I don't understand what you mean by analog embedded system.
Also, "better" is a very subjective word. It varies depending on the measuring unit. If you would like to have challenge in what you work on, then analog is good compared to digital. In terms of the industry, analog is a small sector compared to digital. Hence from job availability is more in digital domain, as well as more engineers are available in this domain. So, the remuneration is less compared to analog engineer.

Also analog side requires lot of experience, min 4-5 yrs to get into a good company.
And you cant get any free tools, license cost is hefty.
