Real estate is niche and your exits will primarily be in real estate and maybe infra. Some people like that, some people have commitment issues and are addicted to optionality (see the millions of threads about "exit ops").

The MS RE group is an awesome group, great people, good deal flow, respectful people. You will be more limited in exit options to Real Estate PE, which is very different. Not necessarily bad, and you'll also be top of the list for REPE opportunities. But just know that you'd be positioning yourself for a career in REPE

What about transpo and tech

Transpo is solid, but it seems like they've been doing A LOT of business development work as opposed to working on IPOs/M&As/financings

Tech is decent, work on a fuck ton of IPOs

masterofmafia, what's your opinion? Comment below:

M&A Media & Comm are usually top 2 but very intense groups. Sponsors, GPUG also popular and better culturally from anecdotes. Other great groups include Transpo and Consumer. FIG and RE usually least desired and rest fall into the middle somewhere.

FIG less desired because people suck and long hours, and super niche. People don't choose RE because super niche / exit, but people awesome

Know nothing about the other two honestly but sponsors is sick. Great exits and they never work past midnight and are rarely on on weekends. You can expect 18 hours a day everyday less Saturday in MediaComm.

Agreed. Exits are stronger than M&A on a per capita basis
