Does H/S/W Admissions understand the prestigious of T2 strategy shops (OW, S&, ATK, LEK, etc), or do they value working at an Accenture, PwC, Deloitte as the same?

Currently working at a large civil defense firm but have the opportunity to move to a small two person firm and take over for an attorney becoming a judge. The partners were honest with me and informed me that the firm is having money problems this year- the remaining partner said he may not take a salary next year to ensure I (and our paralegal) are paid. I am a bit worried to leave my financially stable position but also think it’s a great opportunity, thoughts?
