Analytics all the way. I find CS is treating cloud as new tech, and they can't do advanced AI, ML, or statistics. usually can't spell XB-Boost let alone explain its applicability.

Much will depend on what courses you choose, regardless of major.

Sorry, I hate long replies on phones when I can't use voice entry. My mistake. I'll own it.

If you have a BS in comp science an Ms in comp science won’t do much. I would then recommend the MS in analytics especially if coupled from a business school

I do have a BS in CS. This was my exact thought. I'm just not sure what looks best on a resume.

Even so I still recommend CS. MS in Analytics is considered for model consumers, which is not hard core enough for you especially you want to get on a specialist track. At the end it's math algorithm and programming.

Computer Science if you want a real job. Analytics if you want to remain as a consultant

I studied MS Business Analytics and I have a real job as Analytics Manager managing those who studied Computer Science. Depends what kind of job you want.

CS if you want to actually build stuff. If you just want to analyze data and present them to fellow humans then analytics.

My data science team builds applications. Only one ms in comp sci on the team. One doesn’t exclude you from the other.

CS majors get about half what analytics people get in industry.

I’m not sure what it looks like industry wide, but at the FAANG companies from what I’ve seen, they pay swe more and analytics a bit less, or the same in some cases. But I haven’t seen any where they pay analytics more than swe. I say that as someone in analytics but who did a major in CS and have some regrets about the direction I took.

Depends on your career path. What do you want to be doing after you get the degree?

I believe the Faang will pay more, and SW companies as well. In Comms, Media, and the Resources companies I'm working with CS and low level Analytics agree pay much less than Data Scientists. MS DS starts well over 200K in tier 2 and 3 cities, NY suburbs in the $250K and up range to start.

I feel like it depends on what you want out of it and what coursework you want to take. More application based course work than Analytics, if you want more theory based course work then CS and if you want even more theory than MS in ECE focused on ML/DS

CS 100%

Looking to transition to a new career, possibly to SWE. I have a physical science background with some student loan debt. Before I dive into more student loans, I wanted to check out some Software Engineering boot camps....

Any recommendations? What's your personal experience? Are they worth paying, or is college the way?

Hello, looking for supervisor positions in healthcare within NYC, I am looking to start ASAP. I have my Bachelors in Health Services Admin and Economics, 5 years of experience in the industry and I am currently working towards my PMP certification, as well as going for my MBA or MHA, depending on what program I can afford. I am currently located in Queens. Thank you!

SPHR exam- has anyone ever been “randomly selected” for an application audit? This just happened to me and the sheer amount of effort that is going to go into collecting all the documents almost makes me not want to follow through. Since I didn’t finish undergrad, they’re asking for a copy of my high school diploma or transcript and that itself is going to be an absolute nightmare to get hold of. Guess I’m not really looking for a solution here, just venting.

What are you opinions on “Women in XYZ” groups that have surfaced. Totally understand the problem of less female representation in Tech but is this the right way to solve this problem. It makes sense when you are deprived of the opportunity because of existence of uneven playing field. But lately, feels like more of a branding thing as people using this as a medium have had much more means than many of their counterparts I have come across.

Reading through some possible interview questions for FAANG. One of the ones I've seen on Glassdoor are to design a basic architecture structure for something like Netflix or Twitter or Spotify. I've been researching online using AWS or GCP (still learning all the moving parts of architecture). Any advice on how the setup would be? I'm assuming you'd start with some Load Balancers. For Netflix maybe have different different APIs for signing up vs scrolling through possible movies?
