is your intuition giving you a signal at all? Does either feel right? Hippie question for sure, but that can be a useful indicator.

All else equal, it's better to be closer to the money.

Being the quant guy in a fundamental shop is a good entry point if you can't be the quant guy in a quant shop.

It's a good trade to be quant in a fundamental shop if you're the one eyed king in the land of the blind, bad if you're the rented nerd.

Often better exits come with named firms. It can be tough to find a gig after working at a defunct hedge fund named for some street on Nantucket.

This was the main thought. It doesn't seem that the quant is the trader's bitch, based on what I saw. But, it also didn't mean that you're the king either. Usually this type of scenario is fulfilled by a fundamental firm hiring an experienced tech data scientist/quant at a quant shop, no?

Anyhow, I have enough information to make a decision now. Thanks everyone.
