Sounds weird.
I guess you just have to wait for the physical notices.
I noticed your PD is very similar to mine.

Topic: Did anyone from Infosys get PERM approved in 2013?

It is sooooo much fun to see all this going on ;-)
And well, you know, there's something called freedom of speech, I know it doesn't exist in India, but here, it does.
Go complain to the fat lady from HR about people talking crap and see if she can retaliate with a CRR4 (or 5, whichever was the lowest).

Hard to tell, but I'd assume no changes. Just because they are being fined for their past misuse of B1 visas does not mean that is going to clean up their GC process (whatever lack of recruitment efforts is causing them to be audited).

But boy, was the B1 misuse rampant in the early part of the last decade. NCR, Cisco Systems, Northwestern Mutual...to name a few clients...it was a regular practice to send people on B1 and the audacious part is that they used to bill these guys on a T&M basis (with the names of people onsite on B1 visas, clearly mentioned on the invoice).

Yes, that is true. The $35 million fine is for misrepresentation of I9, misuse of B1 and lack of proper LCA filings (specially for transfer cases).
Of the employee discrimination case, the Jay Palmer case was dismissed, the other ex-account manager from the west coast received a settlement and there is one case in courts (I believe there are 4 plaintiffs for that).
Infy was the first Indian company to list on NASDAQ, it is also the company who would be fined the highest amount for immigration violation. Nice feather to have....
I'd like to see how does Shibu Dalal react.

I don't think it's that dire yet (but entirely plausible). One of their strengths is that training infrastructure that they have created. They have done a really good job on that. Problem is, clearly people have figured out that their premium billing rates are not worth it. They can reduce the rates, but they would rather shoot themselves than reduce rates.
It would be very interesting to see what happens over the next 2 years. Trouble is, the poor Infoscions or whatever they call themselves are getting the short end of the stick.

Sinfy is obsessed about margins, that is 100% true. They have a system that sends electrical pulses to the CEO's heart if the number of people on US bench crosses a certain number (mostly likely 7 or 9 for the entire company).

Not sure about CTS but TCS are a bunch of scumbags too, anyone remembers their scheme of keeping their employee's tax returns back? Then they got sued and changed the policy. For anyone who engages in that kind of behavior, I've only one word for them...scumbag. Also, they expect employees to provide 3 months of notice to resign in the US (doesn't really make sense at all). The only good thing that they do is distribute the onsite pie among everybody, although their salaries suck big time, I'd prefer to shoot myself if I had to live on TCS salary.

I won't be surprised if some of their employees (specially with kids and all) qualify for SNAP benefits and Section 8 housing.

I wonder how CTS is going to deal with the reformed H1 policies (assuming they take affect). Their model is not so different from Sinfy....oops, I meant Infy. And what about TCS? I'm guessing they probably have the least number of LPRs and USCs.

the old man wants to switch back to the old days where most people came for relatively short periods and there was no question of processing Green Cards. Back in those days, very long term meant 2 years

Yes, those statements are true. I mean, why on earth would someone run your payroll in US while you are working out of Mexico?
If you need a work permit for Mexico, you need a FM3 visa.

really? 160 is not different from 300? you seem to be so mathematically challenged. In any case, that doesn't absolve them of what they have done. As for a life, trust me dude, I've a rocking one.

300K? I thought it was like 160K or so? Looks like you drink your bosses' kool aid a lot.
As far as wishing bad, well I don't drink that kool aid of "take care of families like you and I...." crap. If someone has engaged in illegal activities, they should be punished.

And if someone is abusing US laws, I'll speak up.

Yes, the DoJ investigation is on, won't speak about it until results are out. Even if they settle it with a fine, there will still be a public disclosure. Those investigations typically take a few years.
As far as revenues are concerned, their growth has really been dampened since March 2012 (trailing it's peers). Open up the financial reports and try to figure out the situation without the Lodestone acquisition (if you can figure things beyond socializing with your offshore peers), profit margins (their precious...if they have watched the LOTR trilogy) have decreased, PERM approvals have gone down the drain, H1B/L1s are much harder than it used to be. If things were all hunky dory, they wouldn't have pulled out the old man from retirement. These things would be beyond your team members (who are more concerned about their next project in order to continue making those payments on the newly acquired condo in India), but I'd be more than willing to have a detailed conversation.
