Software engineer salary at big-4/MBB? My role is 90% management now and it’s not something I enjoy or am good at. Current salary is 190k and was wondering if it is possible for similar money to code?

How important is having an MBA (or a master’s degree generally) for serving in a CIO/ CTO role? Currently a software engineer, interested in doing a CS masters if I can get into a top school/get funding, but am reluctant for a lot of reasons (lost salary, family reasons, etc.) Goal is to become an architect and maybe eventually a CIO/CTO. Thoughts?

My husband was affected by covid related layoffs this morning from a cybersecurity product company. He is a principal software engineer with 9+ years of front end experience (angular, ember, node, html css). Located in Virginia but open to move anywhere and would need immigration support. Any pointers to companies that are hiring right now / a referral from a kind internet stranger would be appreciated. Thanks!

Hi all, I’m 3 years out of college: 2 years as a software engineer, transitioned into an SA role at the same company a year ago. There’s been enough negative changes the last few months under new management that I’d really like to look for a job elsewhere. Will I have any chance of finding good work with just 1 year of experience? I’m located in southern CA
