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
