Just go!! It’s a no-brainer. GTH out of consulting before it’s too late! Unless you are sure you’ll make partner. You always have the option to come back regardless!

Industry is often slower with more normal hours. You will pay for more food and travel since you won’t have points and expense, but overall life is amazing since you don’t have to get up at the ass crack of dawn to get a flight every week. Unless you are the type to miss that sort of thing. If the company is strong and has good upwards mobility then you can expect to be there for a while.

OP What LOS are you?

Coming from industry - I love consulting. It was monotony, crappy boss, yearly appraisal was more of bootlicking than performance. So consider these factors before you move

Can’t wait to leave consulting. Would rather take pay cut (which you are not), and have a chill life

I’m in a specialty group within advisory. Pay is significantly lower due to industry

P3, how long have you been in consulting? The negative symptoms you describe are far more prevalent in consulting than industry. All partners have bootlicked their way up! In fact, their topmost skill is “analingus”. And it is mandatory to be a moron as well!
