Re: Good base career choice
I just had to chuckle at this. I have a 4 year BS degree in Comp Sci in 1985. I've spent my career working at biz units where local staff was very small or (like now) I'm only IT person at site. I execute about 7-8 of these "careers" as part of my core job. I was kidding HR it looks like they owe me about $800K per year in salary.
Seriously, since when did developer, database admin, business analyst, security, architect, etc get so segmented? It certainly wasn't taught that way in 1985 and no SMB is going to employ one person for each of these jobs. Life at big companies must be a nightmare. And very, very boring.
