Hi All ,
I am in a bit of Dilemma and would really appreciate if you all can advice what would be the best choice I make.
I recently was laid off from a company A in CO and being on an H1 work visa i had to find a job soon to maintain my work status in the country. I found a job in Ohio with Company B as a contractor via an American consulting firm with a 50% jump to my compensation().Low cost of living compared to CO , this jump in TC makes me get more bang for my buck. The work has been ok so far nothing exciting even though they have some great VR projects going on which i could potentially work in the future but as a contractor they hired on working something specific so not sure exaclty how it will pan out in the future , plus its a year contract with potential for extension. They have also just started my GC processing too.
I also managed to recieve an offer from Company C which is a full time offer () in CO. They say its company policy and will start my GC after 6 months.From the interview and the team the work here looks exciting comapred to work i am currently doing with company B.

      Can you kindly provide a reason why you would say C ? I just finished 3 years on my H1B and company C is only gonna start processing my GC after 6 months ...
      And the pay is comparatively low to company B too. Company B is paying per hour and comes up to 115K in a low cost of living area like Ohio
      Where as company B is around 92 k TC for Denver CO, hence confused.

    Company C, anytime, if comparable TC. Consulting jobs are risky on visa and no career growth.

      You still think company C is the best choice ?

      In this scenario I would prep more and look for company D. I suggest moving out of consulting company as soon as you can.
