Private Funds Group (PFG) vs. Private Credit (Venture Debt)

Currently have an offer for a private funds group (group does secondaries and PE fundraising) and for a venture debt company. The private funds group is at a BB (technically a boutique now, iykyk) and the venture debt firm is one of the market leaders. Not sure if it's better to try to rotate within the bank and move to IB (or a different group within AM) or if I should take the venture debt offer. I am interested in both VC and growth equity and I am really trying to consider what will have the best exit opps. I am not a big fan of the private funds group, but culture is great. Is it easy to rotate within a bank to an entirely diff group (i.e. IB --> AM)?
