You're just saying that because you've only worked at no name places.

What, exactly, is a no name place?  I understand that you're probably 19 and don't really have any experience at all, but please explain to me why it matters that someone else has heard of the firm at which I work?  If I get paid well, work on interesting projects, and get carry at a company with a robust pipeline, why the fuck do I care if they're "prestigious"?  I'd like to start my own development company; according to you, I'm better off being a perpetual analyst at Related because of the name than I am owning my own shop and making real money, because no one will have heard of me.  How stupid can you be, to prioritize something merely so it looks good on a resume, instead of working somewhere you can build actual skills, experience, and make money?

Real estate as an industry is insanely fragmented, and because it requires sponsors to take actual risk (unlike banking, for example), there is more to winning/executing on deals than being the most prestigious firm.  You obviously can't understand that; I'd advise finding another line of work, because no one is going to give a shit about the prestige of where you work, they'll care about the quality of execution on what you were doing.
