There are days I'm glad I made the move and there are days I wonder why I left such an awesome situation to rebuild.

Agree with D1. I left mid year and felt that I lost a year because of my network. So something to consider. Took me two years to build a similar network at the new firm...

D1/P1- that's what I'm expecting too. Just so hard to leave when people are fighting for you to stay.

Brand name versus type of experience. Assume experience at the brand name will be less relevant to what I want to do long-term. The “brand” in this case is not Big 4/MBB
