"management is not a promotion, it's a career change" - I liked this quote from "Effective DevOps". I declined to become a people manager when it was offered to me. I like the quote because management doesn't appear to get presented as a career change often. It gets presented as an extra responsibility at first. Then evolves.

I can get behind that statement. Where I work the 'individual contributor' is a well established and understood career path.
