Need some advice from the PE monkeys here...
I used to workd for a second tier Bank in M&A and went to do the MBA thing at a HSW school. The goal was to go into PE - got the internship but failed to transform it into a job unfortunately. On graduation, I tried to take the closest to PE - a job in the Financial Sponsors Group of a BB.
I did interviews in strat. consulting too however. And just now, I received an offer from a top tier consulting firm (one of the MBB).
I'm a bit confused on what to do now - the mix of banking and consulting is very unique a quite an edge for PE jobs, and consulting skills are really a nice to have. Should I renege the BB offer to go for consulting? Or should I just shut the f* up and be happy with the Sponsor Job?? I cant imagine staying in banking more than 2 years as I've had enough already on top of my 3 year stint as an analyst, and consulting really seems like a new cool thing to learn. I don't know if its worth reneging for that.
