Sr. tax analyst or tax analyst in industry?

Was hoping I could get some insight into a tax analyst or senior tax analyst in industry, mainly in the areas of fed/state tax return prep, ASC 740 prep, and income tax audit inquiries, etc..

Currently, I am corp tax senior who is about 6-12 months out from manager. However, im not seeing the benefit of staying in public if I am not shooting for partner. 

Was hoping someone had insight of how the transition might be in terms of workload, pay, poltics and overall going from revenue generator to overhead.

I am in the bay area and currently around the 80-90k pay range with bonus. Can I reasonably expect the same or more if I move to industry at a company big enough to have a tax department for their returns and quarterly/year end provisions?
