    Manager compare to team/individual contributor

    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.

    Manager compare to team/individual contributor - continued

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

    Management Track
    1. Need to achieve
    2. Preparation for retirement or second career
    3. ego

    Team/Individual Contributor Track
    1. Company political environment caustic (belief that the individual will be chewed up)
    2. Perceived easy and comfortable life
    3. Desire to have more control over work life balance
