Advantages and disadvantages of being a Manager

The Pros And Cons Of Taking A Management Path In Your Career

The Upside of Being a Manager 
  • Pay 
  • Power 
  • Status / Prestige 
  • Sense of personal accomplishment 

The Downside of Being a Manager 
  • Lonely At The Top 
  • No Immediate Reinforcement 
  • Buck Stops Here 
  • Somebody Always Wants Your Job 
  • Legal Liabilities 
  • Financial Restrictions 

Management as a career path is not right for everyone. You have to like responsibility. You have to enjoy working with people. You have to be able to deal with uncertainty and making decisions when you never seem to have all the facts in time. You probably will get paid more, but you'll earn it. However, when it all comes together; when all your people are pulling together toward the same goal and setting new records it can be a great feeling. When you see someone you trained go off on their own and become successful, you can take a certain amount of pride for having helped them get started. Management can be frustrating, and a lot of hard work, but it can be a very fruitful one as well.
