    I agree with Aaron. SV is the worst, I did my time there in the 90's and I can only imagine it's gotten worse.

    I make a good living working from home choosing which projects I want to work on. I tend towards medical applications and applications that are specific to high cognitive load users (traders, oil riggers and first responders). I see results and I know I have made life easier for some and hopefully, my designs have in some small way helped a person in distress.

    Don't get hung up on titles especially in UX, they change seasonally. I think I've had 5 or 6 over the last 23 years. I don't use product designer, it's misleading and conforming.

    Think about places like Chicago, Miami, Houston, Dallas, NYC, UX is in high demand in each of those cities you'll learn grow and find a place that isn't all about the next click funnel.
