Got an offer from Amazon but didn't get selected on H1-B. Currently on L1-B with another company. What can I do now? I can't really go to another country because my wife is employed here.
1. Is there a way for me to retain the offer until the next H1-B lottery?

2. My offer from Amazon was 50% higher than what I make now. Can I ask my current employer to match it?

I’m surprised to know that Amazon interviewed you knowing your immigration status. In my experience being on L1 is deal breaker

How do you know if/when it's time to switch careers?
My current job has a solid progression to make more money, but it takes years to get there. I make about $70k right now. As a data engineer/analyst. Primarily work on the engineering side, but I went to school for analytics. I never saw myself doing the engineering role, but when I first took it, it was a great start to my career.

I was offered a new position mainly in management in a completely different industry for $100k and bonuses.

I started at Amazon 6 months ago from consulting and I’m definitely performing under expectations. I don’t like the role since it’s too technical and I spend too much time coding. Every 1:1 with my manager is spent discussing my “progress” on projects, “training” I should be taking or “creating plans and lessons learned” to improve but I just don’t care. I am actively interviewing elsewhere anyways. Am I about to be put on a PIP?
