Current CB Analyst at a BB (GS/BAML/MS type) regional office (Bos/Tor/Chi type) with an offer to join an elite boutique (Evercore/Moelis/HLHZ type) in LA as an IB Analyst.

Is this a no-brainer?

For context: joined ~2.5 months ago out of undergrad. Love the office. Would love to transfer internally to IB but don't want to risk that after a year or two. Not loving the CB work, breaking into IB is the goal. Location change is tough but i don't really care, would go anywhere for the right opportunity.

Too early to leave? Is the risk of internal transfer too high to pass up on this opportunity?
