Hello there! Presently on EB2 and of Indian nationality with Priority date in Aug 2016. Since I am a people manager and we have an office in Toronto, we were looking into getting a PR in Canada and having me work there for a year before coming back to the US on a L1A visa. Thus shortening my GC wait time. However with the recent EB3 retrogression, they are looking into possibly downgrading me to EB3 instead. Which route (L1A or EB3) would be quicker and dependable? How to convince them? Thanks!

Today I have joined KPMG global services and I was shocked to hear one of their policy about vehicle parking. Employees below Manager level are not given any parking space for neither two-wheelers nor four Wheeler across all the offices in India. They said if you are commuting by your vehicle you have to figure it out on your own about the parking. I mean what kind of lunatics make these policies. Do they think all the people below Manager level can not own a vehicle. Is it justifiable?
