I've narrowed my choices down to two firms. The first is a Vault 100 firm located in a secondary market. It is not the home office, but is probably the second most influential office of the firm.
The second is a mid-sized office (under 100) of a Vault 50 firm, located in a primary market.
Both firms have the practice areas I'm interested in, and I'm comfortable with both cities. I'm very tempted to go with the secondary market, mainly because I really enjoyed the people at the office, but I keep having doubts about whether it is a dumb career move, and whether I'd be limiting my future options.
Any thoughts about taking a secondary market over primary? Thanks in advance.
