Do engineers who switch to management start at M1 at FAANG+ companies regardless of engineering experience, or is it based on total experience?

Do they only hire either internally engineers switching or only hire external people if they have management experience?

What suggestions do you have for people looking to make the switch? I'm not sure how much longer I want to keep coding.

Coming in externally into a manager role is a receipt for disaster. We manage our people differently than industry - people that take a role as manager from the outside naturally try to manage using what worked at their old firm. That does not fly at google.

When a manager does not click with their team....the mgr is replaced

As for your question....I believe there is a manager track for all job families

You have to start planting the seeds for the manager switch early on, and you can't assume it'll just happen. There is a manager track but it's worth flagging in discussions (informal or formal) to make it clear where your mind is at - otherwise you're likely to get passed up for others

I'm in the same boat. Looking for something more substantial and fulfilling than coding.

Have you thought of starting a business? I'm getting more interested in that route.
