Anyone have any experience in evaluating an offer that comes at a pretty steep pay cut (20%) but you get a chance to do something super interesting?

I did that and ended up making more after a year and getting promoted early. Definitely glad I moved over to something I care about.

I did it when I joined EY 8 years ago... no regrets. Your mileage may vary.

I took a 30% pay cut going from an interesting defense contractor job I liked to an interesting and prestigious government job. Was it worth it...eh, 50/50 at best, would have to ask me again in 5 years.

Vanilla civil service, sure. Different story for some of the deployable and more action-oriented roles.
