      My major isnโ€™t CS but seems like it doesnโ€™t matter seeing other people getting the same RFE with CS degree too. My lawyer asked me to list relevant courses and their use in the future role so once done they will reply back.

      @finally you also didnโ€™t calculate the RSU price increase, Facebook was really low around Oct, Nov so joining around that time would have been profitable.
      I just get frustrated seeing how much I lost just in stocks while waiting all these months, itโ€™s 100k in my case.

    • I understand the frustration. This whole thing is really bad. They want good talent but create hidden road blocks at every step. Neither useful for them nor us.

      Agreed with you, I am not sure if I can really see my future in this country with all these issues, I mean just a job change is taking months and obv there is no hope for PR for most of us.
      This feels like being in a modern slavery situation.

  • These timelines are really depressing. Did you guys join on receipt or waiting it out?

    I'm planning to join on receipt, but worried about the timeline going beyond 6 months

      I didnโ€™t want to take the risk and hence have been waiting since October, itโ€™s becoming frustrating day by day.

    • Sorry man. Yeah it's definitely frustrating to not move when you have a good offer. I wish they charge double the money and open up premium processing.

      No idea why they are leaving so much money on the table. Companies can pay tens of thousands for a faster processing

      OP
      Also it's difficult to focus back on current job because you leetcoded really hard to get a new one
