Few questions to answer your question... how much time you got on h1? How many years Deloitte took to start GC? Do you think new firm will start GC immediately ( in a week time)? How many months or years will be added to the current wait time under EB2 if you join new company and your priority date is two years from now...?

D gc process will take more than an year atleast

Wait for i140. Otherwise you're just going to reset this all over again. No way around it.

I hope to get some thoughtful responses from this post and nothing more. I work for a mid-tier firm after working for big 4s, I joined here after being let go. Having worked for a year, I kind of have this constant thought in my mind that my next lay off is coming. Reasons I think I don’t meet the expectations- in a way my work quality is average. Given am on H1b and a family man, this constant thought of lay off is driving me so crazy that I fear might take me to depression. What should I do?

This one is for folks on h1b visa. So at time when you have an offer in hand(not accepted the offer yet and h1b transfer process not yet begun) while you are working with your current employer, do you even speak to your employer about your new offer to see if they make a counter offer? Is there a risk involved with this approach assuming your current employer doesn't provide you with a counter offer and they ask you to leave immediately (and your h1b visa hasn't been transferred either)
