Is using TPS a good idea and maintain F-1 status

Here is my experience-
I applied for tps while I was still in school with F-1 status.
TPS got approved with TPS-EAD and I started working full time while I was in school. I also informed college DSO about the off campus job and they were ok with it since there was an earthquake in Nepal and they were trying to be empathetic.
Once graduated, I applied for OPT-EAD and used OPT-EAD to work for the same company and renewed the OPT_EAD after a year.
I switched the job and started consulting ( with Consultancy) using OPT-EAD and they applied for my H1 which was approved without major issue for 3 yrs. I have been working with just one client for last 2 years.
Consultancy/my employer have applied for my GC via eb3 and now I am waiting for an interview while my 140 is already approved. I will update once I hear from USCIS.
