After 11 months of waiting, My h1b got denied, is it even worth trying again or should I just start looking to transfer to other locations to avoid the stress?

I suggest that have lawyers to reapply. No harm in it. But don’t wait for that. Start talking with your partner to see what other member firms can take you. And move there. You can work there for a year or so. If your h1 gets picked up by the time, then you can make a call whether to continue with the other member firm or to come back to US again. You may see this whole thing as a chaos, hard deal to go through but the bright side is, in an year you can get to build network in two diff markets very well..

Is this an extension? Could u give us more details on how long you have been on your h1, your job profile etc?

sorry to hear OP. USCIS has gone strict on specialty occupation part. You can retry but also parallels would try other locations. Sucks.

My 1st one got denied too

Did you reapply? And was it approved ?
