Does anyone have some sort of matrix or estimation chart that they can provide as something to provide to clients so they know how many hours of work it will take them? Looking for something I can provide to my team so they’ll can give it to their clients. Would be great if the matrix has everything from adjusting components to full blown redesign. Thanks in advance!

Ask gpt bruh


I've found getting as granular as number of hours is extremely difficult unless it's a very cookie-cutter type of task.

Client revisions can wreck all of your estimates.

The metric I've found more useful to focus on is the project span (aka turnaround time), typically measured in weeks.


That sounds like a risky idea. Until you can get a handle on the scope of the work (per project), you could be constantly underestimating any work. If anything, you need to reflect on your team's previous work to come up with something like that. What takes one designer 4 hours could take another designer 15 hours.


Wouldn't your team know best how long it will take them to do tasks?


Measure by product/project outcome? What is goal or objectives?
How many revisions?
You should charge based on the value and solutions you provide and their timeline, not sweat this granular stuff..

Look at the futur Chris Do for more on this concept

Someone already mentioned it. But to reiterate,

When using hourly, you’re punished for being good. You’re ridiculed for taking too long to earn your bread.

But if you master your craft and can do something great and fast, you can see how you’re going to be paid less. Which makes no sense.

So value based pricing is the way to go. Don’t charge by the hour if you can.

You set your rates based on your experience and skillset. Maybe a base price. And additional edits could be hourly if it makes sense.

Maybe it’s just normal Partner behavior and I should grow a thicker skin, but generally feel emotionally disconnected from him and that my portfolio of work is not integral, or is an afterthought, to the practice.

So just had my first Amazon interview interaction the other day and its BS. I got invited to take part in the interview process by first answering a bunch of situational/case study like problems and then had to complete this long work style assessment after which they requested a call/interview only to find out the comp for the role is way below my target. Why would you make people waste so much time on your stupid assessments before asking expected salary range?!


McKinsey & Company Hi everyone. Hope all is well.

Recently took the McKinsey & Company game (not sure if I have an interview yet but preparing nonetheless). It’s an entry level business analyst position and an entry level digital position and was wondering if anyone wanted to case prep with me. I’m willing to work on anyones time zone. (I’m located in Sydney, Australia).

Accenture Hi All, My lead just had a connect with the DU lead asking about hike for December. He got agitated saying that do not expect last year scenario this time, it's instruction from leadership. Compare your base package from Dec'21, it'll be some what 20%. And also he insisted that we are not even stopping and negotiating people who have put papers, whoever wants to leave can leave, we will manage. Accenture is however not firing anyone like Publicis Sapient

Is it considered bad etiquette or inflammatory to ask my company to not have me listed on the company’s website?
My company is asking us to put bios on our their website complete w/photos, “qualifications,” & interests. My job gives me an entry level job title but I do so much more for the company than what my title implies and am poorly compensated. Since I also do freelance work and consulting I don’t want potential clients to see my lower job title & hurt my personal branding. Bad idea 2 ask?

Hi everyone. English is my second language. I understand the language, I can write relatively well, but I struggle when speaking. I'm not at all an elegant speaker. I sound so un-smart when I speak during meetings 🥺

Impromptu speaking is a nightmare. I struggle to find the right words for even the simplest things. I struggle to translate my thoughts into words.

I'm looking for advice on how to improve, or even book and course recommendations on how to become more articulate.

If you working with a micro management style ux lead who want to micro manage all the work you are doing, he wants you do a lot extra work you disagree with, he wants to see all as much as explorations even you knew the results when you run out time for the sprint.

End of sprint he jumped in and throw more work for you that you not aware from beginning, how you handled it?


(1/2) Did she steal my work? I was a creative designer for an e-comm company last year. While I was there I hand drew a digital illustration for a package design assignment. They ended up repurposing it for a print on a dress. I haven’t added it to my portfolio yet, but I just came across my illustration on a portfolio. The girl who replaced me after I quit took my line work from the illustration and slapped their logo in the middle and put it on her portfolio as her work for the brand.

What is a good salary expectation for an entry level product designer? US based - NYC*
I’ce checked out and glassdoor/indeed but just curious to hear from people here because online has a wide range


*recent graduate* Whenever I ask an employer why I didn’t get the job or get to the second step in the interview process, they never respond. So, I’m assuming my lack of experience (I never did an internship in school🤦‍♀️ ) or portfolio is the problem.


I currently work on a B2B (SaaS) product that has never ending things to be fixing and building which overall is great but the company isn’t doing that well and I feel really burnt out from being the only designer with no help. I’ve been thinking of leaving and many job openings are in more B2C spaces.

For those of you who work in UX/product design for e-commerce or B2C companies, do you find you have enough variety in your work to keep you engaged daily and do you like it?
