On the same boat with an L-1, would be helpful to know what visas people are on when they respond.

On an L1 - and it sucks. Have so much to offer but my company doesn’t value me enough.

Work Visas are problematic under this administration. Some (H1b) are more problematic then others (TN1) but regardless, across the board work visas have become a hassle with uscis

Changed companies 6 months ago - H1B

From what I hear with L1 you're pretty much trapped until maybe you get your PERM approved (if the company decides to sponsor you). Even then it's risky but I believe there is a certain time period where you can change if your perspective employer will submit some of the required forms for you. Hard to say if that will work out in your favour with how UCIS is scrutinizing everything these days.

I hired my first employee; it didn’t work out. I’m more gregarious and I am wondering what other extroverts do in their solo practices to interface and connect with people a little more often.

Also, I’m making sufficient and sometimes even good or great money but I am finding very little to no joy in the work. Know any tricks to fix this?
