I am about to graduate and I am thinking about a VLSI design job and many of
my colleagues also want design jobs. Myself I am not sure though since I
dont see the field so attractive, so I need to ask:
1)there is lot of pressure -you often run into problems and bugs hard to
solve while struggling to keep the deadlines; I had a chance to talk to a
Pro with 15 years of experience he says he is fed up with tough work and
sometimes bored; How about you?
2) how hard is keeping up with technology compared to for example university
3)Slim chance for excellent salaries if you are not a top 3% candidate- to
make it to design management you probably need a PhD?;
By the way can some of the experienced folks let me in what becomes most
important with experience, age and family?
( right now I like design puzzles, being around smart people and doing
teamwork but I suppose as I mature my views on career are going to change)-
is money going to be the only concern or status?
If so perhaps I should transfer to marketing or sales jobs I hear they
generally pay better?
Any comments especially from the design veterans who could point the traits
an engineer needs to be good in design, highly appreciated
