Having second thoughts about the offer after accepting it.

So I accepted SAP offer 4 days back. While offering HR mentioned that they will try to expedite H1B processing(deadline April 1) but it is ultimately upto the lawyers at fragomen. I thought 1 month is a good timeline for processing. Now I am having second thoughts and serious dilemma that I am losing a chance with my existing company which will surely file H1B for me and fragomen on the other hand has bad reputation.
I am on my OPT currently and in the current government situation I don't want to lose a shot at H1B. How does it look if I tell SAP HR that I will join if my LCA can be processed in 2 weeks? I know on the ethical grounds it doesn't sound right in going back on the offer already accepted but I am in this somewhat unique situation bcoz of visa. Kindly suggest best course of action. I am in a serious dilemma and couldn't even sleep properly the last two days lol. SAP join date is April 1.

    Stay with your current company. Lawyers hired by SAP are shit.

      I have seen mostly SAP Concur employees having bad experiences with fragomen and not other companies. Is this more specific to SAP?.
      Also, if I say the recruiter that I will join after LCA is filed, will it result in losing my offer? As I accepted 4 days back I am not sure how they would see it. Do you know if SAP HR would understand the situation ?

      How can you file LCA if you are not employed by SAP? I don't thin this is possible. In any case, I would not trust whatever SAP lawyers say.

    Fragomen has bad reputation? I thought they were pretty good. Isn’t it true?

      I had only good experiences with them so far.

    Fragomen is just the worst immigration company ever. They always answer your emails when it is already too late. They are really, really slow. I would put my fate on their hands.

    You can say that to HR, end of the day your future is important and they can wait.

      Dude you have to right to complain about slow green card. Indians are waiting in the queue for 50 years.

      Actually I re read your comment you’re talking about the company process and not USCIS. Makes sense.

    Fragomen will try to get your stuff done. But they wait till it's time sensitive. For example, I got issued an rfe. And if you have a deadline on the 30th of March, they will send your paperwork on the 28th.

    I joined one of my company on March second week. Fragomen did file my H1B. Your HR / Immigration officer just need to communicate the urgency. If you communicate properly, Frogmen will file LCA today or tomorrow.
