IC or Management

Should you work to become a director-level individual contributor (IC) or work to become a people manager? Both roles are critical in a mature organization, but each has distinctive responsibilities. One focuses on the craft of the product design work while the other is responsible for the team—people working together. Despite common myths around moving between IC roles and that of people management, there are reasons to make the switch or not, depending on what you're passionate about and where your strengths are.

In this episode of New Layer, Tanner and Jasmine shine a light on some of the most important aspects to being a hyper-senior individual contributor or that of a people manager.
