First post here, and I just wanted to start off by thanking everyone active here in these forums for the highly valued insights you all have provided me. Hopefully, I will one day be able to give back to this forum as well.
I have succeeded to put myself in a quite peculiar situation. After having completed an internship at one of the top consulting firms and another internship at one of the biggest firms in the Infra PE space, I have now ended up with a full-time offer from both firms. As my long-term goal is to break into the PE-industry, I am wondering what offer I should accept with regards to the ease of transitioning into PE later on. Both with regards to what position would prepare me the best, skills-wise, for a PE-job, but also with regards to the name/brand of the firm. In my case, I believe the top consulting firm would constitute a "heavier" name/brand on my CV. Although, I do not know how much this matters at all and if it even is relevant.
I am unsure about how I should prioritize and I am also fully aware of that my personality and personal fit with the firm in many times will be a decisive factor. Although, there ought to be some general consensus here (or not) of what path is the best for breaking into PE.
Thank you very much. All answers and insights are deeply appreciated!
