Need some advise/discussion on this matter; if ya'll have some free time, please do comment and give me your insight.
I have received an offer to be an Analyst in this company's in-house M&A/corp dev. team. Right now, they have a director, who does everything, and he really needs an analyst that reports to him. The director reports to the CFO. Now, the company went downward after 2008. All execs took pay cuts, and the bottom line and cash was not great at all. However, since this earnings season, they have reported their first substantial profitable quarter, and it's huge. They are getting ready to acquire many other companies and are really growing (evident in their financials). They just got a round of term debt and have the capex in place to grow their operations even more.
Should I really consider this offer -- given that this may be the start/foundation of an entirely new company (they are also in the process of moving to a bigger and better HQ office)? Also, according to CapitalIQ, compensation has been trending up.
Also, in the near future, if I would want to go back to banking, how possible would that be?
