Back Office PE vs Front Office Boutique IB
So I have been working in valuation (primarily divorce and shareholder dispute related work) for 3 years now and decided to leave for more money given how hot the job market is right now. I have an offer fromfor a valuation job, which is mostly a quarterly compliance oriented position. I hate the idea of this job but it may open the door to private equity at a decent firm. I also have an offer from a boutique IB shop specialized in insurance. Pay is about the same, but GTCR has higher base with a lower bonus target. My question is, which sounds more appealing at first glance? Also, what are the odds I get stuck in the back office at GTCR and have trouble shifting to a PE Associate roll?
