Episode 25: Why you shouldn't be a manager
October 19, 2020
Raz, Yael, Noa and Alaa
Noa Tamir (Data Science Manager) and Raz Shuty (Engineering Manager) share with Alaa Sarhan (IC Fullstack-er) what management is about in general and why an IC (Individual Contributor) is nowadays more than ever empowered to not become a manager for the wrong reasons.
Sneak-peak reasons from the episode:
- Manager role is totally different from a lead IC role
- ICs are paid more than managers
- Missing short reward cycles, a.k.a "It's not about you anymore"
- and more in our lovely conversation ;)
