel I'd be happier in a completely different field. I'm scared to leave behind the reputation I've built. Big 4, it's safe/comfortable/addictive and Im addicted to being on cruise control. Anyone else been through the same?

I’ve seen a couple posts lately with comments saying that people should not use a Roth 401k. Does the logic below capture the spirit of that concept? 1. Use trad. 401k to reduce taxable income now. Convert to trad. IRA once retired, then convert gradually to Roth IRA (ladder, SEPP, etc.) at lowest marginal tax rate 2. Use Roth IRA (and/or backdoor Roth) to take advantage of tax free growth and ability to withdraw principal early without penalty

Feeling blah. Got an offer and turned it down (I wouldn’t have taken), and told this other company that I got an offer, which resulted in the recruiter speeding up my 2nd interview. After the interview, they said that they’d need another interview and to speak to my refs before going forward, and that if I have an offer, they don’t want me to hold me back from taking it. Mind’s kind of in a jumble after this long process. Thoughts from my fellow fish?
