Questions about Corp Dev post-banking
Hi there, I was hoping anyone who exited to Corp Dev could help answer some questions for me.
What is corp dev? Like what do you actually do on a day to day basis and how does that compare to banking?
How did you land a corp dev job? Several headhunters mentioned it to me during OCR - did you get it through one of them or through LinkedIn/online? I just don’t know where to start searching.
What is the typical salary range for a large company? I’ve heard so many different figures thrown around ($100k, $250k, etc.). What would you expect someone with 1 year of banking experience to make?
Are you happy? Are you glad that you made the switch out of banking, and do you regret your decision at all? Do you wish you did PE? I’ve worked at smaller corporate companies and while I was happier, I also felt like the people I worked with were not as motivated/sharp, which made me feel complacent/like I could be doing more with my life.
