It seems everyone wants to be an analyst and not a broker. Am I missing something?
A broker often makes over an analysts entire salary in one deal. It appears a good broker with a top 5 shop in most major markets is making 250-1,500,000 a year. Mediocre ones are still pulling over 100k. On the other hand analyst starts out at around 60k all in and maybe goes up to $140k all in if you are lucky but typically stays under 100k even at associate level (outside new york). True or am I under estimating analysts pay?
