What are some future trends you see for the state of UX design and design systems during the next decade? With the rise of design systems teams, component library maintanence, better documentation, quicker access to components, better design and dev handoff, I predict there will be a rise or a path to more job openings and responsibilities for enterprise in-house designers and devs to create a dedicated design system Figma plugin(s) for their company.

Went in for a position at a top medical device company. During the interview my male interviewer asked if my “directness” comes off to strong to the doctors? He then asked the same question twice in two different ways. I asked if he meant “can I dim my light”. He said ya. I just said I know how to be strategic when it comes to my deliverance with whom I’m speaking to. I felt his question was misogynistic and quite condescending truly. I’m a woman in outside sales with a type A personality.

Shared the good news with my Dad and at the end of the conversation went to high five him and said “six-figure club, you and me”.

PwC Toronto assurance: being offered a job as a transfer from the US. I’ll be transferring as a senior associate 1 (aka this is my promo year). I’ll be either tier 1 or 2 since I’m an easy promote here in New York. I was offered 61k CAD assuming I’m tier 3. They said they might adjust it if my rating comes in higher. What should I expect if I were either tier 1 or 2? Trying to minimize the salary reduction…

Has anyone else here had used Bloomberg CFA prep? Did you also have a negative experience? I want to get reimbursed and not use them for the 2&3 but they are holding strong right now they won’t reimburse
