I'm in the middle of that ride. It's more of a step sideways than it is a step down - salary didn't change 😀

At this stage in my life, I've got the energy to be heads down cranking out tickets, concerning myself that we're building things right. We have a lot of hairy technical problems that are a lot harder to solve when half your week is spent managing projects. I get to focus on that for like 90% of my week now.

I hired a new manager to replace me, and I'll report to him, and it's now his responsibility to make sure we're doing the right things, working with stakeholders, managing performance of individual team members.

Once I have some kids in a few years, I'll transition back into management.
