Companies get very weird with titles...
I worked at a place with five employees and three owners/managers.
We had one "executive assistant" who did groceries, picked up the phone, made appointments, that sort of stuff.
She was very happy for two years and then management decided to change her title to "secretary" because they felt that was more appropriate for what she did.
I remember her crying because she felt like she got demoted, while that absolutely wasn't the case according to management.
Her salary wasn't even affected (you can't put someone back in salary unless you have a very good reason, which they obviously hadn't).
You kind of could've seen it coming that someone prefers "executive assistant" over "secretary" and since we had no one in the company with a similar role why not just leave it at that? WTF | :WTF:

Another company I worked at also had something like what you're saying.
You were a project engineer until you got the lead in a project, then you became project manager.
Getting the lead in a project didn't mean much, sometimes these people were soloing these projects.
The actual team leads were sr. project managers.
There was one technology manager who was supposed to research new technology and share it with the company (which he didn't).
Every team had two or three "managers".
With that, at least 10 people of a 30 people company were some kind of manager Laugh | :laugh:
