1st year REPE Analyst company decision advice

All of them are REPE.

  1. NYC 

position: mostly acquisition + a bit of AM works


Principal & MD: alumni + strong connection with school (all board members in school are strongly connected, so I thought it's important in terms of finding exit opp)

very small size company

  1. Atlanta

position: acquisition

The size of company is quite huge

  1. Miami

position: AM

the size is just mid, but the founders are really eager and aggressive to grow


If I want to exit and move to real estate banking (Wells Fargo, JP, etc) or big private equity (BX, Starwood, etc.),  which option is the best?

redever, what's your opinion? Comment below:

Only point I'll address (and maybe most important one).... NYC vs. Atlanta vs. Miami.....

Clearly, NYC has tons more institutional real estate HQ activity and thus jobs than Atlanta or Miami, but do you want to live/work long term in one of those cities (I mean, clearly you applied there)? I'd think I'd base on where you want to live/work given all the information given.

the company in NYC has invested ## so far. The team size is also small relative to the companies in Miami and Atlanta.


Tbh, I am not sure of which criteria I should consider first.

Not sure there is one criteria to use to evaluate this sort of choice..... basically you should pick what you think will make you most successful and be enjoyable/fulfilling. Even a 50 person firm is "small" by most standards, so not sure if size really is the differentiator here. If this "helps" none seem like a bad choice..... so just use your gut, the city/market difference still seems the most important to me tbh. It is easier to network move around in the city you are in than anywhere else. To that end, more jobs/firms in NYC than Atlanta or Miami (those are probably ties, maybe an edge to Atlanta for number of firms, Miami growing faster....).
