PhD in CS is the least worth it out of all the PhDs you can get
Reason is because the industry is so desperate.
I don’t even have a masters and I regularly get interviews and offers from companies that require a masters and prefer a PhD.
Of all the disciplines, CS is the hardest to bullshit. If you have the skills, and maybe a little luck, you get the job. That’s wildly untrue for other fields where the degree seems to matter a lot more.
@FrodoSwaggins Yea I have 0 intentions of getting either one. Just weighing my options out.
Though the idea of being Dr. jhh2450 is pretty cool sounding 😂😂
Edit: Actually I'm considering the Master's. I am a bit ahead towards getting my degree. Throw in a couple of summer classes and I could get the Master's in 5 years instead of 6 or 7.
I have a MS in CS and it is irrelevant. Hasn't helped at all. Program was pretty worthless too. Undergrad in business though. Haha. It might be useful for research since a lot of them are theory and you want to go that route.
