Recently received an offer for a sourcing analyst position at a recognized PE firm with >$15bn AUM. For context, I've only been on the desk at my LMM firm doing M&A for ~5 months. If my end goal is PE/Growth Equity, is this a blessing or a stupid idea? I know the traditional move is 2 years > associate but I genuinely liked the culture of the people I've met at the firm and they also mentioned a potential path from Analyst to Associate in ~3 yrs. I'm biased towards a yes but would value your input so I don't make a rash decision.
