Default Need your advice

My GC was started by a company A with priority date of June 2004 in EB3. 140 was approved and filed 485 in July 2007 when all gates opened. In parallel, a friend of mine started my GC processing under EB2. That has a priority date of March'2005. Current date for EB2 is Feb.2005.
I got an offer from a different company (company B), which I would like to take if I have no issues with GC etc. I am thinking what should be my plan of action. I have the following options:
1. Join company B on contract to hire on EAD that I got from company A as an employee of my friend's company. Apply 485 when EB2 becomes current for March 2005. Hopefully I will get my GC in an year and I join company B.
2. Join company B on EAD (or H1) and ask them to re-start my GC process under EB2. Issue with this is it may take a long time for my GC as PERM is taking longer nowaways.
3. Continue with my present employer and get my GC in 2020!..

Request your advice on the best course of action for me. Appreciate your help.

Few friends of my whose PD were in 2003 had got their GC no matter the current opening is for Jul2001, since you have already applied for ur I-485, I think it would be better for you to wait & watch for some more time and join company B on EAD with contract to hire position.
Or else you can start ur EB2 processing also through Company B and then later I think there is a way to make us of PD of EB3 when filling for ur I485.
