Happy but possible visa issues

Credit Karma ohhno

I am pretty happy at Credit Karma with my manager and growth and all. My manager is pretty cool at CK, perks are nice, annual stock refresher starting this year. WLB is very good (chill team).
I have 2 H1B chances left and CK really can't do much if I am unlucky both the times & some companies won't interview me if I have less than 2 H1B chance left.
So, I got an offer at Amazon.
Current TC: 180K
Amazon TC: 185K

YOE: 1

Is it worth going to Amazon for less visa hassles or should I just not worry much about visa and stay at CK?

    Stay. If you donโ€™t get H1 next time, interview at Amazon and Microsoft for SDE2 role.

    Donโ€™t bother about visa. Itโ€™ll work out. Give it a couple years. Pursue your career.

    When is the next H1B lottery? Can you push the potential start date with Amazon after you know the outcome of that?

      You can try conveying this to the recruiter. They won't revoke your offer since hiring is a lot of effort.

    I would not risk the visa situation because in the end you might be screwed. Also, CC should be kind enough to offer green card process, why don't they do that? ๐Ÿ˜
    Check whether Amazon would do the green card for you. I've been through so much visa hassle that I definitely recommend prioritizing that first.

      Lol. It's chill because I got used to it now.
      I have 3 projects on my plate this quarter, but I am quite comfortable with CK stack now to deliver.
      Also, FYI lots of chill teams at CK if that's what you looking for. Search properly ๐Ÿ˜‰
      I have noticed lots of coasters
