Recently moved to company A after a h1b transfer. Is there a minimum period of time I need to work for company A before I initiate a h1transfer to company B? Asking because I am having second thoughts about my company but I just started working for them.

Received H1B transfer approval email on October 4th, but haven't received physical copy oh I129 till now. Anybody had similar delays?
Hi! I’m an Indian currently on H1B in US. I got my I-140 approved for the next 3 years and need to step outside the country to get my visa stamped. I’m thinking of visiting India in December and using the drop box feature to get my visa stamped. Any intel on how long does drop box is currently taking to send the passport with visa stamped? I’m hoping to be in india for 2 to 3 weeks and unsure if I would get my visa stamped by then. Is there a source where I can see processing times for drop b?

H1B stanping question - I just got my h1b renewed, but i need to travel in december to Asia and likely the place im travelling to will not return my passport before i have to return to the US due to christmas and new years holidays.

Im afraid of taking too much vacation time across both trips.
Received an offer to join Facebook as a data scientist. Given the litigation (that just ended) with the PERM issues, is it worth accepting the offer? In 5th year of H1B, approved PERM and i140 with current employer. Priority date in March 2020. Can anyone share any insight/advice?
Currently I’m on H1B and a SA1b at PwC, EY is offering me SA3. At present, PwC just started my GC process and it’s been only 4-5 months in the initial Perm application. I’m not sure whether EY would start my GC process from Day1 if I join their organization. One of the recruiters from EY mentioned that they don’t start GC process unless I have 2 years left on H1B expiry. I have currently 4 more years left (1+3). Should I consider going to EY or stay in PwC? Open for thoughts to tackle this. TIA!PwC EY
