What is it like working as a Lead Software Engineer?

Lead Software Engineer in Noida:
"Strong technical skills complementing psychologist nature."
Pros: I like searching solution, fixing problems for my team. It gives great pleasure when your teammate will come to you saying: "This is a very difficult problem and there is no solution for this." I give my time, read so many articles and finally solve the problem. And their smiling faces after that.
Cons: Managing teammember's mood like they become too emotional everyday. They will come up with unique problems not to work, ex. don't feel like working today, spouse/GF/BF fight, relative visiting, etc.
