    My blog has a few pillar posts, say like 3000 words per post. Should I add 'Table of Contents' for easy navigation? Or it'll hurt my overall bounce rate as the visitor will jump straight to the chapter he's looking for?

    Another question: will it anyhow hurt my onpage seo or ranking?

    Try it an monitor it....

    We don't know your blog, audience, niche, what colour your pubes are or anything else.

    Stuff like this has no right or wrong answer... you just need to go for it and measure the results.

    How would it hurt your bounce rate? - it would hurt your bounce rate even more if the visitor goes in and cant find what he was looking for straight away
    Why would it hurt your onpage SEO?

    In my opinion, you should definitely do it.
