Situation of a good friend -

Recommended Posts

My good   has a current situation 


My H1B extension was denied beyond 6 years and I had to be back to base location. So in India currently from July 2019.

Here are few more details on the GC:

GC Category - EB3
Priority Date - Jun 2014
I 140 - Approved in 2016 (For more than 180 days now)
Current Company - Cognizant 
Current Designation - Manager Delivery 

Cognizant is reluctant to file in EB1 even if I go back to US through H1 B (cap exempt).

Would moving out of Cognizant advisable? And if I change employer, would I be still eligible for H1 B (Cap-exempt) as I 140 is approved beyond 180 days considering am out of US?

Kindly advise.
