Another Confused Supervisor

Similar situation as a previous supervisor’s post.

Audit Supervisor at a midsized firm NY Metro (1 office, 15 partners, 80 professionals between $20-30M in revenue), expecting an offer for a Big 4 manager position. 

I’ve put in time at the Big 4 at the associate level (left for to finish MBA and had kids.) Now I’m wondering if I should return to big 4 to get at least 1 year of manager experience under my belt to use as a spring board. 

I mean all in all, I have it pretty good at my current firm; come and go as I please (no busy season due to working in the project driven consulting practice) compensation is decent, $100k when bonus is included ( we all know how far $100K goes in the NY Metro area).    Partners here make somewhere between $200-300K per our leadership program materials; Managing Partner is right around $650k (hearsay).  However, I worry about the future. I feel as though I could be possibly selling myself and family short by not achieving on a higher level.  How can I honestly tell my kids to always try their best and surround themselves with the best people when I feel that I’m not doing the same?
