I'm fortunate enough to receive two offers coming out of undergrad, but need help with the decision. Both offers are in APAC.
Offer 1: Bain&Co - Associate Consultant
Pros: Well-designed training, global network, wide exposure in terms of functions & industries, Travel (if possible, coming straight out of undergrad so still acceptable)
Cons: Can't see impact, might be staffed on "bad" projects, pay, hours 60-80/week
Offer 2: $8B USD Growth Equity - Portfolio Ops Analyst (I have been interning there for 4 months now)
Pros: Highly flexible in terms of learning (worked on various projects for their portfolio comps), C-suite exposure - reporting directly to multiple 1B+ valuation company C-suite officer/ fund partners, team is extremely lean and top heavy, our partners directly control the portfolio comps as C-suite officers, Pay - starting offer is 20% higher than Bain with up to 50% performance bonus. Potential equity options as career progress, Hours ~60/week so pretty chill in general
Cons: No peers, less structured training program, limited industries compared to Bain (TMT, Healthcare, Real Estate, New Media)
My long term goal is C-suite at unicorn or entrepreneurship, but don't have a specific industry preference yet. Had been working towards the MBB trophy for a long time, but never wanted to stay in consulting long term. MBA is a potential consideration. Currently operating an e-commerce business with friends, would prefer to keep working on it with 5-10hr commitment per week. Thank you!
TLDR: Bain vs Growth Equity Ops straight out of undergrad, which one should I choose?
