So I have been casually interviewing and got a very intriguing offer today. However, my current employer had just filed for my PERM a couple of weeks back. Any suggestions on how to proceed? I'm guessing I'll have to restart my PERM process at the new company if I decide to switch. Any personal experiences?

If you are not Indian or Chinese national I say go for the new offer. If you are Chinese, I say you stick with your current employer until PERM is approved So you don't waste time getting your priority date. If you are Indian, It's up to you...i would just go for a better opportunity because one or two extra years seem pale to the overall 10+ years wait time...

EY4, shake hands there. Also Chinese. Priority is Becoming current soon. Fingers crossed

Your call - but I’d recommend sticking it out and getting your GC. Then switch as much as you want. Just my 2 cents

Just go with the new offer. missing out a Few weeks of perm won’t really improve ur GC timelines by a whole lot. Also make sure there are no claw-back agreement with ur current employer.

Don't you have to restart PWD and all that other stuff too?

Go with the new offer. It’s always the better work and mental satisfaction you get out which is what matters. Also, you’re just some weeks into the PERM process, so shouldn’t matter
