Given the choice between an analyst at a large firm on the asset management side working on all property types in the headquarter office or a small firm on a lean team in acquisitions working on just a single property type, what would you take?
Feel like the acquisition is a better opportunity, but I would be the sole analyst working with 3-4 MD/VP. The people on the AM side are cool (feel like people on AM in general are more laid back, which I like) and there is a large class of analyst since its the HQ, I like having the option to go to someone to ask modeling questions / just having an analyst network. Job security feels safer on AM side.
Let's assume pay is same. Still very early in my career, not sure what I want to do.
