Sorry. Wishful thinking. Lot of Wall Street firms are run by ex-engineers, physicists and mathematicians. Vikram Pandit was an EE. Being an engineer isn't a panacea against selfishness and greed.

There. See ? Confirms that H1B(*) has rocked AND toppled the standard of living of American EE's, driving their standup personalities and high salaries out into the lower class. Replaced by obedient-less qualified(resumes inflated by greedy US colleges+greedy UNpatriotic US corporations+greedy US lawmakers+'tiger' pack study groups sharing howework loads, or faked back in India or China). Do NOT let yur children be duped US colleges promising great EE careers to your kieds. US colleges are part of the H1B scam-going on 30 years. I recall in my 1st job, a grey haired Phd H1B, trying to take over my small project, claiming he was 27yrs old-my American manager loved these H1B's, though. just loved them back n 1987 !! No wonder ...

UNpatriotic US corporations won't hire US EE's out of school, BUT, they will hire and Indian or Chinese H1B right out of school. The H1B's sense this higher caste privilege and eke out bad behavior in the US workplace, literally reach ove rthe hand of a igher qualified, standup US EE's hand topus buttons on a test equipment panel, cause mistakes--distractthe good work and intentions of a US EE AND, NOT bat a eyelash or flinch, knowing that their low H1B salaries and obediency-willing to cheat(*) US regulations in safety critical environments are GOLD to the US corporation. (*) H1B's have a higher caste--they get to do the design work and US EE's are pressured to do the verification/regulatory approval SIGNATURES, allowing the H1B's to hide their lower quality-obedient level work from US regulatory standards. i.e. to US EE' the company's pressure is: approve their work or leave

Identified soe typos from typing too fast--lets correct them .... UNpatriotic US corporations won't hire US EE's out of school, BUT, they will hire and Indian or Chinese H1B right out of school. The H1B's sense this higher caste privilege and eke out bad behavior in the US workplace, literally reaching over the hand of a higher qualified, standup US EE's hand to ignorantly push buttons on a test equipment panel IN A SAFTEY CRITICAL PRODUCT supplier, cause mistakes on the test screen capture--thus distracting the good work and intentions of a US EE AND, NOT bat a eyelash or flinch, knowing that their low H1B salaries and obediency-willing to cheat(*) US regulations in safety critical environments, are GOLD to the US corporation. (*) H1B's have a higher caste--they get to do the design work and US EE's are low end pressured to do the verification/regulatory approval SIGNATURES work, allowing the H1B's to hide their lower quality-obedient level work from US regulatory standards. i.e. to US EE' the company's pressure is: take the legal risk approve their work or leave

The +100K pensioned jobs in the Fortune 500 are going away. The last bastion of those secure-retirement jobs are in the civil service sector, and those folks are going to have a rude awakening in a few years. The world is changing rapidly--the future for American engineers now is in the smaller and mid-sized firms. The paychecks are smaller, and you'll have to learn to manage a 401(k), but the HR department is easier to punch through and the opportunities are usually better in the long run.

I think we are well on track for companies in the $1 to $100 Billion range to have maybe 10 employees maximum. Everything else will be outsourced. But the outsourced jobs won't be well paying jobs, they will gravitate to minimum wage jobs. It's going to be a "Brave New World" for our kids.

There is insufficient capping on debt and litigation, hence bankers and lawyers always in demand.

Not just for engineers... it's a sad reality for most people under 30 that we no longer have what our parents had in terms of retirement prospects
