Desi MNC should not be a big problem, bcos with the new rules, the whole process of H1 b transfer is tougher than getting a new H1-b.
BTW ask your friend not to mess up his relation with his present employer untill he gets the transfer papers in hand

notice is not every thing, unless he gets the whole papers(i mean the complete process of transfer done) he should be careful.

He can start work in new co. as soon as his new co. files for H1 transfer (no need to wait for approval). Regarding time taken: It can take weeks or even months if its regular processing. For premium it should not take more than 1-2 weeks.

for starting to work at new company: I thought one has to wait for receipt notice.. which takes about 5 working days to about 2 weeks.

Re: h1b transfer

USCIS receives application quite quickly as shown by trackitt data.After that it is time taken by snail mail to reach company's office.
You can check the timings here - http://www.trackitt.com/usa-immigration-trackers/h1b
They have application filed date and USCIS received date both listed there.
I am not sure when he can start working with his new company- but I thought he needs to get his H1B transfer approved-don't take my word for it though - check with reliable sources.

H1B-VISA Transfer [2010]

If a person has applied for transfer of H1B visa to a new company when can he/she start work with the new company?

-When the LCA arrives?

If anyone of you have gone through this procedure, kindly reply your with your exp.

Thanks in advance!

You can start working after you get receipt.

Earlier you had to wait for approval and then go for visa stamping some time later. Now I dont know, but you are right, its become faster/easier.

I am no lawyer but LCA filing/arriving has nothing to do with starting work with a new company. LCA filing is a standard procedure to determine what wage is to paid to you in the State/County you will be working in.

You can start work as soon as your H-1b Transfer Receipt comes through.

Did you company file the Transfer in Premium? It should come through pretty soon. Even if you get a query (god Forbid) you can still continue working as long as the query is timely responded to by your lawyer.
