I have got my h1 stamped with my current firm. But another firm is applying H1 for me.

Meanwhile I am planning a trip to Mexico? Will that be an issue? Any one has done that before?

Just got notified I was selected in the second round of H1B picks. I received word I wasn't picked in the first round and my OPT time limit was reached at the end of July, so was transferred to the London office and started a new team from Aug 1st. Obviously had no idea I would subsequently be selected....will the fact that I am now part of a different team from the one my application was initially applied for with make me ineligible???
