I recommend you do what is best for your life and your family. The career impact (assuming you eventually leave public) will be minimal if you still have EY on your résumé.

Personally, advise against. Was happy, now I'm miserable. You might get a pay freeze or pay bump depending upon the market, but a small office is like a cliquey suburban high school. It seems like fewer spots at the top leads to less teaming and a more competitive spirit. Lack of resources is a problem everywhere, but fewer clients in a smaller market does mean that you have less of an opportunity for either diversification or specialty in an industry, if your market lacks one or the other. The process takes a while, start early.

Firm is giving an extra bonus this year. After taxes theyll be just about the amount of interest on my law school loans (so much interest it’s disgusting). Do I immediately use all of it to pay off that interest, pay off one of the loans in full and put the rest toward interest, invest some, or other? I have about 190K total (loans are my only debt) and am of the group that’s fine paying off slower overtime for more cash flow now but w/ interest so high I’m thinking paying itwould put me ahead?!

I went through a pretty rigorous interview process for a marketing project manager but ultimately wasn't given job.

How do I again the experience if I'm limited by the type of work we do?
