Excellent work/life balance. Always. Best people (in terms of intelligence, capabilities, and attitude) I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with. HR and wellness are great. Lots of Pros hard to make a list. Fantastic view from the office as well (Chicago and NYC). Projects are huge brands and Fortune 500 companies, ranges from entertainment to finance. Lots of functional work. Full service agency so you get to interact with every discipline if you do choose to make friends with people or are amiable to get to know everyone. Cons, I suppose, is that the work isn’t always ..... creative. Which is just real life. All my UX peeps are happy. My developers peeps have a great time. Anything specific you want to know?

I have a friend who was a UX Director at Isobar. He ended up doing more project management than UX leadership.

Many deisgners come from short courses and transferred into design with little experience and progress quickly. It shows in both the craft and consulting

Isobar culture varies a lot by office. The CEO is somewhat recent and installed by the holding company, the founding CEOs are out. They are top heavy in some offices, which is making VPs nervous IMO, which trickles down to the accounts. Which means it is more political than it has been. Which means more who you know favoritism vs. What's your skill/talent/contribution. This is all in reference to Isobar US.

Open forum to share today’s successes, failures, chaos & support. See below: I’ll say it. I am sick of ppl ruining my day. i wish everyone was a bit more understanding when it comes to unforeseen problems & road blocks. ESPECIALLY when it comes delivery. I know we are all on edge rn- how could we not be? but I’ve had it with how rude and inhumane people are being to each other right now. I’m just trying to help. Why can’t we all be more flexible? (like their expected delivery date lmao)

Do you share salary with external recruiters (NOT in-house)? Commission-based = they’re motivated for you to get a high salary, but what are the general thoughts here? I’m talking to one later today

Has anyone successfully transitioned from sales management in beer/spirits industry in to cannabis? I’ve seen a few roles I’d be qualified for in the Chicago area at Canopy Growth Corp and Cresco but haven’t had much activity on my apps without connections/referrals. Appreciate advice and/or connecting me to the company!

I’ve accepted a consultant level role with Accenture in SF for $125K. If I were to move to say Atlanta in a year or two, should I expect the same high COL city salary to remain constant?

Would you take a role that is tasked with scaling internal processes for a growing tech company if the company had a stellar rep and benefits? Background more in strategy consulting but recruiter

So I just received an offer from another company and would like to tell my boss that I’ve been unhappy and received another offer. Ideally I’d like to stay and see some changes but I’m not sure if that will happen. Thoughts? Advice?

How would you feel if your firm hired another associate in your practice group at the beginning of COVID, you helped to train him/her, and fast forward 3 months and firm fires you for not being the right fit? You are a 4th year, been with the firm for 2. Bonuses are 2 months away.
