Hi,

I am a qualitative primary researcher with 3 years of experience on agency side. Given thr hectic work culture of agencies, I've already reached burnout and am seeking a change in my career path.

Can anyone recommend a career path that can offer some level of work life balance?

Is UI/UX research a good path to explore?

Yes - study UX research online. Speak to some mentors online via LinkedIn they can help you work on your skills (identifying mentors is easy, they put UXR mentors in their profiles). Jumping from MR to UXR is easy and doable.

That is helpful, thank you.

Besides UI/UX, I was also wondering to explore SAAS based B2B sales or some other role?

I have a Btech Computer Science background, but did my MBA right after that so don't really have any exp in IT. Do you think it will be possible and worth it?

AITA? I’m a 8th year attorney working at a boutique PI firm, resolving around $30m-$40 million a year. Average case value is above $1m.

AITA to ask the partner for some kind of value threshold to let me focus on those larger cases? There are younger associates at the firm who would love the work.

How do I deal with a colleague who keeps delegating his work to me? He tells me to confirm data when he has the same data set as I do.

He also makes me reach out to people below his level. He leaves me out when talking with people above his level. Where's the line between being helpful vs being used?
