Corporate banking is always a difficult one in terms of WLB. The workday is never over, whether it's nights, weekends, holidays, or vacations. If you're looking for balance, corporate banking may not be for you.

I work in what I would consider corporate banking, but also could be commercial banking? Either way, I underwrite commercial loans. Not sure if that’s what you’re referring to, or if it would be insightful?

I've been at Citi and BofA. There were times at both that wlb was difficult because of busy periods, but BofA has been much better.

Thanks for responses for reference I am deciding between a switch to MM IB or corporate banking at a BB, does anyone have insight on the general WLB comparison? I have heard CB is much less but based on some of these answers I could be getting poor info

MM IB is going to be better than Corporate by a lot

Wlb...in banking? I didn't know that was a thing. I feel like all my friends in banking say there is no wlb.
