EB-1C (International Managers and Executives): Eligibility for H-1B managers in the USA

Question details

I started working in the USA at my current company as a technical engineer, and they sponsored my GC application under the EB2 category. Recently, I was promoted to a manager position where I now oversee a team of 10 individuals. I'm wondering if I qualify to apply for a GC under the EB1 category based on my managerial role.

What are the available avenues to pursue a GC under EB1 as a manager in my current situation?

The answer is yes, but remember, EB-1C requires that you have worked for a branch or a sister company affiliate of this company outside the U.S. for one year as an executive or managerial employee, or equivalent.
