Default Changing employer on H1B or EAD


I am on H1B and still 4+ years are left on my new H1. I have got my I-140 EB2 cleared in July 07 and applied for I-485 in Aug. Got EAD in Oct.

My question is what is the better option out of the following to change employer:

1. To transfer H1B to new company with the same Job Title as was in previous H1B. I have good relation with my existing employer.

2. Or I can invoke AC21 and start working on EAD with new employer (after 180 days).


Q1: If I want, can I come back to my existing employer on same old H1B (if thats still valid) ?

Q2: I frequently go to India (at-least one time in a year). So with EAD and AP, there might be more waiting/ filing each year etc.

Q3: Which is the better option for me - H1B or EAD ?
