Hey guys, requesting for some serious advice right now.

I've received offers to both an Investment Banking Analyst position at a Big 4 Accounting firm (PwC, Deloitte, KPMG, EY) for 55-60k including bonuses and a back-office position in private market risks for a major Canadian pension fund for 75k, with bonuses being highly unlikely. (All in CAD)

Which one would you choose, and why?

What do you want to be doing in 5 years? The Pension fund really pigeonholes you.
