As UXers look ahead in their careers, one common question they ask themselves is whether or not they should consider a management path or climb the ranks as an individual contributor. Like most things in UX, it depends…

Hear the experience of UXers at x company who have explored both paths, and are a mix of ICs and managers today. They’ll share their divergent experiences as well as considerations for why you might choose one path or the other based on personal and organizational dynamics.

In this panel discussion, we’ll cover:
  • What questions to consider in making this decision
  • Tradeoffs in management and individual contributor tracks
  • The role of player/coach
  • Evaluating your feelings about your current role
  • How pivoting may be the best thing for your career
