Hello H1B community - I apologize if someone has asked this question already, I tried looking but didn’t find much on the topic. What should I do if my status is expiring in the next month? My OPT is expiring in June and I was approved for H1B but via consular notification, not change of status. I was supposed to go to India in April for stamping but obviously couldn’t given the circumstances. Is anyone in the same boat / have any advice?

For those on Conditional Green Card: My lawyers have filed for the removal of conditions (I-751) about 3 weeks ago but I haven’t received the application receipt yet which automatically extends my green card’s validity for 18 months. My current green card expires in 2 weeks. If I don’t receive the receipt by then, do I need to be worried or as long as the I-751 was filed before my card expires I’m okay?

Need advice: I recently graduated from an MBA program and will start with EY Parthenon soon. I have 42 months left on my H1B and I’m nervous about EY starting my GC process since they have paused PERM (they said they will start GC after a year but if they miss this window, I’ll be screwed). Should I be looking to change jobs soon (within the next six months) or stick it out with EY? TIA!

New AWMA... curious to know what a reasonable salary expectation is and what the growth looks like for an associate within a growing ensemble. For context, background is more analytical, taking CAIA level 2 in a couple weeks, then plan on pursuing CFA.
Why is maternity leave, policy and other women's issues not important as compared to Juneteenth, coed bathrooms, and all the other issues in the media today? Women are half the population and at an average of 2.1 kids per woman, these are major issues. Are we not vocal enough? Organized enough? Not a serious voting demographic? Too grateful things are better in this generation? What is it? Why does 50% of the population matter less compared to these smaller marginal groups?

Hello MBB squids, I need your valuable advice. I am on course to getting an offer from Mck for the role of Data Analyst. Salary negotiations are pending. I also have a pretty neat offer from a tech product company for a role of consultant. If the Mckinsey compensation is almost similar to the product company, should I go for mckinsey ? I am in two minds because it's an Analyst role with no customer facing. Will that still add value to my career ? Also please advice on career path for Analyst

How do y’all like AAS/FAAS and what are the hours like? I left audit this year for a senior accounting role in industry after a long year and really brutal busy season but I miss the learning/growth at the Big 4. I’m honestly already bored with this industry role just pushing out monthly reporting but the hours and pay are pretty good. I just don’t want to go back to Big 4 only to hate it again.
