Ex-Consulant here that now works for a big name Real Estate Investment Trust. Saw on LinkedIn that EY has an America’s REIT Leader. Didn’t know that much attention was paid to the REIT space. Are there really consulting teams dedicated to the REIT space in the Big 4? Love working for a REIT and would love to jump back to consulting if there were teams dedicated to the industry.

Yes. I am aligned to REITs.

At KPMG, we have a REIT Lead but most of the work is Tax and Audit. There is some tech risk that piggybacks audit to ensure soundness of controls, etc. (primarily because most REITs are on home grown and antiquated systems). I have done a few op model assessments for REITs but typically leads to nowhere. From a systems perspective, REITs have a choice of Yardi, MRI, JDE or homegrown and (in my limited experience) there is very little appetite to invest in a system, hire consultants for implementation, etc.

Started in industry two weeks ago. No timesheets, 40 hour work weeks, and 30% more than what I was making previously. We use all B4 for everything, so it’s just managing their work and budgeting.

I’m a 2nd year civil litigation associate at a mid-sized firm in south Florida. My dream has always been to go in house but was dissuaded by law school professors telling me not to. I’m at a crossroads now because I’m OVER the billing, but my boss and direct team is quite possibly the most amazing and supportive group. My boss is always willing to let us work remote or take vacations. My question is, is the grass greener on the other side? Should I go in house now or wait another 3 years?
