I used to be a big 4 manager and couldn't take the work and the demands and excessive overtime any longer and moved to an EA role some years ago. I love it, no regrets. As a hobby I dabbled in graphic arts and basic web page development which comes in handy I found in my EA role-it gives me an edge I feel that not many other EAs do. I find that being a good EA requires good project management skills which I think your PM will fit well in, and your marketing experience/creativity will be a big plus I think that would give you an edge that you can apply in EA work as a person supporting an office or team that would be greatly valued. I find the work life balance is great which I desired, little overtime is asked of me. Yes it was a serious pay adjustment, but at that point it was more about work life balance, not making oodles of money. I think there are some EA openings at GT but depends on location.

Maybe look into team admin roles or something a bit lateral to the EA role you might be able to move up in a bit. Admin to coordinator. Good luck in your search!
