maybe it's just my industry, or perhaps more specifically, my company, but it seems many eople who started in FP&A or commercial finance roles actually move to other parts of the organization. sure, some go into M&A or strategy but i've seen many others move into somewhat different career paths including marketing, market research, etc.
anyone else notice this? i am finding that being involved in the budgeting and forecasting as well as just meeting with all of the teams, the FP&A roles can be somewhat all-encompassing and if you take the time to learn, you can really start to understand the thought processes of other teams.
feel free to chime in and call me a dummy, but just something i've observed.
