Two Different Paths: RBC DCM vs JPM PubFIn

Being early on in the career, and weighing these two opportunities, which would you go for?

Both offer a nice lateral move, considering I'm currently doing credit related work (i.e. S&P). Not particularly worried about the "traditional" type of exits, as I figure once I'm in either group, I'd hope to be in it for the long run. RBC seems more interesting because there's a restructuring aspect to this particular group, while the public finance platform at JPM is consistency at the top of the municipal league tables and offers it own set of positive attributes.

Basically I'm torn and wanted to hear some outside perspective/thoughts. Thanks in advance.
