    The good employers want to retain employees even if they are not selected in the H-1B lottery. The time and money it takes to hire and train new people is a huge cost to the company, so it is in their best interest to retain these employees.

    The Big Four (PricewaterhouseCoopers, Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu, Ernst & Young, and KPMG) have offices all over the world. If you are really valuable to the company and your manager wants you, he/she will not let you leave. They will try to transfer you to their other offices with similar clients and work.

    There is a good probability of being transferred to their offices in Asia or other countries where they have a strong presence. Also, if you have worked with clients in those countries, it’ll help your probability of transfer.

    But all companies including the Big Four cannot guarantee that your employment will be continued even in the best of cases. There is a lot of bureaucracy and HR requirements that may prevent you from being transferred.

    There is a chance that you may lose your job and you may not be able to do anything about it. The best option in that case would be go back to school and start a new job when you are selected in H-1B.
