I got told this wasn’t allowed - suggest speaking to your immigration team. Travel ban is still in place anyway and UK just announced mandatory 14 day quarantine.

My H1B Case Status was updated to, “Name was updated.” The message read, “On May 7, 2020, we updated your name for your Form I-129, Petition for a Nonimmigrant Worker, Receipt Number WAC12xxxxxxxxx.”I never requested a name change, and I don’t think the lawyers did either because I checked my files application and my name was correct. Does this means my petition probably will be denied?

Are there any benefits of marriage other than fulfilling a social norm and tax benefits. I’m trying to make sure I make an educated decision and look at all the pros and cons before signing a contract with someone which basically gives them 50% equity for everything in my life.

This may be a hot take - but as a younger person, working with parents of small kids (especially new parents) is so frustrating. I frequently find myself responsible for picking up the slack due to their family commitments - it’s also somehow completely socially acceptable for kids to barge into zoom meetings screaming. I wouldn’t find it nearly as bothersome if I felt like leadership and parent colleagues took my issues and non work commitments seriously in addition to that of parents and kids


Have a finial interview with ACN coming up and I m really excited about the company but it’s the only consulting firm I ve really looked at in the Philadelphia area. I graduated college a year ago. My background and experience is in Finance but I am look for more tech related roles. A friend of mine said they are hiring but salaries my not be as high at they use to. Now I feel like I should be looking at other options. Does anyone have suggestions for companies similar to ACN in the area?

Do you find that you need to coach your manager a lot? We had a management change and it’s been a huge drop in morale on our team since the new manager lacks basic Microsoft office skills, does not attribute credit, cross tasks the team without communication, and is a micromanager all at once. Is this something, as a SC, that I need to critique her about?
