Some UX Slack channels were doing well for a while but I definitely don’t see as much traction there. Meetups obviously came and went. Even the portfolio sites like Dribbble and Behance don’t seem that same.

I’m feeling a bit stuck where I am, so I was wondering if anyone knew a good transition into an analytical role from retail banking?

I work for a company that boasts work life balance, and not working overtime which is a gross misalignment to how busy we are. It’s almost like it’s unwritten that everybody works overtime but the spoken narrative is completely different.

For instance, at my level I could easily tell my manager that what I have to do will require longer hours, but at the risk of looking incompetent
