    From what I can tell it's booze, chicks and millions of dollars. Ask Minger.

    Seriously, they're just like any other engineer. There are so many different factors that go into job satisfaction and enjoyment. Was there anything in particular you were wondering about, like work load, pay, etc...?

    Well I was shot at on occasion, but that's probably more a function of what I did after I earned my degree rather than my specific degree, itself.

    You pretty much hit the nail right on the head. The booze is malt liquor, the chicks are the eldery women in HR, and millions of dollars is actually pesos...if you have experience.
