Over the last two years, I've moved away from an engineering role to a management position. Mostly by sliding (not deciding) due to a need at the team level. I feel effective in my role, but I really miss programming.

Has anyone ever made the move back to engineering? If so, how did that go over with your employer / peers?

@zstix I made the move from management back to software development back in 2000, but I had to change employers to do it: at my old employer, the pressures that had caused me to move into management were still there and weren't going away.
