Should be pretty straight forward going from ER to corp dev, what’s the challenge?

Everyone wants deal experience first. Side note that while my MBA network is strong, my ER experience was not bulge bracket.

Can someone let me know the future prospects for a solution architect in Adobe . My main concern is that I would be limited to a adobe product suite. I currently have an offer from Adobe and a big Telecom company. In Adobe it is a pure solution architect role whereas in the other company the role is more like a technical architect, the CTC being offered is nearly same. I would give preference to Adobe but I am concerned about my career progression when and if I have to leave Adobe in future.

The MD I spoke to named a few other people he was going to have reach out, but haven’t heard from either of them. Just doesn’t feel like a normal process
