Left an in house UX job a few months ago after nearly five years and see the ‘updated’ requisition for backfill was turned into a junior role (used to be Sr. Manager). Why don’t companies see the value of design leadership?! It totally reinforced that going back agency side was the right move. I’m baffled so many folks view in house as this amazing sanctuary, I had the opposite experience.

Tech dollars and benefits talking, which are drying or dried up. In-house is overrated. This was always a trend that would implode. Plus media has a way of hyping, sheep have a way of taking things to the extreme. Just look at the recent "full remote" thing.

Thank you! It also makes sense, leadership never really saw the net worth of the role—wanted more cogs in the wheel vs. strategic and servant leaders.

That’s not uncommon to replace the pipeline with more junior talent to give them room to grow.

Hi all - I’m working as a Jr AE at a remote agency. Before full-time at this agency, I interned there for 2 years and often did pro-bono work. I love my company so much, but I often feel stuck when it comes to salary and growth. The salary is minimum wage and every time I ask about a raise they agree I need one but never get around to it. Today, I was offered a position at another agency as a remote AE with more than double my current salary. I didn’t seek this job out but don’t know what to do.
