first year M making $130k, 5-7%ish bonus a year, 10%ish raise a year. Strong network, but a good amount of work. Might start travel soon again (this a negative).

New offer, 155k, 8-9% expected yearly bonus, 3-5% expected yrly raise. Offer from previous client, I know the team and they easy to work with. At a large company. Should be pretty solid WLB. Fully remote.

Not a huge striver, would prob be pretty content with the new role and not moving up a bunch quickly. Should I take it?

Hi All :) I need advise on whether it is possible to get my first time H1B stamped at a US consulate in Canada ? I am required to travel to Canada anyway for my PR stamping and I am trying to figure out if I can get my H1B stamped around the same time while I am in Canada for my PR, since it is extremely difficult to get appointments in India these days? I am currently based in US. Thanks!
