Leave for another consulting firm even tho I’m up for promotion in a few months at my current firm? Pros of leaving are better work life balance, not stuck in one industry, minimal travel. Cons are comp - I’d be making slightly less base than what I would after promo (tho higher then right now) and significantly less bonus

All - joined a FAANG corporation a month ago. Had several opportunities on the table and left significant money to choose current role because it was aligned with the space I want to grow in. No regrets, but just found out my hiring manager is leaving the team for an internal transfer. There was a new guy coming into our team who will now backfill my managers role potentially. Organic guy, and has stellar rep, but the reason my manager is leaving is because the team goal is unachievable. Advice?
