Corp Dev - Sourcing and Strategy / Market Intelligence

Hey all - was curious if anyone has worked in a 'Sourcing and Strategy / Market Intellegince function' within a Corp Dev team? At a high level, my understanding is that the team focuses on top-of-funnel M&A work covering things like industry trends, competitive landscape, market share analysis, target analysis, etc. From what I have gathered the function does not focus on deal execution (i.e. M&A modeling and process work). This is a relatively new group to me so I would love to hear people's thoughts on:

  • Day to day work
  • Work / Life balance
  • Career Path / Progression
  • Skills to be successful
  • And any other pros / cons one should consider!

Thank you in advance!
