I did. Spent 2.5yrs in a TMT IBD group before going into a Corp dev role at a tech-services firm. Made the change because of looking to gain some strategy/ops insights as well as better WLB. Top pro is WLB and lower level of stress. Top con is PAY.

Out of curiosity what was the rough pay cut you had to take? And what did the hours range from for a regular vs busy week?
