I’m general corporate and I enjoy it. Came from an international firm doing mostly M&A. Pace depends on what kind of work you take on.

Interviewed for a senior strategist role and as we were griping about how clients can be, I said “oh yeah well the dream job is to never work with clients again right?!” And the recruiter just got back to me that “the role requires client interaction so that’s a dealbreaker”.
