mgr role risk: forced out

An engineer can be forced out, too, due to performance or attitude, but a mgr can be forced out for no fault of her own — change of upper management.

The “like” factor is more important in a manager than an engineer. In a sense, a mgr keeps her place by pleasing her superior, in addition to doing her job (of getting things done.)

Therefore, a mgr position can feel more /precarious/ than an engineer position.
