Thank you comment icon Hey Gian, I had to edit your question to make it more CareerVillage appropriate. I saw that you originally referenced a Chief Keef song. If you're trying to ask if you can work in the computer industry and still enjoy rap, the answer is yes! Gurpreet Lally, Admin

Hey Gian,

I can attest that being an IT manager can indeed be stressful at times. We operate in a fast-paced and ever-evolving industry, where the pressure to stay on top of new developments and deliver successful projects is constant. We face challenges like tight deadlines, managing budgets, and coordinating diverse teams, all of which can contribute to stress.

However, I must say that despite the stress, I truly love my job. The best part about it is the opportunity to make a tangible impact on the organization and its people. I take great pride in guiding my team to success, nurturing their growth, and helping them overcome obstacles. Seeing a project come to fruition, knowing that our collective efforts have contributed to the organization's progress, is deeply rewarding.

Moreover, working in technology allows me to be at the forefront of innovation, playing a role in shaping the digital landscape. It is exhilarating to be part of an industry that continually pushes the boundaries of what's possible, and I am constantly inspired by the potential of new technologies to transform our lives.

In the end, while stress is an undeniable part of being a computer and information systems manager, the rewards and satisfaction that come from leading a team, fostering growth, and driving innovation make it all worthwhile. The passion I have for my job and the knowledge that I am making a difference keeps me motivated and excited for each new challenge that comes my way.

Ankita’s Answer

If you are asking about stress level of IT/Engineering Manager every day is different, but your main goal is to understand how you can help your team to do better and perform at their best. A good Manager will not be stressed, if the team performs well. Depending on the team you are managing, it's always good to have 1:1 talk with the employees who are reporting to you to get transparent feedback. That makes the job easier for them and you as a manager both. Hope that helps!

Brock’s Answer

There are stressful parts on any job, but you'll be more stressed if you don't have a comfort level in the team and the technologies you'll support. This is especially true when things invariably go wrong:

- A new software
- A patch to a solution
- Service outages
- etc.

What I've always found that helps is being communicative and being in-front of the team working with the business to find solutions while your team is handling the issue behind the scenes. Your business counterparts will find comfort they are being heard and updated; while your team will know they are clear to focus on the solution and not having to handle irate customers.

Asim’s Answer

Work related stress will always be there with pressing timelines and high priority/ complex projects in computer science as well. You will have to plan your work and focus on the right priorities. As a software programmer, for example, if the code turns out to be buggy or user requirements are not met, things can become stressful. as a software architect if your architecture missed out certain applications/ systems or turns out to have an inherent fault/ gaps that cause the developers a lot of grief, it can raise the stress level in the job.
