Corporate / Business Development Exits
I'm around 1 year into a PE stint, and am getting a sense that from a work-life balance perspective this is not the job for me long term. I don't anticipate wanting to jump to another PE firm afterwards. Beyond more PE, it seems like a somewhat typical exit afterwards is corporate / business development and strategy roles (and to a lesser extent, project management). For context, I came from consulting.
Has anyone here moved to those roles that can speak to them? I'm trying to get a sense for a) how common these exits are / how accessible these roles might be, b) how does compensation compare, and how is this segmented between base / equity, and c) how day-to-day life compares and if improved WLB is realistic. Any other relevant information would be appreciated.
I would like somewhat comparable pay, but recognize that the improved WLB comes at a cost in pay and would accept that. I'd love a 9-5/9-6 with some greater flexibility overall.
