hi ,

I have work experience of 5 years in java development. Now it about time to do a little bit of introspection and setting the goals right. I am being offered management roles involving frequent client interactions and I have a very good command over english language, creative as a person: write poems, do painting, do singing and extreamly fit as a person, hit the gym regularly, unmarried. Technologies I dealt with struts, xml, xslt, ejb, hibernate. scrum,fdd, Kanban.

Should I go ahead with the man-management roles or stick to the developers role? which one will bear more result and satisfaction for me as a person.


Regards

Guy

it seems you have both the capabilities, so why don't you take a technical lead role, where you won't code but always help others to resolve their problems, at the same time manage clients also.

'Nobody Which do you like better? Different people like different things. I wouldn't be happy in a person management role. Others are.


Harshvardhan: A good tech lead still codes. Not as frequently as when the whole job is coding of course.

Jeanne i agree with you. And what else could be more better, but I thought Guy won't get much time coding as he has to maintain client base also.
