    Did you do PhD and have published research papers? If not, many of us have managerial and directorial titles but stuck on EB2. I know a dinosaur who still alive in hope of getting GC.

      Perhaps, the dinosaur will live for another 200 years and will die before GC comes.

      Even Phds are stuck with EB2. It is PhD + research papers. The bar is super high. I know of VPs who are stuck on EB2. However, there is a loophole which is exploited by Indians (I am an Indian BTW). Take transfer to Broadcom Bangalore. After 1 year take transfer back to Broadcom USA. This time come on L1A not H1B. And voila, you qualify for EB1 because you are an international manager. Companies such as Wipro, Infosys are known to exploit this loophole for their benefit.

    Don't think so. I have friends who are managers in tech companies and they only qualify for EB2.

    Nope . You need to have experience in that field and you stepping ladder in your current role . Like swe to sr SWe . Eb1 can be apply if you switch company and role is 50^ % difference and have multi country experience as manager.
