Default H1B Consular Processing VS H1B Change of Status

Hello,

I am on STEM OPT (F-1) (Indian Citizen) working here in USA and my STEM OPT is valid till 23 May 2014. My Employer and its immigration attorney wants to file H1B this year i.e. April 2013. But they wants to file H1B consular processing i.e activate H1B only from May 2014 instead of H1B change of status which gets self activated on 1st October 2013.

So is there any disadvantage of going with H1B consular processing instead of going with H1B change of status. I have to go home to India in any case to get my H1B stamping done. so please advice onto which option is safer/reliable i.e. H1B Consular processing or H1B change of status. This is with respect to my case.

Thanks.!!!!!!!!
