Software Engineering can be a great career path. However some engineers eventually feel they have outgrown their technical engineering role and get the itch for a new challenge. Often the standard path is for programmers to be promoted into management roles. This can be sometimes be disastrous since many of the attributes a great manager are completely different than the attributes of a great engineer. This results in unhappy managers that manage poorly resulting in unhappy employees.
