Went into Corp strat. Pay scalability is still solid (200-350+ all in) but there’s a ceiling that you need to pivot into a leadership role elsewhere in the company (think leading a business unit or group). Many companies use Corp strat as a talent incubator

Not much man... Have not seen people in that practice in my previous firm have much luck with corp dev / corp strategy. Some with functional specialty (eg IT or HR diligence) will go to those functions. Some larger acquisitive companies have in house integration teams which is an option, or PMO org

Just about any firm that is an aggressive acquirer will have an internal function to do M&A integration and transformation.

Exit interviews, who has access to them? ACN says it's kept within HR and if managers were to ask for them, they'll get turned away. Is that so? Can MD/leadership's from your practice see them?

Why shouldn’t we let companies fail who used all of their liquidity for stock buy backs to boost executive compensation and short term shareholder wealth? Shouldn’t we let companies fail so a new generation can start with fewer barriers to entry.
