Would you 'go back' to working at a design agency?

    Definitely not.

    Not because the culture isn't that great, neither the salary &cie, put mostly because I could not follow a project after it was launch, like it has always been a one-shot project then you move on.

    As a UX/Product Designer, I like to get datas and feedback from the stuff I made to know what was performing or not and improve it, or at least knowing it so I could make it different on a next project.

    That being said, there is a lot more UX Agency now than 4 years ago when I worked whitin an agency, so maybe that would be different.

    But now, after having the chance to work for Microsoft and Match/Meetic/Tinder, I don't think I would go back in an agency. :)

      Totally right, it kills me to work on something for 1-3months and let it go just like that. It almost feels as if I haven't gained anything.

      I've been fortunate to work with close clients on continuous projects ... this doesn't only allow me to improve on previous version (and experience) but also see/monitor how the value of my work is being used.
