If Leaving FDD (deals advisory) for an FP&A job at the senior associate level, should I expect a base salary decrease?

Nah FDD is typically underpaid. You should definitely be getting a good raise if you jump, unless you think your current salary is way above market. Exception being if you join a start-up with lower base but good stock options/bonus, but that's different.

I have 1.5 YOE and half in FDD. Is it realistic for me to land a senior FP&A position?

Please vote for which you’d realistically / actually want (and why). Context is mid-30s for me, FYI. Either a) $800k total comp, but work 70-80 hrs a week and content / work you genuinely don’t care about, b) $500k and work you care about / want to do long term but still working ~70 hrs/wk, c) $300-350k work you care about and want to do long term, working 25-40 hrs/wk (so plenty of time for other hobbies, fam, etc). In all 3 (a,b,c) you’re not allowed to have another income stream / side gig.
