A few years ago, I co-founded a company right out of grad school. I took on the role of leading product and design. Design had always been a passion of mine, and throughout the preceding 5 or so years, I had taught myself enough ux/ui/visual design to get by. We hit a ton of struggles along the way with traction, leaving us capital and resource-constrained most of the time, which means I continued (and continue) to wear a ton of hats day-to-day: product strategy, management, user research, ux/ui/visual/package design.
The company is finally seeing some traction, and the team is growing, which I'd be happy about if not for a) the toxic, high-stress culture this place has developed, b) the lack of commitment to good product/design by other management, c) my lack of mentor, career/team growth, and d) my feeling incredibly burnt out.
So I think it's time for me to move on. But here's my concern: I'm a design generalist who's led product/design as a solo-player for years. I'm not an expert in any one domain, I haven't led a team of 10+, I haven't worked anywhere with a ton of brand equity or at a large company where I got to learn the "ropes." I enjoy spending hours in Sketch getting things to look just right, but I also enjoy having high-level influence on product/creative direction. I feel like I have a really odd configuration of strengths & weaknesses that isn't terribly marketable, particularly to a larger company with some brand recognition, which is where I feel I should be for the next year or two to recuperate.
Any insight/guidance you have would be really appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
