Do h1b visa approval rates (transfers, extensions etc) differ by the profession or company filing it? I am talking about real companies (not contracting ones) and real titles (like Software engineer, Data scientist, product manager, analytics manager, data analyst, research engineer etc).

Example (considering similar background and compensation) -
1. Does a PM at a 100 people startup have lesser chances of approval than a PM at Microsoft?
2. Does a PM at Microsoft have lesser chances of approval than SWE at Microsoft?

    No one knows it for sure. And I don't think anyone here works for USCIS. I wouldn't trust any of the answers on this topic here.

      So fashion models get to earn $161k, live in NYC, and have a higher probability of getting a visa. Only if I was better looking... Sigh!

    Exactly, no one knows for sure.

    just looking at what’s happened in my friends circle, no differences in name of the role.
    I think it’s just luck.
    Though, my friends at startups or smaller sized companies have been rejected multiple times.
