EM or IC role to pursue

Hi


I have been an IC for the last 20 years and have served in the role of a Tech lead. A year ago I was promoted as an Engineering Manager but I am not sure whether I fully like the role at least in my current company due to a lot of process and approvals. I am inclined to going to back to IC roles preferably in a FAANG but finding it hard to clear the coding interviews since I haven't coded for 2 years. I am kind of confused what role to pursue going forward in my current company or outside. Any help or guidance will be appreciated

I'm in the same boat. EM for one year and like the job. But also want to get into fang. Can't go as IC because I need to do a lot of catching up, and can't go as an EM because obviously not experienced enough..
