Working in lending and earning a solid $200k+ stock for 45 hour weeks at an institutional shop. 3% raises. It is underwriting with very little upside to be an originator. My background is in sourcing and executing transactions within family offices. I hate being the background, and hate being treated as nothing but a 'resource' by the originators.
Evaluating several offers. All are ~$90-100k base with commissions expected to get you to $200-400k (year 1 vs year 3). None are institutional - think almost hard money but with $400MM - $2B funds.
On one hand, I do not feel like I am giving up much as I am confident I can close at least some business. On the other, commission structure with lower base just sounds.... awkward for some reason.
Anyone else make the jump? How did it go?
