Credit Rating Agency from Bulge Bracket Credit Risk Reporting

Rank: Baboon | banana points 106

I am currently a Jr. Associate at a Bulge Bracket in a Risk Reporting role, the role is not what I am looking to do - I have passed Level 2 of the CFA exam (potentially L3 as well, waiting for score) and want to do something more analytical related to credit/finance. Thinking about a role in ratings at a top Credit Rating Agency - 50% higher pay but overall less opportunity for mobility compared to a BB I feel. Is this is a worthwhile step if I get the offer?

Surprised that the pay is higher. Usually ib poaches rating agency analysts for risk roles, so I would assume that risk would pay marginally more. But idk. Would choose credit ratings over risk reporting.
