Too reluctant to go with a junior offer. Please help
It's kind of ironic, I spent the past 3 years trying to get here and now it's just too uneventful
I got a full-time offer from a large AM (Cap group, T.Rowe,). Salary is amazing, work will teach me a lot. On the other hand I also have an offer from a sell-side Equity group
I'm too hesitant to get in, because I know they'll throw me out in a few years, most likely. Keep in mind I passed all CFA exams and attended a MSc (I'm London based), so a B-school exit will be too tedious and fucking too much.
The people in the AM company are so down to earth and extremely helpful. For what it's worth, a director spent a week regularly chatting with me and teaching me everything about the sector I'm assigned to. He keeps referencing the CFA curriculum and told me explicitly, but jokingly "the only good associate is a CFA associate." Bit cringe but it made me feel valued a lot
How would you deal with this uncertainty? What is the best exit opportunity that doesn't require B-school again?
