From my experience, it’s more about responsibilities than the hours. The hours will vary, some instances it will be more, some it will stay the same. There are a lot of factors: the team around you, the nature of the engagement etc.. you just get better at managing the additional responsibilities and expectations over time.

More responsibilities = more stress = more $ = more staffs to do things you don’t wanna do

Quite honestly I’ve been doing a manager role for 2 years before I got promoted. So it’s been the same. I’m used to it by now. I’m looking forward to growing my team so that I can be less in the details in the future and only have to give high level support.

So how do you communicate that to senior leadership that you don’t aspire to rise without sounding like you’re lazy/unambitious or whatever connotations that may come out of that

Same hours, but a different kind of work. My only stress comes from people issues. People really look to their managers to help keep them happy and provide the right opportunities. Sometimes I can’t give everyone want they want, or I need them to be flexible to meet my needs. It’s a delicate balancing act that I am still refining. For most of my career, I thought I never wanted to be a manager. Then, I worked under several sub-par managers. As start to have more opinions and ideas about how things should be done, you’ll want the reins.

Exactly, it’s about responsibility. Pre-manager you are like a waffle, having responsibility but structured in clear squares. As a manager, you are soaked up with responsibility, just like a pancake

But strange enough, for some reason there are more waffles than pancakes at manager level. Food for thought

Made it to the Technical Assessment portion of the interview process. Need to take brand elements and create an ad using photos, fonts, logos, etc. Seems super easy and there’s not much actual designing involved. But assuming it’s supposed to be and they just want to see I can follow the brand guidelines. They’ve seen plenty of my actual design work and we’ve discussed what I’ve done in my career. I’ve typically been asked to design something from scratch. Does that sound right?
