Goldman Sachs Green Card Policy

Nov 2, 2019 8 Comments

Could some one let me know the Green card policy at Goldman. I am offfered a position in Dallas. Recruiter mentioned they will initiate the process only after 2 years on H1B. When asked if he could state that in writing, he said he cant do it and it is a general policy across the company. So just wanted to verify.

      Agreed u gotta roll the dice there is no guarantee in writing. Big firms all have a process and it takes years and minimum. 2yr sounds good

    Find another company. Two years before they start is terrible...

    Depends entirely on your manager and how much they push their senior management.

    I got mine started 1 month into the job, but there are two in my team (who joined few months before I did) who got theirs started only this year. Entirely due to manager pushing the MD and then going via HR

    Edit: Official policy is that GC won't be started until you are close to end of normal H1B (i.e., they will start it when you have ~1.5 years left on your H1B)

      Thanks for the insight. When you said end of normal h1b, are you referring to normal h1b(2 years into h1b) or a h1b extension (the extra 3year h1b) ?

      The latter

      So, they'd start only if you had already completed 4/4.5 years out of 6 years...

      Again, if your manager can push, all the timelines go out the window..

    The reason why they won’t give it in writing is because it depends on your performance and team interest as well.

      If performance is good, would they file for it early?
