Still waiting for offer details from Microsoft OneDrive team.
Is there any room for negotiation at Microsoft?

I am an international student (Got my Masters from a school in Ithaca) and I didn’t get H1B yet. I still have 2 more tries. I hear Microsoft can send me to Canada. What will Zillow do?
Considering my situation, what do you suggest? Or do you suggest take one and interview at other places? If so, which one?
Please comment your answers with reason.
PS: Puns are welcome. 🍿
Zillow AI is basically the Wild West. Things move slow because every team is basically on their own with minimal infrastructure support. It’s great for your career growth, as you’ll learn more than anywhere else.
Zillow will start your green card process pretty quickly, but obviously doesn’t help you if you’re from a country with a backlog. You should ask your recruiter about what will happen if you’re H1B fails. It’s a fair question.
