Nice interview. The manager appoined Bill to become a manager should be fired at first. I hope this has happened. Why do we not look at the best strength of people and let them decide themselves where they are good in and what they like to do?

I got the same takeaway as you. Too many companies used to follow the Peter Principle, and push great engineers into becoming mediocre managers. But I think the opposite problem is worse. Nobody wants to say "my boss has no idea what I do for a living."

This is a very engaging story of success in engineering when passion goes with hard work. He says the Management tried to make a manger out of him without knowing his aptitude but luckily he escaped before being burned by it. I think more companies that we care to think make this mistake of trying to automatically push talented people up the management ladder without a regard to their preference. Even with all his years of experience Bill is still a design engineer being more productive to his company and one happy man at that, what else could a company want.
