I'm a engineer with 19yrs experience and up until very recently, my job has been primarily engineering, project management, maintenance - hard technical stuff with people management thrown in (but always managing engineers)
My boss spoke to me recently about my future in the organisation and how he'd like to see me progress. But this would involve my getting involved with a) non-engineering roles and b) politics at a level I'm really not comfortable with.
I'm wondering has anyone else from a hard technical background made the move to a more corporate role and how did they manage it/cope?
