So, it is settled, I will change positions internally in my company, and be closer again to software development. Embedded world in automotive is just moving (ha!) a lot at the moment with electrification of vehicles, autonomous driving, AI, connectivity, ..., plenty of interesting topics, so I am a bit excited to join development again. My company is big enough that this change is like changing companies - new workplace, new colleagues, new products, a complete different environment.

I have been that "clueless" technical manager in the last decade you guys bitch about in some lounge posts from time to time - I chose to step back from this career, which likely means a dead stop in any kind of career in my company, because you cannot recover from this - but then, what is exactly career ? As a tech and teamwork lover, the management spheres were too far away from reality, and too dehumanizing. In the past, I really believed that success could be achieved without 20% profit increase targets each year, without using people as the first resource to delocalize or get rid of when things do not run as expected, without talking "empathy, entrepreneurship, .." and not believing a single word of it... I was sadly wrong : in the end, money talks, always. If I cannot change the world, let's change at least mine Smile | :)
