Staff/Principal Eng —> Non-Entry Level EM
Is it possible to switch directly from being a staff/principal engineer to being an engineering manager above the entry level for managers? E.g.:
Facebook E6 —> M1
Google L6 SWE —> L6 EM
Amazon L7 SDE —> L7 SDM
Apple ICT5 —> M2
Is it easier to make this switch at some companies rather than others?
