Finance Associate .... --> in-house?

Postby Anonymous User » Mon Jan 22, 2018 9:50 pm

Large firm, first year transactional associate here. I'm not slotted into a group yet - I've done about half of my hours in M&A and about half of my hours in finance (mostly bank finance, lender side). I prefer the M&A stuff, but I think because of where the staffing needs are and where the business is coming from, I'm going to end up a finance associate.

My question is - can this lead to a reasonable array of in-house opportunities in a few years? Or is it not a great avenue for that? I know M&A folks tend to get the most in-house opportunities. How tough is it to go in-house if I get squeezed out of M&A at my firm and end up in finance?

Large market, not NY, if it matters.
