I’ve worked with science PhD’s who have left academia to work in the private sector. Almost uniformally, I find them to be elitist, arrogant, and extremely lazy. As a policy, I will never hire a PhD. Ever.


There are a few exceptions, but I've noticed the same.

In electrical terms, they are High-Q circuits. Knowledgeable in a very narrow field, with little knowledge, or even common sense, in most other fields...:^)

I know of someone with a Ph.D in pure mathematics. He’s now teaching calculus at a community college. He told me that he really wanted a research oriented position at a university but could not find one at this time.

What other lucrative field can he go into to make use of his education?
