Is Premium Processing stopped right now for H1B transfers? Might have to defer the job hunting if PP can’t be done as switching on acknowledgement seems a bad idea in current scenario.

Yes, it is suspended for all requests.

The second part is basically your risk appetite

If it is direct FTE with a known and good company...don't wait. Approval rate for such companies is ~100%

T1 - Would you recommend MetLife or Talend?

OP - You can get the job, sign the offer, be transparent with your new employer that you’ll start only after you get the final approval notice.  If your new employer agrees, they can file the petition under regular processing. You can always update to premium processing when the restrictions are lifted. That’s what I’m planning to do.

When do you all think premium processing is going to resume?

I hope sooner! It says on their site that it’s suspended due to COVID issues. I’m guessing they’ll resume as soon as the virus situation is under control. I don’t think they would want to lose on all those $$.
