    i currently have 3 direct reports in my job. I make a little bit of override commissions on what they do. Maybe 10-15k a year.

    A recruiter has approached me with a senior position. They will offer at least 20k more than my top end number now, sane benefits, same travel. But not realistic opportunity to be a manager anymore.
    What would you do?

    Really the only way to move up in line of work (IT Consulting) is to start managing teams and project management as well.
