User Experience Designer in Montréal:
Pros: Freedom to learn. Great partners and missions.
Cons: No mentor on my field. High stake project with too many stakeholders.

User Experience Designer in Montréal:
"On Title, Multiple Job."
Pros: Great position if you want to push things forward. Designers get front seats on the product development cycle and contribute a great deal to the shape and function of the project.
Cons: Recent profession. Because of this, precise role and tasks vary from greatly from one context to another.

User Experience Designer in Montreal:
"It Goes Way Beyond the End User."
To be able to actually engage in UX, you need to do a lot more than just worry about the end user. You need to learn how to be an UX advocate and spread the 'UX way' pretty much every day. It's common to see companies hiring UX Designers to do exactly the same as Graphic Designers. Most people don't understand exactly what your responsibilities are and it's up to you to teach them.
