Wealth Management vs. Corporate Finance
I am a recent graduate (June 2021) and I have been working as a full time as a trading operations analyst in a small wealth management firm (think 2 billion AUM). It has been about two months, and there seems like there is no room to grow, at least from my perspective. I thought it would be the opposite since it was a small company that was growing quickly. I received a late offer for a FLP in a F500 company. The rotational program is set to start on February 2022 (in about 5 months give or take). I am kind of stuck in choosing career paths. Should I stay in the wealth management route and get pigeon holed into operation roles, or should I go intothe change to be in a FLP ?
In terms of salary, the wealth management firm is paying me 60k, while the FLP would be paying me 70K base salary with relocation aid help every 6 months. If I take the FLP I will have the chance to rotate every 6 months to a new location and position which is interesting. I want to take the position that leads to better growth opportunities in the future and a better salary. Also, how bad would it look it if I quit the wealth management firm after 8 months of only working there. Is it worth it burning the bridge?
