Companies with sure L1 visa

Jul 13 14 Comments

Which are the companies which have standard/set process where they can send employees on L1 visas to US. I am specifically looking for L1A, already a Manager. I am looking to interview at these places.

I am listing which i know, please suggest more. Obviously looking for places outside US (to goto US later on L1)

1. Amazon, anywhere outside US (afaik they have pretty standard process, spend 1 year, apply internally to any team and move on L1). But do they give L1A to SDM III ?
2. Microsoft Do they give L1A to 64, 65 ?
3. Linkedin
4. Google
5. Other ????

    Microsoft used to give L1A to most PMs and engineering managers.. L1As have come under a lot more scrutiny now and hence a lot of PMs I know at least are moving on L1B.. But have not heard the same for engineering managers.. In general, moves are getting slower.. A lot of teams in the US dont hire from idc anymore.. I don't know why.. I know this because I've tried referring ppl from idc over to teams here where I know ppl.. Be prepared for it to take 2 years even.. The minimum 1 year is the rule for L1 visa.. Doesn't guarantee a job here..

      It's allowed only after L62 now. In that way it would have got slower. But should not competition have reduced once you are L62 ? That would have made relocation bit easier. But yes still it would have required patience and perseverance.

      How difficult it will be for L64/65 ?

      Not at all difficult, process is to find a team in US, typically it slowed down because it was taking atleast 6 months for visa process to be done which was too long for alot of teams. Now it's better so should be fine

      L62 is the rule that idc has created to reduce their own attrition.. Yep depends on finding a team.. They have to like you.. They will likely have a couple of interview rounds as well.. All I'm saying is - more teams in the US were willing to talk to folks in idc earlier.. It feels like that has gone down.. Due to visa delays most likely - since here you can get someone in 2 weeks.. Or also the fact that many orgs in redmond are now experimenting with letting ppl move around without interviews.. A lot of ppl I know at L63+ have been trying for a year or more to move.. Of course I don't have any real data to back this.. I moved from idc 4 years ago when there were fewer restrictions..

      oh. Is there any standard process like find a job on internal career website and go, they need you etc?

      Yes but very unlikely to be promoted. It's gotta be the same level.
      It's damn hard to be director too.

    You need to work in a managerial position for at least 2 years outside of the USA prior. All the techs and financials with Global insurance being others

    Are you talking about blanket L1? This is something not many companies have.
