BlackRock PAG - or IB at bulge bracket?

I just recently got an offer from BlackRock at their Portfolio Analytics Group, and was wondering how the opportunity compares to IB at a bulge bracket. I really like the firm and its products, and I think it would be great to work with something that brings technology and finance together. However, the relationship driven nature of IB down the line sounds really attractive, and it's definitely something I would like to do. For those of you who have worked at PAG, what is it like on a day to day basis, growth opportunities, learning, and exit opps?
