    Most banks stopped sponsoring h1b when they got tax cut from trump and GOP. Some do on need/case basis.

      Policy applies to external new grads. Returning inters are an exception, that explains banana344.

      What do you mean by that?

      I mean right now US grads have a low chance of hitting an h1. Train someone on OPT then not get an H1 for majority of them leads to unnecssary churn. If chances of grads getting h1b improve, perhaps its more attractive.

      Ok. I guess to much uncertainty for the roi. Some companies like grubhub dont even entertain xfers.

    Atlassian said they wouldn’t do it for me even though I have 5 years experience.And a bunch of small Bay Area companies.
    I would say overall decrease of 20%
