Was recently offered a SA position with their group in a top market (Think Chi/NYC/Dallas/LA). Wondering if this will be a worthwhile group to work for if CRE finance is my ultimate career goal. How do they stack up against other RE capital market groups such as JLL/CBRE/HFF/Eastdil/Berkadia etc? Ideally want to work with debt/equity teams over IS, but not closed off entirely.
Also, have no other offers atm but a few promising leads, specifically, a strong connection at JLL Capital Markets in Chicago and another as D.C. Neither have begun recruiting for summer 2019 so wondering if it's worth holding out for that if a spot with JLL ultimately became available.
