  1. That “do you REALLY want to be a manager” really hits home with me. Like I said before, being in middle management can really be insulating at times. Not quite a boy, not quite a man. It took me nearly a year to find a good balance between being “the boss” but yet not being “upper management”. Honestly, that is something that I’m still trying to sort through.

    • Just had a discussion about this last night with my girlfriends. Managing people can definitely be scary! We discussed our frustration with companies not letting you just be superstar analysts (or whatever) and instead forcing you to manage people as you rise through the ranks.
