I’m an immigrant with H1B. Been wanting to get out of my firm so badly but every time I apply outside, I start getting dragged into work at my current firm.I was going through some pretty rigorous interviews (I failed them) and have been in a slump since. Meanwhile my current firm keeps dumping work on me and I can’t find the time to apply outside. Anyone been through something similar? I’m losing hope.The politics is also so toxic, they started screwing me over since my last performance review.
Recently got sober and am applying to business schools. I’m concerned it’ll be tough to make friends/networks without drinking or doing drugs. Anyone have any insight on this?
Has anyone gotten an experience letter from the firm? I am in the process of applying for Canadian PR, was wondering if there is some template or I should it come from my manager in writing?
Has anyone taken lessons at GolfTEC or a golf store (golf galaxy, pga superstore)? I typically play in the mid 80s but can’t get into the 70s. Looking for lessons to improve and get a little more consistent.
FAANG or PE Ops. I currently am in PE Ops consulting but have an offer from Amazon. Any ideas on what would provide more job security? Trying to decide if I should make a jump to FAANG
Has anyone filed for bar license reciprocity in Texas? If so, how long did it take for your application to be approved?
If one is on a long workshop call (not an optional one and spanning more than a few hours) that spans across the lunch time period, does your firm or client generally provide for lunch when it's been in-person, or reimburse for lunch when it's been in-person or working from home (the latter particularly due to COVID)?
I’m trying to figure out what my in hand paycheck would be after all the ore tax deductions (benefits, 401K, etc) when I work in NYC and live in NJ. Is there a calculator that can help with this?

For those with HOAs and community amenities, are they going to allow guests after June 15? We have a pool and gym in ours that are residents only for now but they haven’t announced opening up yet, so wondering if yours have. Ready to invite some friends over for a bbq!
Started a new gig over a month ago and was very excited to work with my new partner but they haven’t been too welcoming, projects have not been collaborative (just me doing it and emailing it to them), they don’t really reply to my messages about work (started remote) and doesn’t really reply to any creative inspiration that I send to break ice. Not sure why there’s been zero effort on their end? Kind of bummed. Anyone else been there?
Everyone should openly share their salaries/wages with anyone who wants to know. It only helps other workers and is only bad for companies. Biggest company propaganda was getting the general public to think that’s it’s inappropriate to have salary transparency.
I am almost 2 years into my H1B. They haven’t started my I140 but when I joined told me that I would be eligible in a year of which I am coming up on in this Oct. I got a new offer today but they told me that they would apply I140 after a year from when I join. The pros of the new one is TC more than 18k with sign-on of 15k (not sure clauses for this) and better wrk-life bal). My question is, how long into H1B is it advisable to have an I140 applied for. Would 3-4 years into my H1B be too late?
