Will CS masters help me? BSEE + MBA + 12 yoe
I started in HW, then systems + eng mgmt + program mgmt. Want to be able to do cutting edge AI/ML work, and I’ll be honest, I’d like some elite TC too. I’m in SoCal, top TC was 230 at SpaceX with high stress, now my TC is 190 with no stress. Some of my friends from SpaceX are pulling 300+ at Lyft, Uber, and Microsoft. Will a CS masters help me get that? Will I need to leave SoCal for that kind of TC?
