    Oh, I know what you mean. My experience so far has been pretty negative on being mentored to make the switch from design to management. I've been a senior designer for a while now and tried the management role, but haven't had the opportunity to take a serious crack at it. Right now, I have a technical leadership role. Accountable for product decisions, vision, strategy and business side of it.

    Management's getting to me. As an individual contributor, I still feel that my involvement is limited as well as my capacity to deliver. I do want to get into management because I believe in the fact that you can scale up your impact on the product and the business through people. You do not have to push pixels yourself.

    I do want to be responsible for the solutions we push, but I do not want to be responsible for the careers growth of my reports.
