Only at orgs that view management as a naturally escalation from engineering.
I'm sure there are senior and non senior devs who haven't written code for a year or two who could code circles around me....
But I'd be a little skeptical of them none the less.
1. I want to see their good work as an example, or at least something we could talk about / understand.
2. I would worry that over time if you're not coding in a code base old ideas and etc could get stale / it could become harder for folks to understand each other.
I worked with a good guy who moved up to a non technical department head kinda guy. Good guy, but oh man he really wanted to get into the nitty gritty and as time went on I had to do a lot of work to get him to stop ... being technical. He'd suggest timelines and procedures that just weren't what he thought they were, and he was confused how they could have changed...
