Internal Audit vs Accounting (1 year in industry)

I graduated with my Masters last year, and got a job in industry with a multinational company. I've passed the CPA Exams and will be certified in a couple of months. I'd been working in Internal Audit, but was asked to help out in GL Accounting a couple of months ago. By boss has now asked me if I want to stay in GL Accounting or go back to Internal Audit. Any advice? Salary vs. job outlook vs. hours? Or are these both crapshoots and should I look into going into public accounting because the experience is just that worth it?

Any advice is greatly appreciated!
