Has anyone taken the pay cut to work in sports or know of fellow consultants who have?

Got an offer for a strategy manager role at my dream sports organization. Great role, team (all ex MBB), and timing to join the organization, but it’s a 35% pay decrease.

I have no major personal constraints at this point in my life so if there was ever a time to try it, it’s now. But also not sure if there is fallacy in taking a pay cut for your dream job.

How's life at back office data teams at consulting firms? I'm referring to consulting firms' headquarters central team in case back office means something else.

Would love any insight on working on these types of teams or MBB central teams specifically too

Currently a PM at a large tech company (close FANGMULA). Used to work in markets and while there are lots of benefits to this role, one of the biggest cons is the lack of bonding with coworkers. ie happy hours, dinners, parties etc. This role feels pretty isolating as the engineering teams are not too social.

Thinking of making a move to MBB, and have an offer at the moment. It's for a client facing product role.

Thoughts?

I’m an MS Management Student graduating in June 2023. I applied to over 40 positions within the Big 4/MBB and even with extensive networking, I haven’t heard back from any really. I have an offer from a pretty well-known but less prestigious Consulting Firm, but I’m wondering what my chances even are of going Big 4/MBB if I’m not a campus hire. Will they even consider me for an experienced hire a year or two down the road if they showed no interest this time? Any advice welcome!

Got an email from BCG in response to my application saying that they have essentially stopped processing experienced hire applications until late Q1 2022, but that they liked my profile and will contact me again then.
Does anyone know if other MBB/T2 firms in the U.K. are in a similar position?
Also, this seems like a generic email, or do you think the „we liked your profile“ means at least an interview will be likely when they continue to process applications?
