EB-1C for Functional Managers - Overseas Team Inclusion
I had few questions on EB1C filing; - I am here in the US from 2015. Prior to that I was working as an Manger for the same firm in India. - I was appointed as a Principal and then promoted as a Solution Manager last year. My role involves tasks during the entire duration of a given project and as part of the project I co-ordinate with the offshore teams assigned on the project for deliverable and to assign other tasks related to the project. 1. As part of EB1C filing is there a mandatory requirement that a manager should be having dedicated team members 2. If 1 is yes then can we consider the offshore team members assigned per project who would be supervised to the level of getting status of tasks, providing clarifications, training them etc. 3. Is there a minimum number of reports required in the US and while I was in India, and if those reports have left the organization is that Ok?
Processing Times Involved in NIW
If I may verify the processing times involved in NIW. Since it falls under EB2 category, I am assuming it may be a long time before I can get my EAD card and be able to change employers. Also, I want to confirm if there could be issues if I change employers during the process - If so, I'd prefer to change my current employer before starting with it.

You can change employers any time if you are a self-applicant and will continue to work in your stated area of national interest.  But NIW priority date will take the same time as a normal EB-2 application does.  See:
