Hi Manhattan review,
Could you please provide me some detail information on the big Real Estate companies(names, what percentage they recruit etc.) in US,recruiting from top 20 b-Schools out there...?
What is the average package for these firms for fresh top 20 b-Schools grads in US?

What is the reasonable and expected salary growth 3-5 years down the line with these firms?

How do your see the growth prospects of these firms and career growth with them as compared to big Consultancy firms? (If comparable to any extent at all...)

Much appreciate your feedback on this.

This is really a question that you should be addressing to career placement at your target schools.

In short, real estate recruiting really depends heavily upon the status of the real estate markets that these firms are active in. If the markets are depressed, then they will not be developing and probably will not have much need for new talent. Also, there are a few schools with premier real estate programs and more developers recruit at these schools -- like Wharton, Columbia, MIT, Anderson, Haas....

I cannot comment on the compensation packages offered as I do not work in this industry. I can say that I do have friends who do and there is very little job turnover in the past few years and most of these people have worked at the same firm for more than five years. Consulting is a much more fluid field and since the firms are larger and have many more practice areas, they usually recruit a lot more and more consistently.

Good luck.

Wharton and Anderson are some of the oldest and most established real estate programs out there. They are both well recognized by industry leaders and have amazing recruiting in this discipline.

Good luck.
