A desi consulting wants to hire me and file h1 this April. What’s are the chances of h1 approval if I’m not on employer w2? Currently, I’m working for a medical institute as a programmer on non profit h1.

      I believe they do... but how will you legally work if you don't have a visa? Wait for them to apply and get it approved?

      I would avoid TEKSystems. They push a lot of expenses, like travel for interviews, onto the candidates!

      They also drink a lot during weekly beer parties and I’m not interested in interacting with frat boys.

      It’s all around not a form known for professionalism.

      They will more over lay you off if they can’t find you a project in a month.

      Makes sense. And chances are they won’t find you a project because their sales efforts are lame.

      As long as you have no alternative and have good network to identify which clients have Teksystems as their prime vendor, go for it 👍🏻

    There are only two types of Desi consultants, bad and evil.
    Do you only if you have no other alternative left to try.

    Make sure they don't alter your resume with ton of fake experience, later you will face problems. Also most of the Desi consultancies remove masters from your profile and show fake 2 years of experience instead. They do that so that they can get more money for your fake experience. Also there are no good desi consultancies

    Really depends on your education, wage level... your question is too vague

      Level 2 is probably risky with a consulting firm

    OP situation is he/she is about to get taken advantage of. It’s so sad to see the way the Desi firms treat people.

    Keeping gender gap and pay gap Alice and well they are ....

    Desi consultant People Tech got fined for underpaying it’s H-1B employees. It’s a contractor for US governments (state federal etc).

    You can expect the same treatment if you take this job.
