I've recently received an offer from a small REIT. Given the team is small, this role will be covering basically everything - UW, AM, due diligence, reporting, etc.
The comp isn't ideal - about 20k less than my current role. I am currently working in Big4 valuation. I have been actively looking for quite some time. I've realized how hard it is to transition from valuation to a buyside front office role.
Part of me wants to take this offer - it is still a buyside front-office ish role. Part of me wants to keep looking - maybe I will be able to get into a more prestigious/bigger REPE (I've had a few final rounds for different buyside front office openings; however, this is my first offer).
Please let me know your opinions/recommendations.
