    'Operations - Learn how do we make transactions happen for our clients.'

    'Corporate - Learn how we look after the wellbeing of the bank itself'

    'Technology - Lear how do we create and maintain solutions for ourselves and our clients'

    'Finance - Learn how we run our accounts'

    those are support functions, but are all relatively well paid

    revenue generating functions include:

    investment banking, capital markets (DCM, ECM, LevFin), sales and trading and research

    This is irrelevant to this thread, but since you've had lots of personal experience at investment banks, what are your thoughts on investment/asset management?

    Research is revenue generating?

    I tried, looked up all the separate divisions on JP Morgan's website, but I didn't realise that the ones I listed were not part of IB. I believed that all of those divisions were constituent parts of IB, and one of them was the IB.

    I'm pretty ignorant you know.

    None of them are front office. However, I wouldn't rule these jobs out because they are still well paid and there can be a small chance of you being promtoed into front office, e.g. if you're in market risk you could get promoted into trading or strategy, but it's a low chance.
