Product Designer Reviews

What is it like working as a Product Designer?

Product Designer in San Francisco:
"Product Designer."
Pros: Ability to pull together a team of managers, researchers and engineerings (plus designers like myself) to produce an amazing product that impacts people on a daily basis.
