I've been in software engineering for 7 years now and I'm finding that these data scientists who are paid more than SEs (at least at my company) are really not that bright when it comes to a lot of common computer science practices. I find it really odd. Any SEs find this to be common? Is there any SE that has switch to data science? Do you think it's worth all the hype?

What kind of an idiot are you? These are mutually exclusive skill sets, dont need software engineering skills to be a good DS. Coming from a DS at Amazon
