Is software engineering the best career in Tech?

I am currently working as a Business Analyst. Working with SQL, Excel and Tableau. Was looking for options on next career steps to take. I am not interested in Data Science/Machine learning. Tried few online courses and the level of advanced math required to excel in it makes me stay away from that path. Looking through this website, I feel like software engineering is one of the most rewarding careers to consider in terms of both TC and learning. For those who started in Business Analysis/BIE roles, what were your career goals and path. Thanks for your responses in advance.

Salary: 90000 base

      I will add that one where the ceo also has the majority of voting shares. That really limits it to a selected few

    I would say yes. The jobs are plentiful and growing, the work life balance is awesome, you get a lot of freedom and you can move into management if that’s your thing, or continue to be a high paid individual contributor. It’s also easier to go freelance or just build your own product and get money from it. This has been my experience generally but of course you can fall into a terrible team or company or product and hate your life.

      Is that per day or week? Sounds too low to be weekly and too high to be daily.
