It helps to get a few steps up the management ladder.....In my experience, a minority of people--fewer than hold the position(!)--are talented managers.I never aspired to it myself--heck, I had my hands full managing my own self, although I did enjoy project management (I enjoyed the meetings, especially learning how other functions worked, and weighing in on group decisions, and the excuse to touch base with colleagues on the project...nice break in my lonely cubicle existence ;-). My husband loved managing people technically and was good at it, but little interest/talent in administration other than determining project plans and tracking against them. He didn't like the people stuff--except hiring, he liked that, and socializing some, but the problem-people stuff, No. He's grading his very last class at the moment and doesn't like that, either. Work is usually work, not play.Interesting career, tele. At least GE left you with a small pension to remember them by.
