I’ve seen this scenario play out especially in corporate contexts specifically with new or junior designers who don’t fully understand/appreciate their role in enterprise (internal) product development. “UX/UI” has been sold to them (whether through social media, the industry, or bootcamps), and so when they start their careers in this type of environment, some are woefully disappointed at what UX work actually entails. I feel like this is a trend and is a threat to the UX profession… Are we attracting the wrong people (motivations, aptitude, professional goals)? How might this impact team member attrition?
