Grass always greener on the other side

Tell your sub-industry and job function and gripe about it here. For folks who might be looking into a new role and think it’ll be sunshine and daisies. Particularly curious of those in PM / ER.

I’ll start:

  1. Work in PE (middle market)
  2. Business Development
  3. Fun to learn / think about business models. Boring AF to come up with all sorts of creative ways to ask “please take our money” (80% of the job). Often involves having to get very familiarized with obscure industries and where the CEO went to school / what sports he likes etc.
