jiraTicket175213dNope, the corporate ladder has spikes on it - you can't climb down
Oktokolo1107213dSorry, 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.
sariel917313dWhat's the top three things you hate about it?
What are the top three things you miss the most?
melezorus34377213d@jiraTicket but I didn't even agree on climbing it, they pushed and physics engine made a oopsie and now I'm at top...
AleCx042828713dsorry homie, if it makes you feel better, we both stuck on this shit :D
Buuuuuut you could still attempt a senior engineer route
* 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!
@AleCx04 wish me luck 🤞
I tried being a manager or director or whatever... Can I go back to being a developer/programmer now?
