    lol appreciate the response but don't think product work is all that much better. You spend months to years on features and projects that just end up getting trashed as your company pivots or loses funding. I've worked on more products than I can name, and all I have to show for it is my linkedin resume and a couple of US design patents.

    I understand the constant burn and aggressive nature of agencies but I feel at least with that mentality things will actually get built.

    Maybe I'm just jaded and need to find the right product for my next place but not being stuck to one product and the ability to flex all of my design skills seem like something worth looking into

      Then you could consider leaving the startup bubble. Not all companies are operating on that model. Look for a company that operates on a sustainable business model and aims to improve their product instead of accumulating enough attention to get acquired.
