Companies that file a green card without H1B

I recently got an offer from a series b startup, who tells me that they would file a green card application straight without h1b.

I am from a country where green card comes out within 1.5 year after application

The current company I am at working only files a green card after h1b. It has been less than 6 months since I started working here.

If TCs are the same, and startup work is much more intense than the current company, is this green card filing enough reason to switch?

Do you guys know any much bigger companies (Uber Airbnb) who would file green card without h1b?

      Worst company ever. I have friends crying out that Emc does not file gc until 5th year of h1b.

    • Dell meh..
      That's not true at all. Depends on your manager but they can file right away.

      TN is a special work visa for Canadians and Mexicans. You typically “shouldn’t” apply for GC while on TN because it’s not a dual intent visa, and you “could” have TN revoked

      You can go from any status to GC. How do you think foreigners who come here as tourists and get married to Americans get GC? Duh!! And TN does not get revoked. I am the living proof of it! Lawyered just want to make extra money by promoting conversion to H1B.
      Here are the basic rules when applying for GC from a non immigrant status:
      1) Do not file I-485 the first 90 days after last entry into the US! Both 485 and your status will get revoked.
      2) Do not travel outside the US after filing I-485 until you receive EAD/AP card. Make sure your lawyer applies for EAD/AP. After that you can easily travel in Advance Parole.

      When I was at Intel years ago, they didn’t do it. Maybe their policy has changed now.

      I left in 2014. At least up until then they didn’t go straight into GC process from a non H/L status. They had also frozen GC process for a few years during the 2008 recession. So when they resumed it, there were a lot of people in the queue.

      I see.
      I joined in 2015 and the process started right off the bat.

      It also depends on how much you got left on your work visa and if it is renewable.
