First, I only work because it affords me 2 Luxuries I've grown Accustomed to:

1) Living Indoors
2) Food

So, given that. Yeah, you either manage teams, or manage more people. You slowly become a lead.
The real question is "Are you chasing $$$ or is it a career/lifestyle?" As I am over 50, I am
at the point where I don't have to do most of the programming, and I am happy for that. I would rather design the system at a higher level, and push the developers to grow!

Honestly, I am learning PostgreSQL right now. It's been a lot of fun. But I am mentally SHOT at the end of the day UNLIKE when I was 20-30 years younger. My raw CPU power is lower.

So, capitalism works best when EVERYONE is seeking their own values... Find what you value, and go for it. In the end, WEALTH comes from starting your own business, and hiring others. Otherwise, you get a salary, and you MIGHT get some stock options (I've had 3 sets effectively expire worthless).
