Tiger cub vs ER

I know we've seen dozens of posts about if tiger cubs are dying or not, but I actually have offers and now need to decide what I'm going to do asap. The ER position is under an II ranked analyst at a non-BB firm, but still well respected. The tiger cub is also very well respected and in the range of 5-15 bn aum

My end goal is l/s equity investing, but given the recent implosions I'm not as certain about the longer term direction of that style of fundamental investing. Seems like redemptions aren't horrible, but lot of money is flowing toward MM/quant shops.

An important question is, is this one of the tiger cubs that is majorly imploding or is it one that seems to have faired a bit better? You're clearly not dumb because you've got the offers you do but I think its important to not put all the tiger cubs in one basket and look at the fund as an individual fund. Do you think their specific strategy works in the current environment?

Also while there is a lot of AUM flowing to MMs on aggregate, this ultimately is only a useful metric for those who aren't in pods I.e. management. This doesn't inherently reduce the risk of being in an individual pod.

I didn't think about the pods that way but that helps. This particular fund is down somewhere in the range of 15-25% but I don't have exact figures

Tiger Cub. It's easier to go to ER as a junior analyst/associate than the other around.

Doesnt it depend on the hf?
