Indian 🐟, just confirming - we don’t need a UK transit visa to connect via LHR as long as we have a valid US visa (in my case, H1B) correct?

Anyone who is on an H1B in consulting (strategy/ operations) tried visa transfer recently to Tech strategy roles? Wanted to understand if people have had a smooth sail or is there any reason to worry about timelines? Just can’t go on at McKinsey tbh. Thanks
New employer just filed H1B transfer (Change of Employer). Immigration says I can start immediately and not have to wait for receipt notice or approval. I honestly don't foresee any reason for a denial and plan to give notice today to start in 3weeks. Any thoughts? Risky to start before receipt notice / approval? Thanks!
Hi all, my H1B got approved today and I am waiting on the actual physical notice. In parallel I have a L2 EAD extension request in process. My H1B is valid from oct 1 only.

Sorry, super green when it comes to this
