Move within the newly reorganized company or quit.

Moving within the company requires manager approval to apply for other internal roles..

It depends on a number of factors. What are you willing to endure? Is it worth it (given your position and career mobility)? How long have you been there (seniority can be a good indicator of flexibility to move teams)? I think having answers to these questions would help with what your next move should be.

That's a good idea..I'm not sure if anyone within my reach has a say in the re orgs..it comes from the SVP level

Do you enjoy the company? I would fight to move to another team and build a good case for why you want to do so. But uf you have plans to leave than it's best to just thought it out until you're ready to move on

How long ago did this happen? Could it be that your new manager is just super stressed out at the changes and might be better once things settle down? If not, then I'd probably start looking for other opportunities internally if possible. It's not worth it if you're going to be miserable every day.

This happened a 3 weeks ago and the manager was hired 3 months ago. I'm not miserable yet but the thought of speaking to him everyday with his unpleasant mood and behavior is very toxic..sucks out the positivity in me

My personal opinion is that it doesn't get better - managers get the energy they put out. If you're unhappy, and not vibing, you're well within your rights to switch (and if they're a good manager, they won't take it personally). If you'd rather not start the drama of an internal role switch, start looking at opps outside the org.

Sorry to hear that. Just keep in mind it's his issue, not yours. However, if it is affecting your work I would either see about discussing gently with him or, if that's not an option, see about moving to a different department or role

Please help. Husband was in Canada (and still is) at the time his H1B was approved, so he received I797B instead of the usual I797A approval. Since I797B comes without I-94 attached at the bottom, his H1B status becomes valid only after he gets his visa stamped from home country and enters the US on H1B. Due to COVID, we don’t intend to make a trip to India anytime soon. Will his employer be able to start the PERM/I-140 process without him having H1B status and while he’s still working in Canada?
