Checking out at age 40? Start a new career?

It sounds like you (and a couple others) just don't enjoy managing people. If you are getting good reviews and are generally valued at your current employer, why not pursue getting moved into an Individual Contributor, high level role? I bounce back and forth between Management and IC roles and the pay is in a similar range, but IC typically pay a little better and are a lot less stressful.
