Debt & Equity Analyst vs. Institutional I/S vs. Acquisition Analyst
Interviewing and applying for Debt/Equity Team, Investment Sales Team, and several Acquisition Analyst positions. I am about to receive an offer from a Value-Add Acquisition firm that specializes in industrial/flex/office conversion to Life Science and Creative Office use. They are financed by a multi-billion dollar consulting firm and are looking to deploy $500,000,000+ in acquisitions over next 24 months. There's only 5 principals that represent the "CRE Investment Arm" of the billion dollar consulating firm that backs the fund. The pay will be good but I will only get exposure to office/covered land acquisition, development/stabilization/lease-up, then disposition. Their business model is acquire, hold 3-5 Years, Redevelop/Lease,/Stabilize, Sale for 1.5x+.
I am also on my last interview round (Debt & I/S Analyst), but they won't have an opening for two more months. I connected with a managing director. I've had in-person interviews with 4 people on his team and they have acknowledged that everyone gave me great feedback.
Seems promising, should I wait or accept the acquisitions analyst role? I know how competitive and can easily be over-hired by a client's son, etc lol..
