    Complicated Corporate Confusion

    I'm posting this in the hope someone else has been through something similar maybe even with the same company I work for... I work for GE Healthcare. GE Healthcare is a small part of the rather large and incredibly varied GE. I applied for and have got a job based in Sydney doing pretty much what I do now. Who wouldn't jump at the chance to do that and even better, it's a really good pay-rise. As per usual with HR Dept's, I don't think they know exactly how this cross-border stuff actually works (all will become clear). They did a contract for me and I signed it. They were saying that I would have to pay for everything and they would re-imburse me the money. Needless to say, that gets expensive FAST... Now, today, I got an email saying HR in Oz had put all of my details onto the 'tool' without telling me what the 'tool' is. So I did some research and then asked a friend who moved to Canada 18 months ago... Apparently, there is a part of GE that deals with what they call 'Global Mobility Services'. They employ a set of lawyers who's speciality is Immigration (Fragomen) and do a whole lot of the move themselves. From what my friend told me, they actually give you a purse of money to arrange things yourself (moving, flights, accomodation etc.) or you can go with their choices to do all this. The visa nomination/application process is done by them. So, what HR told me is quite likely to be complete rubbish and I will, this really made me laugh, get another interview and a contract to sign. Sometimes there are really good benefits to working for a large multi-national organisation. Has anybody else been through this process by any chance or something similar?
