Question Employer Sponsored - TR vs. PR

Hi,

I have been approached by an Australian company who is willing to sponsor me. I have some questions about the differences in visas which are as below:
1. what are the disadvantages with TR verses PR? Do I need to pay for Healthcare, Kid's schooling etc.? Only main drawback I know so far is that I need to leave Aus within 28 days in case the employment is terminated.
2. Is processing TR any faster than PR in real world though Imm website states that it's the same period? Usually how long if all documents needed are ready?
3. Is there any restriction if I change the employer during my TR period if I didn't like this job?
4. Since I don't know what exactly the salary level in my position, is there any tough regulation so that the employer won't give me very low salary?
5. Do I need to finish full 2 years of work before I can apply for PR?
7. My skills in the process for re-assessing by ACS and haven't received the result yet. Previously my skills set was not in SOL but it was in ENSOL. I don't want to lose this opportunity in case my skills still doesn't appear in SOL. If it does, can I still apply for GSM PR while I am in TR and working in Australia ?
Appreciate your quick response.

There are diffrences relating to eligibility in the first place for both employer and employee, obligations re wages being part of that eligibility and with TR you're not eligible for full PR rights and will have to pay for medical insurance and childrens education.
You can seek an alternate employer sponsor with the TR and yes you can apply for independent PR while in Australia but you would need to take a trip out to have an independent PR visa granted.
Have a read of full details @ Visa Options - Employer Sponsored Workers - Workers - Visas & Immigration

Thank you, Wanderer. You are always there to help me with answers. Really appreciate it.
One question, I am still wondering is the time to process these visas. This job needs to be filled within a month or max two. So is it even possible?
Anybody have gone through this?

TR is faster. But PR is also possible within 2 months like someone who posted here but generally takes longer.

TR is about 6 weeks from lodgement before. I don't know now.

The times for processing employer sponsored visas can vary significantly just like independent skilled visas, it being dependent on numerous factors, the employer making a commitment the first step and their eligibility and how they handle the process just as telling as yours.
If they use an agent based in the city where they are located, an agent may have latest info as to just how long it can be expected to take.
An employer sponsored PR could take several months and then there is the time taken for health/character checks that are outside of any Immi control.

Because the company urgently required to hire an employee, they are not able to wait that long. Is there any possibility to go Australia eg. with Business visa and later turn into working visa or PR?
Thanks in advance.

You can go on an ETA visa but even the ETA business does not allow you to work unfortunately.

I am based in China and I checked the Australian Embassy website and it says it takes 8 weeks (max?).

So can I go with this visa Business - Long stay (Subclass 457) and work? Then later apply for PR.

Went through some hustle and bustle days to work out with paper work but found out that it's a lot of work to do and won't be able to reach in deadline for the job. Fortunately, I got the long awaited ACS re-assessment report today and got "ICT Business Analyst" which is in the new SOL.
So I am thinking of applying Sponsored PR instead. My brother is in Australia with Citizenship, both him and his wife is working. An Australian company is also wlling to hire me for their internal IT project until I get a job when I arrive in Australia.
Now I am wondering if a Relative sponsored PR is faster or company sponsored?
Anybody knows how long it takes in best scenarios these days?
Appreciate your suggestions.
