I am an international student working (F-1 visa)on contract with Verizon via third party(Brillio).
Is it a good idea to keep on working for Verizon on contract via third party or switch to a full time position?

Note: I will be getting a pay decrement in full time position but I feel more secured from Visa perspectives. Please suggest!

    If you are working as a full time employee, then the probability of getting RFEs in case your H1B filing gets picked is low.

    I have worked in brillio for around 3+ years in projects where you have to be a consultant and I can tell you that FTE pay a lot more and plus more benefits than what brillio gives. I'm not sure how you are saying that contractor position you getting paid more.

    I had been a Consultant for 11 years. Not lucrative in any aspect. Leetcode and move FTE anywhere.

    Make sure if they can provide you H-1B.

    Certain orgs at Verizon do not offer sponsorship. Better have that conversation with your manager.
