Does McKinsey have a job title as Project Manager?

No. Might be internal IT, but not client facing for sure.

I heard engagement leader/project leader but I see someone on LinkedIn specifically as “project manager”

The person may be an engagement manager but just put project manager on LinkedIn so other people can easily understand their role. Business analysts and associates do the same thing and put consultant on LinkedIn all the time

Fake news?

I saw this on LinkedIn too lol

No. Not officially. However, some folks use that when they start to play the manager role before getting promoted to the Engagement Manager role. It’s mostly so that if clients look up the manager they don’t see that we are staffing an Associate to be the Manager of a project, which might give them the feeling that we are not invested in the project. Similarly, we don’t have Senior Consultant, but we’re actually discouraged to use “Business Analyst” and “Associate” with clients and use “Consultant” instead. You would put your true title on your resume however, but on LinkedIn I understand why we need to be flexible.

I am on H1-b visa with an approved i-140. I am planning to apply for an office transfer which I think will need to have my PERM re-done. Does this mean that if I change my office, my existing approved i-140 gets voided? So essentially if I wish to leave the firm after transferring to another office will my “current” approved i140 and priority date still be valid? Or do I have to wait until my transferred office PERM process is completed? Apologies for the long post
