UX Designer Reviews

Q: What is it like working as an UX Designer?

UX Designer in Grinnell:
Pros:
Cons: The commute from Des Moines adds up. One of the perks of living in Des Moines is the short commute to many businesses and points of interest. Working in Grinnell mitigates that a lot.

UX Designer in Austin:
"Lots of opportunity, but competitive."
Pros: Lots of opportunities available. Large companies are moving here and the tech industry is booming.
Cons: High level of competition and everyone is moving here which might make it tougher to find jobs.

UX Designer in Petaluma:
"Math and Statistics skills would have helped a lot."
Study everything that you interact with and make notes. What works? What doesn't? What could be better/faster/more engaging?

UX Designer in Nashville:
"Engaging work problem solving."
Pros: Get to solve real world problems with design and still get to do visual design as well. I get to work with really smart people and engage with our user base frequently. Great flexibility with PTO and work from home.
Cons: Business objectives get prioritized over user/product experience which I think addresses short term issues only and does not set the product up for long-term, future success.

UX Designer in State College:
"My first year as a UX Designer."
Pros: I like the team I work with. Everyone is friendly and easy to work with. I look forward to seeing my team members every day and seeing what they bring to the table. I love seeing my designs out in the real world. It's very liberating to know that millions of people access our website and mobile website on a day to day basis. I feel like what I do makes an impact. It also shows that my company trusts my professional opinion. I am honored to have such a great position here, especially after recently graduating. I like the flexibility of my work environment. I have the option to remote into work, my commute is only 15 minutes, and I have unlimited sick days.
Cons: I wish I had more creative freedom. It's challenging to design by committee; it makes me feel like my professional opinion as a designer isn't as valued as it should be. I would like more vacation days. Travel is very important to me as my family is spread out all over the country.

UX Designer in New York:
"A great job for getting into technology."
Pros: Being able to see your designs come to life.
Cons: Being restricted by unnecessary decisions made by others who are just trying to save money.

UX Designer in Nashville:
"UX Designer."
Pros: New challenges. New learning. Design.
Cons: Long hours. Working in an uncollaborative environment.
