When you say fun I’m assuming you mean work I enjoy doing because I find it meaningful and not fun as in playing dodgeball for a living. 20%

20% less than my current package (450k all in)

I already find work fun. Would take similar pay for a role with good people and better W/L balance and good career trajectory, but don’t know to the extent that those roles exist.

Yeah, 20% seems reasonable. BCG offers an 70/80/90 model which means 70% capacity for client work (and 10% capacity for office contibution), 80% pay, 90% tenure. However, 80% working hours of course means 9-6 plus the occasional evening...
