less hours, less work v. something else

I'm really interested in Lev Fin, but the company I'm joining has a small group. I heard they don't work as much, meaning less bonus. Less money doesn't bother me as much as my exit opps or my opportunities to move up. The firm has an otherwise established platform so I'm wondering if its a chance to shine on a small team.

Yeah, without a sense of where you work it is difficult to tell what opportunities you will have entree to. However, if you are a quality analyst wherever you are, you will have the ability to make moves. It is very annoying to have everyone constantly talking about exit opps when they don't even know how difficult the job is and what they are going to have to go through. Wait till you start working and you will quickly see that PE / HF jobs are not the silver bullet you thought they were... especially in this economy. Banking is tough, PE is tough, HF jobs are tough... at the end of the day you can only take care of being a quality analyst and then you let the chips fall where they may...
