Hi all

Will any one please tell me about the working environments in US.How US companies will look like!(I mean Infrastructure)

How the working environment will be?

For a H1B worker what are the facilities will they provide?

Especially what is the status of a H1B System administrator in a US Concern.

Did they provide a system admin with facilities like phone,laptops etc !!!

Looking forward for your inputs !!

Once a H1B holder enters an organization, he should get the same facilities that are enjoyed by citiens in respect of all that you mentioned.

I think what you called facilities phone ,laptop are not qualified to call as facilities ,these are essentials .You are duplicating your questions in other thread you were asking same .

Over-generalizations like these are not helpful. Some companies will treat H!B workers the same as everyone else, some will treat them differently; it really depends on the company.

Hi NewJercy Jhosi Asking Salary is not good Working culture, I heard that Most of H1B workers are getting just $30k to 50 k
Is and paying 30% Tax Is this cheap or not.

Maybe you heard this, but it's incorrect. H1B workers need to be paid prevailing wages, which -since we're talking about software development here- is way higher than that just about anywhere in the US. The amount of tax you're paying (I assume you're talking about income tax) is specified in the tax code, and you can get a first approximation here. Up to $74K you'd be in the 25% tax bracket.
