    The funny thing is, the people on my team are genuinely some of the most caring people I've met. However, there is enormous pressure to release products faster. A lot of people on my team easily put in 60-70 hours a week, every week. So they fall back to what they're comfortable with, relying on intuition rather than observation. :-(

    But you are right. It might not be the right place for me. :-\

    Thank you. What you said in 1. and 2., that makes a lot of sense. I hadn't looked at it from that perspective. And I love what you said about user research being risk management. I simply had not approached UX research from that angle. But it might just help me sell the value of user research, where ever I go next.

    Wow. Thank you all for the incredibly thoughtful comments. I honestly wasn't expecting any comments on this post. I just needed to let it out so I could give form to what I was feeling.

    Thank you Wouter for your comment. What you said -- "user research is risk management" -- I've never thought of UX that way. But it makes so much sense.

    You guys rock. Seriously rock. Thank you for everything you've said.
