Have always been curious about what motivates people to commit to different career paths (manager vs. team/individual contributor).

Product managers sort of run the gamut between the two.

I think there are more to list than what @johncutlefish I add a few more here

Management Track

Need to achieve
Preparation for retirement or second career
ego



Team/Individual Contributor Track

Company political environment caustic (belief that the individual will be chewed up)
Perceived easy and comfortable life
Desire to have more control over work life balance
