Starwood Capital (Comp, Reputation(vsBrookfield), future carry)

I am at the final round for the  Acquision analyst at Starwood. I have a questions regarding:
1. How is the Comp look like for REPE such as BX, SW, Carlyle etc.. (Analyst, Associate, VP, Director, MD)

  1. Is starwood highly regarded in the industry? I know Starwood is really good but how about comparison between REPEs such as Brookfiled, Carlyle OaTree, KKR etc.. (exclusded BX cuz obviously BX is kinda top)

  2. Related to first question, how much money I can make possibly in the future?  I know vanilla PE seniors make $millions with carry, and REPE pays slightly less than vanilla PEs & IBs. However, how about senior level, is REPE still pays less than IB seniors?

I know Starwood 1st year analyst comp is around 190k, was told from a buddy on Acquisitions/REPE. No clue how carry structure works later on as you move up.

On top of that, incoming analysts need to stop worrying about VP-MD comp. Once you reach those levels, your comp reflects what you bring to the firm, not just a one size fits all.
