Look for tech PM roles or roles you where you are the bridge between the engineers and the business. Basically an IT business analyst.

I worked on a serious software development project in past several months and realized I don't really want to be a software engineer. Low exposure to business user/leadership and long hours of debugging/brainless coding. Especially the backend dev. People notice you only when your work is broken.

@OP Ah. I hear you. But I've said this before here and I'll say it again the grass is always greener. Other tech jobs also may very well involve 'debugging and building shitty code', 'wiping senior ppl ass', etc. But as long as you're already setting your eyes on opportunities that you may enjoy more - hopefully it'll land something great.

Secondly. You 'can' teach yourself some fundamentals of software. It could be web development, data analysis, etc. Also maybe request a more techie project

Exact same boat OP. DD I've asked for tech roles but there is always someone on the bench with more legit development experience. So I get passed over and get slotted into another functional role for 8 months

Happy I was able to help @OP :)

What areas of tech and at what level?

I'm trying to go client strategy in tech

@D2 sorry I had missed your message. Being passed over by other tech folk on the bench does suck. But if you keep striving to be placed on a tech project as well as hone your skills (whatever that may be, and that may involve using time outside of work to read up/practice) you should be able to land something.

Big decision. Took a job at a small org/higher level with shot to GC to develop my strategic/team building skills. Turns out that’s not the role. I’m micromanaged, under-utilized, & stagnating- no real development, but it’s SUPER easy, good pay, nice folks. Recruiter called &, Hello, offer. Different industry, more pay, work, development, opportunities to grow into F500 parent. I know I should be satisfied with decent $ & an easy job. What’s wrong with me? What to do?

Struggling with an offer I got for an industry position. The base undervalues me, raises are low, but total comp is higher than I would get this year with my raise if I stayed (although it couldn’t compete with my expected comp next year). I’ll have better WLB, which I really need for various reasons, but so scared to give up everything I know and that the hiring company was putting on a show during the interview process.

As a heads up. If any of you are interviewing at Facebook and were planning to leverage their offer to negotiate at another company, they will recall their emails to you with any offer information as soon as they think it’s a no.

Thankfully I took a screenshot as soon as I got it.
