I have 6.5 years of experience and last 3 years I have been working as project manager out of which 2 years in current company. I am handling a team a of 10 people since last 2 years including analysts and senior analysts. My company has asked me to apply for L1A. Do you think my experience is good enough for L1A or it would be better to apply in another category.
Also, is it good idea to go on B1 visa for a month and come back and immediately apply for L1A (As requirement is urgent). Few people have suggested against it.
Thank you in advance. Appreciate you help.
Depend on the requirements of the position. You are required to show you have at least one year of managerial experience for the organization within the three years immediately preceding the visa petition.

Generally speaking yes, as long as you have worked for the company outside the U.S. for at least the years prior to the transfer to the U.S. branch/subsidiary.
You seem to have acquired sufficient managerial experience ( 6.5 years) to be eligible for the L-1A status as long as the experience was obtained outside the U.S. in the past three years. The other requirements for the L-1A must also be met. However, these are concerns for the company's immigration attorney and you should present these issues to the attorney and the petitioning employer.
If your current company abroad is the sister company of the one in the US and meets all of the corporate requirements of the multinational manager and executive program, and you would be coming to manage, it may work. But the company applies. Not you.
