Default What should I do?

Hey guys, I currently work in Reinsurance Reserving (A bit over 1 year in) and it has been great (only it gets very very hectic once a year). I recently got offered a job in the Insurance Pricing segment same (Same/Similar Title) (Same company) and am not sure if I should take it. IE I don't know which is better for long term career prospects/pay. What do you guys think?

Figure out what you want to do long term, and figure out which position helps you get there the best way.

I don't really have any long term goals at the moment since I recently started my career.

I think I am doing well in Reserving, but don't know how much I would fair in pricing work since I don't have much experience in it.
