Working as an audit staff in big 4 shared service centre. It's been 2 years. I really don't like what I do there, also it seems I won't like what I'll be doing there even after becoming senior. Thinking of leaving and joining industry once ACCA qualified. (One more paper left). But people around me discourage that growth potential and earnings in industry are way less compared to public accounting. I know that too but I still want to leave. I'd like to stick to core accounting. Thoughts pls

I’ve been on H1B October 2019, expiring in 2022. I’m kind of clueless as to what happens next.

What does that entail and how long until the green card comes out after that? And when they renew my H1B for another 3 years is that a guarantee extension and not a lottery like the first one?

Visiting my SOs family and they have planned for us to drive to another city and spend a couple of nights there and do activities however no one is communicating how much the extra stuff will cost. Mind you the trip is tomorrow and they have known we are coming for a month. Should I ask how much this is going to cost us or do I just wait until someone asks me for money? I am afraid this might be like $1000 expense for us that is just unplanned.
