I work for a large (national level) consumer/commercial/retail bank. I started out of college in a very small/specialized (non-IB) BB analyst program, and then left at 13mo to join a later stage startup looking to hire sometime from my team with my skillset/experience (analytics &product strategy focused). I received a big title and comp boost when I did so (90k target to 150k target). My startup was then very shortly after acquired by my current firm, and that is how I ended up at ~165k for 2022.

My role is essentially to be the business analyst (albeit I am leveled as a manager) for a core BU function.This is not a role that is readily available and I absolutely lucked into my situation. If I was to leave my current role and look elsewhere, I would struggle to find something paying over ~125k all-in without switching over to consulting or banking (had both as options out of undergrad, albeit not at a MBB/BB).

Plan for now is to spend ~2 years at my current firm and then switch to MBA / MBB.

Alternatively maybe I'll switch over to tech at some point, as I took a number of CS classes at school (top CS target) and I spend a decent amount of time coding in my current role

Did you start in commercial banking straight out of undergrad?

Depends on your role, I am in sales, pre-COVID I actually traveled about 2 days a weeks, mainly east coast, as far west Texas/Chicago meeting client, product and business management don't travel and typical are more in the 50hrs/week range
