Those who are swe from a non-CS degree, do you feel disadvantaged?
How hard was it to get your first CS job with non-CS background? Once you had your first job, did it really matter after that?
From my understanding:
1. Product Manager needs an MBA to grow and switch jobs. An PM with an MBA degree will be preferred over a PM with no MBA (even for experienced hires).
2. Similarly, data scientist needs a quant PhD to grow and switch jobs. A DS with a PhD will be preferred over a DS with no PhD (even for experienced hires).
Is that true for swe too? Those who are swe from non CS background, do you feel disadvantaged by any means - getting interview calls, bias, low-ball, unable to perform well, visa issues?
