Why does PwC Law take almost 2 years as compared to other companies such as Apple, Google, Amazon etc. take only 1-1.5 years for the whole I140 approval process. Does all Big 4 make you wait for long to get your I140?

All big 4s take rlly loong time..started in Jan 2020 and still in recruiting stage prior to PERM😭

Can confirm from EY that we take more than usual time from scratch to i140. Pathetically slow

Completely agree w EY1. It takes forever (2 years average) for EY to process this, am going through this process along w a number a other friends here at EY

Big four don’t do batch pwd, the big tech firms do. Big four also makes you wait 75-90 for recruitment results - the firm themselves wait to tell lawyers the recruitment results. Those two factors above already prolong the process a couple of months.

Not always. Mine was started in 2 months. You need to put your foot down at the time of interviews.

I think its because they took that work inhouse (at least pwc did). My gc was filed way back when the external law firms were engaged by pwc and I got it within 5 months. However in the recent years from the time that Pwc has started working on it inhouse the process has started taking a really long time.

If you’re planning to leave one big 4 for another and also switch from one service line to another, is it worth asking your current company to make the internal transfer happen instead? It’s something I just recently started looking into and I didn’t mention a word of it on my annual review just recently. It would 100% come out of left field and I almost feel like they would at a minimum want me to do another busy season in audit before making it happen. Almost feel like a clean break is easier.
