B permit or family reunion permit

Hi all.

A friend of mine is in a interesting position and needs some advice.
He is in CH (for 6 years) with a B permit and his spouse joined him (about 2 years ago) on a family reunion visa (regroupment familial activite lucrative authorisee).
Now she is being offered a position with a company that is offering to apply for her work permit.

1. Should she take the offer of the company applying for B permit?
2. what are the pros of changing from family reunion visa to B permit.
3. what are the cons of the change.

Not sure if this is relevant, but they are both Non-EU and highly qualified (i.e both hold PhDs)

Thanks!

Re: B permit or family reunion permit

Since the family reunification permit trumps the other and she already has it, there's simply no point in trying to get an independent one. As she already has permission to work here, the company will be wasting their time applying because the canton isn't going to give her an independent one out of their limited quota numbers.
