I've received 2 offers to FAANG companies this year as Sr Product Mgr, got along brilliantly with the teams, but ultimately neither were willing to help process my visa in this climate. I know folks have it more rough, but feeling pretty bummed out.

I thought usually faang companies are on top of their game for visa sponsorships and pretty much apply for a gc soon once you start. Which faang is it if you don’t mind sharing ?

Dear 🐟 My I94 has expired and the current firm has applied for an h1b extension. But it is still pending as it was done in regular processing. I have a receipt from USCIS. I have an offer from another company, would they be able to file for an h1b transfer at this point? Would they also apply for an extension at the same time? Worried as I don't have a valid I94 and am staying in US on borrowed time with a USCIS receipt only
