Long time reader, first time poster- hoping you all (coming from a variety of different backgrounds), could give me some advice. I graduated from a target school with a mediocre GPA (3.2) but some solid internships under my belt (wealth management, hedge fund, and M&A SA at a pretty large bank). Didn't want to do sell-side after grad, and sought buyside opportunities instead...wasn't easy but landed a role at a small multi-family office. I'm the only analyst on the team, report directly to the CIO and got a lot of responsibilities early on. I do everything from looking at individual equities to PE/investments to angel/seed stage stuff. All told, it's a pretty good gig (lifestyle and comp are pretty good considering the role). CIO is happy with my work, and is planning on giving me an equity stake in the firm by the end of this year. What's more, would get a lot of support with MBA admissions... All happened pretty quickly, and it's exciting, but I know too this means I'll be committed to this for some time...
Which brings me to my dilemma- I'm really wondering if I should stay on. While I love what I do, I worry about the future, whether the firm will experience growth, whether I'm learning enough etc. Have considered other options (larger family office, pension/endowment space, maybe even try and get into banking and see what buy-side opportunities it unlocks from there), but haven't made any action so far. Ultimately though, given how much I love my current job, and the track it's putting me on, I wonder whether I may be looking a gift horse in the mouth/ being way too noncommittal...If I'm being to vague with anything, feel free to ask questions, but ultimately, would love to know, what would you do in this position? Any insights you guys could provide would be great.
