I tried being a manager or director or whatever... Can I go back to being a developer/programmer now?

    Nope, the corporate ladder has spikes on it - you can't climb down

    Sorry, but corporate doctrine sees switching from actually doing things to managing others actually doing things as progression in the same profession instead of being a sideways change of profession. So asking to become a dev again is like asking for a demote...

    It might actually work, but better start looking for greener pastures too.

    * Dealing with people who find ways and creative reasons to not do their work
    * Dealing with people who think they are experts and we should listen to them always

    Pretty much just these two

    @jiraTicket Dealing with the spikes at the lower part of ladder is better than dealing with spikes at the top!
