Can anyone shed some light on the potential differences between an acquisitions analyst role at a traditional PE shop vs. an analyst role at more fully-integrated developer (Related Cos., Hines, LPC)?
I'm looking to make the move from IS to either the principal or operator side and was wondering how the two roles varied (ie. day-to-day responsibilities, work/life, comp, deal exposure, autonomy etc.).
Is one more financial modeling intensive than the other, and what's the potential career trajectory for both?
Appreciate any insight!
