Yes. Contracts also give you more flexibility to jump without making you look like a job hopper as well

Usually there's flexibility if you've completed the projects required to negotiate flexible end dates. Also if you do 4 6m contracts it looks ok, while changing jobs 4 times in 2y looks quite bad Irrelevant though if you are keen on the role

Yes

I joined D's Workday practice as a C and been here ~8 months. I'm getting an offer from a lesser known practice with a 66% increase and a promo to SC. I currently love my job and team. The only motivation to jump is the money. If i stayed at D i'd prob get promoted next year and yet it wont match the salary i'm getting offered today. The money would allow me to reach my goals a lot faster, but is right to move just for the money? I know the work at the other firm will be less interesting.
