Career in MBS / CMBS ?

Does anyone work as a CMBS / MBS trader? Any insight on a career in this vertical would be appreciated? Do you find the work interesting? I come from a traditional real estate acquisitions background but am fairly intrigued by the space. Is there a lot of room for growth? Is comp strong? Is it a small space? Why don't more people head this route? Thoughts on which companies to pursue (aside from the banks) that have large CMBS operations? Thinking Cerberus, KKR? Any and all info is appreciated ?
