It's as simple as...1. Do you have a path to coverage and an understanding of when that will happen with your DOR?

If you end up being the guy who's been a sell-side associate for 5-6+ years it's unlikely you ever get coverage, it's harder to lateral to a buy-side role because you've siloed yourself as a sell-side guy and this isn't a role that lends itself particularly well to many industry functions besides IR. Sticking around too long without career progression is only a bad thing.

By no means an expert on this, but the guys I know working on the sell-side are constantly under the pump and generally seem fairly stressed out. In contrast, friends on the buy side (at least LO AM) seem to have much better work life balance and are generally happier.
