H1B filed Apr 11, 2017, receipt notice also available, should I join

Recommended Posts

Here are the facts:

1. I have worked for big reputed companies during past 6.5 years (all consumer electronics, non medical, non biotech). Since last 5 months working for a medical device startup.

2. My BE is in Electronics Engineering(India) and MS is in Bioinformatics(USA).

3. Currently I have a job offer for a well known big reputed company which is non medical / biotech company.

3. My H1 transfer was filed Apr 11, 2017 and I have the receipt notice #. California Service Center.

5. The employer from whom I have offer in #3 above is asking me to join on the basis of receipt notice. 

I am scared since USCIS has suspended premium processing and also due to Mar 31 memo. 

Should I join on the basis of receipt notice or should I wait for approval to arrive?

Thanks. Please advise.

Additional question - Is receipt # required to join new employer, or is it sufficient to have proof of filing, like checks being cashed.

I think proof of filing is sufficient. Not 100% sure though.
