Microsoft, shitty company with shitty PERM policy, for fuck sake.

Apr 21, 2019 48 Comments

This year they shut down all green card programs for an unknown time. heard it’s not the first time. No one publishes this kind of news before, so more and more innocent people become victims.

Hope nobody is lured into its trap anymore. Avoid this shitty company.

The team still keeps pushing back request and keeps delaying the process despite groups of angry employees voice up their concern in the company social media platform and despite they host town halls. Lost all faith on them. Their made fake promises before accepting the offer, afterwards they are as shit as you can imagine.

      I have the same thought too in the past. Until I find out their immigration team is so irresponsible, has no transparency. They ceased perm in the past as well now and then, people were affected by that ill policy, just nobody stood out and let the world know what Microsoft’s true policy is. I wish in the future, less people become victim, walk away from these hidden traps

    H1b is a temp working visa. GC is a bonus companies offer voluntarily.
    Not sure what’s frustration, unless it was a part of the offer.

      That’s because all other companies except Microsoft all offer this bonus

    That happens usually due to layoffs (the law mandates such behavior). But don’t worry - MSFT has Vancouver office just in case your visa expires so you can get back on track after some time

      Because you are not an immigrant or less so. Ask whoever is on the same boat, they will say the same as me. I just expressed the common message on behalf of everyone else. Microsoft immigration sucks, piece of shit.

      How did you make that assumption. I am an immigrant and did my due in line for GC. You knew where you were coming. This country has strict system of filters. This is the way it was when you came. And it became stricter.

    Wow found it hard to believe that MSFT is doing layoffs and GC Applications are on hold at the moment? First time I have heard it..

      @rektkid - I m hearing first time about EB2 NIW option. Sorry for asking you to do more work, but if you can do a blog post about the process and application journey, I m sure your efforts will be appreciated.

      Plan to read on it. Thanks for the tip

    Under Satya MSFT is continuously having small small layoffs throughout the company. Those layoffs Impact GC applications for that ORG. Since these layoffs are small in number they are not reported, and people don't know about those.

      Guess those prominent orgs are not in the lay-off list, so its employees Should not be included in this gc pause policy?

      That is not true. I worked for 6+ yrs for a small consulting company, the got kicked out. You have a false sense of entitlement for an immigration benefit that may or may not be granted to you.

    They did this back in 2009 too. Screwed a bunch of people over as that delay added decades to their wait

      So if they hadn't frozen, pri date would be 2008/9, which became current first in 2012. Add five years plus processing times you could be citizen by 2018.

      If it’s not too long for your pd to become current, I suggest you wait in your employer till start 485. After all, if you move within same job family, you can submit 485 supplement J. Vs. now you join msft and have to restart the 140 process

      Am not sure when my pd will become current. Am from India so it might take forever lol. Also I have already changed the employer .i.e. am not with the one who filed my GC. So I guess it shouldn’t matter. I will have to check with some attorney on if every employer I work with has to file it.

      I don’t want my current company to file it since I plan to get into a FAANG next year.
