Competing Offers: Structured Products Sales or CLO Structuring?!?!

Ok fellow Monkeys, need your help here! By a series of random events, tireless networking and sheer grit I've landed competing offers: Structured/Securitized Products Sales and CLO Structuring. Both are analyst roles at the same BB foreign bank. Please provide insights to weigh and compare; Compensation(initially and over time), exit ops, work/life balance and hours.

What would you do(or have you done)??

Thank you all in advance for your help!

CLOs are having a nice revival right now from what I hear. Possibly better for someone in that industry comment on. What do you mean by structured/securitized products? That could mean equity structured notes or MBS, v different. I would make the decision based on the team and the product. You must have some idea whether you like sales vs structuring better?

The sales role will be mostly Consumer ABS, CLO and CMBS and mostly new issue. I already have an idea for which I like better, but would be good to have some comp numbers to weigh in with.
