Is it stupid to take a pay cut when leaving consulting? I have an offer for an industry senior manager that is ~5k under my total comp but has a ton less stress/hours. (MBB EM)

SM asking big 4 for 180$ base. Just got a boutique firm asking me to contract for a 18 months. Given I have to pay my own insurance, health, benefits etc., how should I calculate a good hourly rate.

Would you exit (+30% more salary - less work - good company but potentially more narrow role) when you have a substantial shot to Senior Manager this year (I.e. 6-7 months until decision takes place)?

Promoted to SC waiting on comp. Will be in the last round of interviews at Wayfair for an SM role and they are talking a base comp at least $20k higher than what I make as a C. Is the grass greener?

My parents are threatening to cut me out of their will if I move in with my long term (5+ year) boyfriend. I am doing it because it will save money, however my parents think this isn’t a good enough reason. I pay for everything myself and I feel that if they believe I should live alone then they should chip in towards that - otherwise I’m going to make the best financial decision for myself. We love manipulative hyper-religious parents.
