How can company like American Express say that we do not sponsor green card?

Amex recruiter reached out to me few weeks ago and started having career conversation. Then they told me that if you are looking for Green Card sponsorship then we can not do that? That was shocking for the company of this size.

      If it's more than half then i wonder why so many people complain about the big tech companies not have diversity outside of white men.

      Silicon Valley is not the US and the US is huge.

      I totally agree. It's unfortunate.

    Financial sector is less immigration friendly - actually tech is somewhat unique in that aspect.

    A friend worked at Goldman and they wouldnt start his green card until 5 years after joining.

    Well the company literally has 'American' in it. It's pretty self-explanatory..

    I believe the policy even with big corporations like AE change year-over-year. It depends on the market. Mostly if they have lots of qualified local candidates line-up, they will be very upfront about that. You’re right; I will be shocked if AE don’t sponsor GC at all.

    It costs companies money to put people through the GC process. Why is it bad that they can choose to NOT support this? If they are getting enough candidates locally, that is there choice.

    Yeah, why AE? I would pick Visa over it. Much better growth potential for the stocks

      That's okay for lower skilled jobs but for technical skills they should seriously think about it.

      Also, smart is smart. No matter where that person is born. It's ridiculous.

    It comes out of that teams budget. And each team is only allowed a certain number of sponsors. So you need to find the right roles that will sponsor.
