Pros: great co-workers ( not management )
Cons: dishonesty, unrealistic timelines, extreme disorganization, unrealistic expectations, no grasp of reality, lying to clients, acts of obscure doings, lack of morals and ethics
As a UX Lead, do not expect to have much time to design, but you will be required to none the less. The UX Lead will be held responsible to do a mixture of jobs that are combined into one.
Those jobs include the following: UX Director, Project Manager, and Information Architect
This is what you will have to do, and you will have no choice, unless – more... to quit or be let go. More than likely you will setup meetings all day, facilitate them and then report back to a director that really doesn't understand good design or what that even means. It's even worse if you're a contractor.
Management and Leadership have no clue what their doing. Not just in UX but the entire company as a whole. From Marketing, to Tech, to different lines of business. If they did, they would realize how horrible their process is and change it.
Apparently a major change has not been initiated due to the laziness of management. They know what needs to be changed, but won't because they can't actually lock down a great form of working habits, usually because they don't really work themselves.
If you are a worker bee of any kind: Business Analyst, Content Writer, Marketing Strategist, Developer, Ui/UX Designer or anything else that does not involve a management title... please steer clear of this place, unless of course you wish to waste your time running in circles.
There is no amount of money that I would ever accept in order to do this job again, – less
