I live in a emergent country with high growth expectation and i was a intern for 1 year in a top-tier IB boutique.
I just finished my university and received two analyst job offers from the biggest national PE fund of my country and from the biggest national VC fund of my country. The PE fund is 10x bigger than the VC fund and the teams have the same size. Both offers have very similar salary (i don't know anything about bonus).
Personally i think that the VC job is more interesting, and i would have to work for less hours, but in the other hand the PE job probably pays much better and has more prestige in my country, because the VC market is still really small.
If possible i would like to hear some advice of people who have worked in both fields, or have knowledge about this areas, to help me to make my final decision.
Thanks very much!
