Given the immigration climate, would you guys recommend changing offices and going through an H1B amendment? I hear folks getting RFEs on that as well.

You cannot avoid it for long time anyway. Each project you work, you need get h1 b amended. So, depends on how much you want to move to other city, you should decide it. Moving to diff city is a big decision (of course it depends individual reasons but most likely it is), so I would go through h1b process for that..

Also, situation is NOT as bad as we think. Almost every company gets at least 75% of their filings approved (per USCIS & WSJ).

Has anyone here accepted an offer while the H-1B extension petition is still processing? I have an exploding offer, but don't feel comfortable taking it without first discussing my situation with my current employer, and I don't feel 100% safe discussing the matter with them while my extension petition hasn't been approved yet... My visa expires in early September, so I believe the petition should be approved soon
