Currently on L1-A visa and about to start application for i140 and i485 concurrently (in EB1-C category). Keen to change jobs - when is the earliest I will be in a position to switch employers? Once I have the EAD? Or only when I receive the GC?

When you have the EAD and 180 days have elapsed since I-485 filing. You may also need your new employer to file a supplement J, but that may not be required for EB1C

I think you need an approved i140, and 6 months since your i485 has been pending, alongwith EAD and AP so you can travel freely

I140 timelines are 10-14 months I think. Depends on service center mostly.

Hi all - I gave my range for Amazon non-tech Program Manager L6 role in Seattle (my YOE is 6+) as too high, and the recruiter came back and said they expect to offer TC of $160K-$170K.

The culture around PTO on my 6-7 person team is one where: 1) no one (besides me) takes more than 1-2 days off a year, 2) people frequently brag about how little time off they take…”I only took one day off for my child being born”, 3) people make comments that I’m “always on vacation” (in the last 2.5 years working at my company, I’ve taken cumulatively ~4 weeks off). Team workflow is deal-based so it’s difficult to plan in advance for taking time off as deals often come up unexpectedly. Cont…
