Not sure I'd go for a salary decrease to move into a back office / second tier role even if the brand was strong. What are you trying to solve for with the move?

Pretty much what Partner1 said. Was a software engineer at a F20 firm, felt like a second class citizen because software development wasn’t their core revenue generating department.

Considered one of those roles and turned it down. Felt like they were trying too hard to convince me they weren’t second class citizens.

This right here. Banks have very entrenched hierarchies. The individuals I’ve met when I was a humble IT consultant constantly like to remind you where you sit on the ladder

That said OP, how you feel about this depends on the culture of the BB and how the strategy role is positioned. Especially if it’s a universal bank like JPMC or something, I find that strat teams are appreciated for the significant value they bring in moving large organisations in the same direction. Sure you will likely never be the CEO of a division, but you’ll be in good position for a COO-type position when the time comes. Figure out what exactly you want from this move, not everyone needs to chase after the top / most “prestigious” roles. At the same time, watch out for cultural redflags alluded to in the thread! That kind of mindset can be quite prevalent in some of the BBs.
