2nd year Big 4 consultant interviewing for a 2 year analyst program at a private investment/private equity firm. Role at first will be split 40-40-20 between Operations, Investor Relations, and Investment Team. Being marketed to be as a "rotation" Good exit?

Concerned I'd get "stuck" on portfolio monitoring
