Joined PwC in September 2016, they started the GC process in November - December of 2016. Got perm approved and filing for I-140. H1B expiring in mid 2019

Depends if it’s EB2 then ages. If EB1 then probably within a year

Not asking the ETA for getting the Green Card but swiftness from initiation to perm filing. Looking to maintain work authorization post the 6 years H1 limit without having to transfer overseas for H1 reset.

I joined EY last year and they were very efficient with my GC application. I had a very bad experience with KPMG before. I think Deloitte and EY are good with filing green cards.

Folks usually how much time it takes at your firm to complete the paper work and filing formalities ?

Here’s my timeline: May 2017 - Joined EY. Sep 2017 - Started the GC process. Oct 2017 - Finalized job description Nov 2017 - Filed for Prevailing Wage Determination Mar 2018 - Received favourable PWD response Apr 2018 - Draft PERM May 2018 - Filed PERM

EY2 - what is/was your H1 max date?

Thanks, if you dont mind sharing, what practice are you part of and what is your level?

Risk practice. Also a colleague of mine who joined in August 2017 had his PERM filed by June 2018. What’s your max out date and practice?

Sep 2019. Advisory - DnA.

So does that mean PwC and EY usually apply only EB2... no EB1?

Usually PwC and EY are Fast GC application companies. Deloitte and KPMG are not favorable and GC application is tied to top performance and at least 1/1.5 years of service.

EB1 is for managers at subsidiary firm and generally for L1A Never seen a h1b on EB1

@PwC2 - I think Deloitte is good at processing GC too. Their policy for experienced hires is to start after 6 months of joining. KPMG is generally very bad with immigration matters. They don’t even file H1B in Premium processing.

@pwc3. You may not have seen it but fairly common.
