balki1867: Tr0mBoNe: My friend called his doctorate and pair of post doctoral fellowships a great experience in filling out forms for grants and submitting parts of his papers to hundreds of journals a month. He did a bit of research from time to time but it was mostly forms.He doesn't do what he was trained for (electrical engineering, cosmology and particle physics)... he talked his way into a systems engineering job and uses his degrees to negotiate raises. Smart people will usually manage to land on their feet.Having only earned Masters in Engineering, I have the utmost respect for people who've earned their PhD's: In my book they've demonstrated they can successfully navigate one of the most bureaucratic and political organizations in the world -- academia
