Just had Biometrics taken today, I see the new estimates for EB GC have gone through the roof. Anyone that has gone through the GC process recently has any insight on what is a realistic timeframe based on the stage in the process?

Why would this shock you? There are no in-person interviews due to covid. They laid off a ton of people. H1b is probably the least favorite type of visa there is by politicians (outside of diversity visa that is nearly completely cancelled now). Other types of visas processing time is the same. There are some waivers but it’s still rare. So why wouldn’t processing time not go up? I expect this to change the second they hire more people and policies to change. Also would be nice to see the end of covid, but I don’t believe anything will change for at least another 8-12 montha

So I got an amazing offer from a former CCO of mine. Trouble is, now I have to notify my current agency where I've only been working for 6 months. I really like the place and the people, but the major salary boost and permanent WFH I've just been offered are just too good to pass up. How can I let my current employer down easy?

Can someone explain very simply in their own words what the steps of going from H1B to GC is? I googled it myself but just confused about the forms associated with each step (I-140, I-485, etc.) and the approx time of each step. So far my firm has extended my H1B a month ago and while doing so asked me to briefly describe my job duties for the PERM labor certification application. Does that mean the GC process has been started? My h1b is till late 2024. What kind of timeline am I looking at?
