Career Advice - Commercial Real Estate (Asset Management Analyst)
I'm currently a CRE analystfor a relatively small company (~50 employees). I help manage the company as well as a portfolio of loans on the private side of the business. I work on a small team (>10 people in my department) and I am putting in a solid amount of hours. It is my first job out of college and I only have one non CRE internship on my resume. I am grateful for the experience I'm gaining and understand I'm not in a bad situation by any means, but I feel that I'm being underpaid for the work I'm doing. I make $58k base salary plus a 20% target bonus, so my total comp is around $70k (I'm also in New York but not NYC, if that matters). I'm about 6 months into the job and I am looking for career advice as to what I can do to increase my comp or other career paths I can take from here to increase my salary.
1- What other job opportunities can I pursue with a background in asset/? Is IB a stretch?
2- How long should I wait before considering other roles? 1 full year?
3- Is going back to school to get a Masters in RE worth it?
4- Am I an asshole who is making enough and should just take what I have?
Appreciate any input and feel free to rip into me if I have it good and I should just stay put and do my time at this company.
