If it’s WLB balance you seek M&A is not the group for you

It’s the same everywhere basically.

WLB in M&A space ? Either you are kidding or you are a newbie.

Maybe an alternate question is which Corp Dev and M&A teams have the best comp and the most influence/impact in their orgs? Hours feel worse when it's for nought and poor pay

like

Definitely not big monoliths. Complex matrixed orgs, too many P&L owners to weave through, already established product and strategy teams to challenge everything you propose. Companies right on the verge of going unicorn, just a hair shy of 500-1000 employees, and just starting to get acquisitive by bringing on a handful of bolt ons in a short period of time are the best.

This feels like an oxymoron

Very interesting! Thanks.

I’m at a MM bank in Charlotte. WLB ebbs and flows. Some weeks it sucks. Some weeks it’s chill. This is definitely a job for people who like the constant stimulus. I’m ADHD and it’s been awesome to be involved in so many different deals at the same time.

Feel pretty good about my M&A WLB. Just depends on how you define it. Nature of the work involves grueling hours and not much separation of church and state, but again, depends on culture and what you’re looking for.

Try distributing that cash to the team instead of just at 1%

Currently in M&A tax. I have a decent wlb, no complaints.

Is anyone else feeling very uneasy about this rise in cancel culture? I think it’s a byproduct of my anxiety because I don’t have really controversial opinions or post polarizing things, but I lay awake at night wondering if someone will stumble upon a photo of my Halloween costume from middle school that was incidentally culturally appropriative and I’ll get fired. Seems like there are no second chances these days if someone feels offended.

Moved from US to Canada recently. Finding work culture in Can way different. Giving direct and straight feedback is almost a sin. I feel the real and rigor to walk an extra mile for the client is almost missing. Not sure if it's just time or if this is Canada way. Any quick tips?

Unpopular opinion. I’m a young woman of color. I think we’re all focusing on race when it comes to violence in America when the issue is actually with men. Men of all colors have been terrorizing America yet everyone is arguing about white supremacy.
