Floydimus5743371dMujhe bhi individual contributor rehna hai aur naa ki management me ghusna hai.
Trying my best to ignore interviews and management role.
shivam-singh4071d@Floydian The thing is, I got promoted internally (my lead left for his own startup, and I was asked to step in ). It is kinda unavoidable when you stay with a company for too long.
Hazarth52871dIm in the exactly same boat as you. I can get barely anything done because theres always someone that needs to confirm something or ask a technical question. And as a guy with a lot of experience I love to help others and explain why I think something should be done some way, or why the previous author designed the code the way he did and such... I actually started to look more into automation and optimizing my workspace and IDE so I can get a lot done in less time, cause at this point Im just barely delivering. I do sometimes hate it too. But not too long ago I found a few really nice posts on devRant about a guy that got a thank you message from one of his juniors iirc and I though "I want that... I want someone to be thankful to me for teaching them a lot of what I know" ... That's what keeps me going for now.
rutee072064471dI was a team lead before, I hated it. I wish I still had my old account to refer to my rants. Too many distractions, people on your tits every minute of the day, you brain rots with all the management bullshit, etc.
