H1B to Green Card

I’m on H1B, and I’m in the US for 1 year and 2 month. My company (middle size startup) didn’t start my Green Card and looks like will not start it at all.
I’m planning to move to another company where I can start Green Card from day 1. Will Amazon/Google/Fb do it?

    They'll make you wait for 6 months to a year. I don't think a company starts your green card for you on day 1. Although it might be case and level dependent, and rare.

      Not true. Most FAANG companies don't care when you start the process. Technically you can start the process on Day 1 if you know where to initiate the process

    Some companies will do it by default on day 1 - other companies will do it if you negotiate it that way "before" signing all papers- you need to make sure you have it in writing.
    In either case given that it will take you 2-3 months for preparation plus joining time, you need to start right away
