Here is a memo from one of the law firms, I found on the net.
http://www.michaelpiston.net/documents/m/changing%20employer%20after%20I-485%20is%20approved.pdf

After digging thro' forums it seems everyone talks about having the "intention" of staying with the Employer after GC.
Here's my question.
- Should the "intention" be on the day of filing 485 or the day you get GC ? (a date in future that no one can predict).

If the "intention" has to be at the time of 485 filing then, after 180 days of filing 485 one should be able to change employers, irrespective of the case being approved or NOT.

thoughts/comments ??

Logically speaking it should be while filing the petition not while getting the GC approved. All in all you should portray an intention of joining in your activities through your GC process. However, if your position warrants a shift and you can justify it, I guess you are good to go.
