Does anyone write cover letters when applying to other firms from a senior or above level?

My view on cover letters is that you write them if your experience doesn't fit nicely in a resume and it's not a job that you think you're qualified for.

Hey all, Finally leaving consulting and I cannot overstate the importance of networking. I knew I was leaving at year 3 of EY so starting in year 2 I started having random virtual chats with people within and beyond my network to learn about opportunities at their firm. When year 3 came around I started following back up with people who I made connections with and secured 3 offers in under a month. In all cases someone senior was vouching for me, guaranteeing me interviews.

Need some career advice: I got an offer at a tiny consulting firm, ~10 people total. My current company is bigger and I'm about to be promoted to manger (+) The pay would be a SIGNIFICANT jump (~140k to ~200k), better work life balance, and I like the owner (-) I am still learning and wouldnt have the same size mentor network. The type of work is mostly PMO (re: boring). Job security is a concern due to company size. The challenge of going to a larger firm if things dont work out. Thoughts?
