Possible. Not generally a good idea. Very hard to be successful as a lateral hire that high up. Also, the difference in comp is small once you’re a partner. Source: was an MBB partner, now a PwC partner, make more here.

Why doe?

Walking away from the internal network you’ve built to get to SM/D seems ill advised

Then a diff agency asked me to apply for a role that pays a lot more but the work sounds so boring. Do I follow the money or do I keep doing work I like while feeling undervalued?

Suggestions for handling a peer who constantly uses their years of experience to curtail discussions? Both of us are SM’s leading teams within the same Market so we talk often.
