Microsoft submitted the application early October to California service center, it got moved to Vermont mid January, and got RFE towards the end of the month. Msft lawyers haven't received the official reason yet (will update once they do), but I'm just posting this for people who are still considering joining on receipt: DO NOT, unless you really have to. Luckily my to-be manager has been willing to wait.
- Groupon shockerrrSame here. I got the receipt early october, moved to a different center mid jan and got an RFE around end jan. I got it for employer - employee relationship. My lawyers are currently preparing a response, seems like it will take around 2-3 weeks to prepare the response. Hopefully premium opens up by that time.
- Lawyers responded. Reason for RFE is specialty occupation. They need over a month to get everything together for a hopefully a solid response. Let's hope PP comes back by then.
- Mphasis / ProjectWaitbutY?One possible reason could be your wage level in the LCA. Is it Level II? A lot of applications being questioned for being on Level II.
