Hi all,

Im currently an associate level engineer at a large firm. I like my job, and would like to grow in my position. Ive been here for about a year. We have since hired a few more associates. They are great, but all seem so fixated on becoming manager or supervisor.

Personally, i have no interest in management. I understand its more money, but i like being in the trenches so to speak, and want to develop to a lead engineer, not a manager. Doing the business side of things sounds so boring, and it seems like way too much pressure.

I feel like this comes off as unambitious and i feel weird articulating to my boss I don't want to do any supervisory or management work, I just want to be an engineer during my upcoming one on one.

Any advice on how to do this without sounding like i lack ambition or dont see management as an engineering role?

Dear Rohit ,
BE  A GREAT STRUCTURAL  ENGEEER  LIKE  SRINIVAS  (HAL)  IYENGAR   OF  SIDMORE  OWINGS  &  MERRILL  ( SOM of Chicago USA )  .  He designed many Iconic structures, like ARCH  OFFICE   BUILDING IN LONDON .

Managers  can not do it themselves . They need  some one like  Hal Iyngar an Structural Engineer ,  to make  it  stand in worst loading like WIND and  EARTHQUAKES .
