What’s your take on the impact immigration laws have had on so many of our people? Seems like many of the good ones are looking at exit opportunities due to the uncertainty of the whole situation.

Are you serious? With all due respect, we’ve worked our butts off to be where we are. For example, I came here for my undergrad, ensured I did a major that would end up in a job (I could only apply for 7 companies that would sponsor). Immigrants work and ensure they provide the value to this country. Please note, most people (citizens) are descendants of former immigrants. America is land of opportunity and we need the immigrants. This is extremely disappointing coming from a Partner. Support your employees by not saying “we pushed hard on globalization”.

PwC1, I don’t think you understood his answer at all. Not to mention the fact that PwC has nothing to do with Federal Immigration Laws. Your anger is misplaced.

This partner’s answer made me understand why the many visa workers feel under valued and discriminated at Pwc. 5 years at Pwc, I always get staffed with the worst directors, my RP was never a partner and always a MD. Maybe there’s not salary difference, but there’s definitely differences in terms of treatment. And it’s baffling to me that people can’t understand that they were all immigrants (or descendants of immigrants) at one point.

Citizenship is never a factor during my teams deployment discussions. We are being hurt by the work restrictions and losing great people.

Many countries are turning nationalistic. We pushed into globalization too much, I guess. This agenda helps politicians win elections as it unites people on common ground. I know the struggle to be on a visa. It’s a global world, you can work for PwC from anywhere.

I’m really worried about the GCA round since this loop is different and I don’t have experience in UX. Does anyone have any resources that would be useful for me to leverage for this round?
