No. Bonuses aren't guaranteed

Is there more opportunities and growth at the new place? Then yes.

Hell yes

I think better to get higher base

What if the bonus is more guaranteed vs the potential (never) bonus of today?

Then it sounds like an expected value question where you can try to weigh the likelihoods of your bonuses

If you have upward mobility then I would outline a success path and base pay increases along the way. But as we all know, bonuses no matter what they are, or historical payout performance, is still a bonus and never guaranteed. You could lose out in the long run if bonus money is the shortsighted goal.

If it’s a role u want go for it since base is same but bonus is higher - I only see up side

Back again with a question for the McKinsey folks! 1. Is it true that if you are internal (specifically PD) you are not eligible for a performance bonus? Just base and the 401K profit sharing? 2. I know McKinsey offers a percentage of your salary into a retirement fund. The recruiter painted it as a range (from 7-12%), but other fish in the main consulting bowl said it’s either 7 OR 12% (no in between) based off of if you’re client facing or internal - which is true?
