It seems Apple is not easy with gc sponsorship. Asked my boss but seems hopeless.
Where to go for green cards sponsorship?

In case you ask: Tc or gtfo: 230k (it’s got lower with bad stock performance)

    What reason did your manager give when you asked to apply for GC? Did you try asking skip level?

      The richest company in the world doesn’t want to spend a couple of grand for a green card?

      Google and Amazon are pretty good about this. Amazon started sponsoring from Day 1 last year. Google has done that for a while now.

      In fact, Apple is very frugal in spending. I wish they let me use my own money on that.

      Talk to skip. Explain the consequences and personal impact of them delaying this further. Microsoft is pretty generous with this kind of stuff. Corporate picks the bill - so very little for manager to worry about

      Something wrong with your team or manager. My friend got i140 within 1.5 year of joining apple as entry level engineer.

    Paychex started mine right after I got my H1B ... the key is to have the conversation with your manager and explain them the procedure and importance of filing it early

      Then you gotta give them an ultimatum. It’s high time you get your GC filed. If you can get into Apple then you can get into any company who’ll be happy to filed your GC the day you join.

      Yes that’s why I’m thinking of this, even though I don’t want to leave Apple. Work is interesting and stock refresh is good!
