H1B not selected for the FY20 lottery. Per immigration lawyers, there’s 2 options: H1B lottery again vs L1B visa (after 1 yr abroad). What’s the diff and which is better for a Green card req later on?

I think trying to lottery again is a no brainier. If you don't get it then pursue the l1 route. No clue about the green card path (for ROW the difference is only that you don't need a perm, no idea if it changes the line for India/China citizens) but it is harder to move jobs with L1

Thanks everyone

If you are a manager or above, L1B would be a good option as you GC would be applied in EB1

You must be referring to L1A.

Both have their pros and cons! L1B is relatively same time for a path to PR.

You should ask them for L1A, that accelerates your path

Th pros of L1B is your spouse can work on L2. Cons are: its for 5 years, cannot switch employers. Pay in L1B usually sucks because of your lack of leverage against the employer.

+1.. And can switch to L1A during extension, afyer 3 or 5 years to get 7 years

L1A is the best. Some random osmania university person can get GC faster by that route than a Harvard graduate due to the way it is designed. Manager title is not hard to get.

Agree with EY1. L1A has really high rejections rates

Anyone here who started their consulting careers later in life? Always seeing posts about how young people make it to P... wondering about the other stories. I started as a C at 29 (yes, unfortunately, I fall into the bucket of exp hire hired at a lower level...), made M at 33. Doing well but also feeling like I’m already too old to aim to be a P. Hoping for some perspectives.
