Which field has a better future seems a good point to discuss.

First of all These technologies are complementary. A typical embedded system has VLSI components integrated into it. So both fields have a good future.
For me embedded systems is a more interesting field, as it sits on top of everything. You get a bird's eye view. VLSI is the much of core part though. It's a top priority that the VLSI design is perfect, as the whole system depends on it. If you're in the VLSI team, you know the system in & out. However, the embedded engineer (mostly, people who write assembly or low-level code that control the VLSI chips) may not be aware of what goes on inside the chip.
Opportunities are more for embedded systems as VLSI reached some stage like saturation as the processors are powerful and can deal with complex problems having small size.Though there are less jobs in VLSI But you have interest in VLSI Go for it... If you have good knowledge about VLSI. And gets R&D jobs in VLSI .You will get much better pay than embedded. :)
Check this link..Here some statics are given :- https://www.siliconindia.com/traini...-professionals-be-required-by-2015-id-19.html
At the end of the day .. you gotta decide for yourself. I'm currently work in embedded systems.
