Do all companies allow unpaid leave of absence while waiting for EAD? Any experiences to share?

I am in a difficult situation with making a mistake in applying for an H4 visa with my spouse’s employer while waiting for my company to file my L1 extension which they did after my H4 was filed. Now my H4 has arrived but I don’t have an EAD yet and the L1 is still in extension decision. I’ve totally messed up and the only way I see out of this is to request unpaid leave of absence while I try to get my H4 EAD but I don’t know how sympathetic my company will be since I filed the H4 independently of them. How supportive are companies of unpaid LoA for Visa reasons? Does anyone have any experience in begging their company to allow this?
