Transitioning from Multi-Manager Platform Fund to Long-Term Focused Value Shops?

So I recently went through the recruiting grind (currently 1st year IBD) and ended up getting an offer at a large, multi-manager platform (think Millennium, Point72, BAM, etc.)

Although I am tempted to take it and end the process, I've always considered myself a long-term, value guy. Since it'd be incredibly risky to turn it down (don't have anything else in pipeline), I was wondering if anyone had experience with the process of transitioning to a single-PM/long-term value shop from a multi-manager fund?

I have a feeling I won't be able to stand the short-term focus of the MM shops, and know if I accept it I will try transitioning to a long-term value fund down the road. Any input would be appreciated!
