PIMCO Internal Sales Account Associate
I am currently a first year analyst at Citi in the Markets and Securities Services program. So far, the only thing keeping me here is the pay. My first-year rotation is on a securities services desk, and I find the work/business to be extremely boring and monotonous. Other than building some great excel skills thanks to my senior, I don't feel like I am learning much on desk that will be applicable for my future career (I don't want to stay in S&T more than 3 years max). Further, I have a pretty terrible relationship with my MD, which makes the job extremely stressful and unpleasant.
I have been applying to jobs since I am almost at the 1 year mark at Citi. Not too many opportunities are available at the moment due to Covid-19/WFH, but I have been applying to whatever I see that looks interesting.
This morning I received my first recruiter contact from someone at PIMCO offering me a phone call to discuss the internal sales Account Associate position. The position is in Austin, Texas. I am currently based out of NYC, but I am not too keen on staying here because I grew up in the NYC suburbs, and am kind of sick of the city/find it overrated. Does anyone know anything about this position? Would it be a mistake to leave my current role? Yes, I am unhappy with my current team, but I am due to rotate in Jan 2021, so should I just stick it out?
Appreciate any advice that anyone might be able to give me.
