PERM Application Where Applicant’s Experience Was Obtained From Sponsoring Employer

I am currently working with an employer in the US on H1b. I have been working in datawarehousing field for the past almost 5 years. Prior to the US, I had 4 years, 5 months experience in the same field before moving to the US.

Now, for EB2 category, I am waiting for my 5 years completion time. Once that is done, I want to apply for a green card with my employer. I wanted to know one thing though, will my experience with my current employer in the US be considered or not? Since the experience has been in Datawarehousing throughout these years, it shouldn’t be a problem, right?

I have heard though, that the current employer experience is not considered. Is that true?

Apart from that, I would require the details and fee involved in the whole process and time frame for EB2.

Experience gained from the sponsoring employer cannot be used unless the job was not substantially comparable to the job offer. Therefore, it is possible to use the experience as we have successfully dealt with this issue before. Current PERM processing times are about two months and EB-2 processing is about 3-5 months.
