Career suggestion

Hi, friends,

I need some suggestions on my EE career.
I have been working on digital VLSI design for several years.
in small company. Thus I got good experience from front end
to back end. The problem is I feel I become more and more
like an high tech blue collar workers.
So there are several choices in front of me:
1) Back to school, get MS degree, and PHD if possible.
2) Study MBA, switch to management position.
3) Join big company to learn more staff.
Any suggestion? Thanks in advance.

Re: Career suggestion

Can consider switching to another company....can take up MS/PhD or MBA as part time if you have time. These days working experience has higher value than academic qualification(I am not talking abt degree). Just my thoughts. :)

normally it is good to switch company after working in the company for 3 years. So that, you can learn up new design, new circuit, new product and also can learn
from different experinced designer.
