Sorry for my ignorance but does level bump matter for immigration?

Oh I see, feel like you should throw out some feelers and interview around anyways.

I was in same situation and given up promotion and in fact, EB2 as well. To me, it’s very difficult to manage the next level with all immigration complications. Have to cope with all restrictions to mange the role and it would be less productive as well. In fact, if we go to other organization then it is going to be reset of GC process. I would recommend to get the EAD as early as possible that will help in next stage.

I was offered a job in DC that's a pretty steep raise for me, but to be honest, I don't feel comfortable living in the city proper. I don't agree with the mandates, and I've heard crime is super high. Any advice on good areas?

After getting promoted in Feb 2020 (lol fml) I designed and implemented a significant piece of data infrastructure that is beyond what’s expected of someone at my level. In 2021, I was not recognized for this accomplishment and a guy who knows nothing about the technology was promoted over me. It’s been a year since his promotion & the wheels are starting to come off: others are becoming increasingly aware of his ineptitude. What’s the best way to subtly pour gasoline on this fire?

I was caught off guard at my compensation meeting by getting a raise to $100k but also getting a promotion. The raise was decent and it was the minimum I was expecting, but since I got promoted as well I thought the amount should have been higher. We offered a potential candidate $100k for my previous title. For future reference, how can I bring that up without sounding ungrateful and unappreciative? Thoughts?
