How common is it to take a pay cut upon exiting MBB, given how the comp trajectory is so fast/high there?

MBB/ S&O 🐠 in Corp. Finance practices - what kind of work do you do? (sample projects, etc.) Who typically buys your projects?
About to be manager level at MBB, and pretty miserable. I have about 500k in investments, 350k of which are in Roth accounts. If I just want to have 200k plus in retirement income inflation adjusted and make the jump to industry for a ~250k exit, can I retire by 50?
I do not have the resume for MBB, but want to do strategy work. What firms should I be targeting? I have been thinking Accenture Strat or Strategy& but have heard they do not hire laterally. Thoughts?

Can someone help me calculate the differences in a SEP IRA with a lower base pay vs. a higher base with 401k pre-tax contributions? Employer pays the SEP but I figure if I got a higher base and paid into the 401k myself I’d still get the tax benefit.

My husband & I pool our full incomes into joint checking/savings accounts for everything. We each take a modest monthly personal “allowance” into separate personal accounts, to spend on whatever frivolous things we want. I’m new to consulting & to bonuses… curious for advice on how to approach bonuses? (He doesn’t get bonuses in his work.) I definitely want to contribute towards our joint savings (love seeing that number go up!), but I’d also love to take a chunk of my bonus to spend on myself.
Please stop asking random people(us) about expected hikes based on rating. We all can give you some numbers based in experience, information l, hearsay etc etc. The actual number that matters to you and that holds true will be available to you on 26th May.
Have patience. World is not going to end before that. You will receive letter with your hike %age I it and no one can stop you from reading it.
So please stop with all these posts. A humble request! 🙏
