I've not had the best experience at my firm with direct promotes so I guess that's a good thing for you guys (based on my perspective)

Disagree. Think there are some who are not great, some who are amazing (strongest EMs I’ve ever worked w were direct from BA). Think there is variance, just like all other EMs. And I don’t see why they wouldn’t be as good....BAs and associates do the same thing here. The bar for getting designated is the exact same

Currently an AP, but have an offer to join McKinsey as an Expert. From what I understand, these are essentially EMs. It would be a hard pill to swallow and become an EM, which was the level I was at years ago. The role would be approx 85% of base salary now, but bonus would be higher. Still TC would be lower until I make Associate Partner (Senior Expert) at McK; long-term comp is definitely higher at McK. Is it worth the short term pain and lower comp as EM for chance at P at McK?
