I'm an undergrad choosing between an offer from a prestiguous hedge fund operations position and bulge bracket analyst role. The offer compensation is roughly the same, but what about future opportunities? I know for a bulge bracket ibank I have a clear career path leading to MBA to associate and above. But what about the hedge fund? The company is notoriously hard to get into, but how hard is it to move up from operations back office to higher positions?
Thanks a lot for your help. If you can provide more detailed answers given the company's names, send me an email at [email protected]. Thanks again for your time.
