You still have 4 more years considering the 3 year extension. You have enough time to switch and get the I140 approved.

Thanks for boosting my confidence 😊.

Depends on how much you hate your job. 18k bump isn't worth delaying your GC start by another year in my opinion. You'd be better off longer term with a GC in your pocket. Regardless, you still 4 yes left so if you want to switch you should be OK.
