Hello PF, I have searched this subject over the internet for a year now but still can't get a clear view on it since the ideas and specialisations of a PhD are far too wide. Next year i will get into university and i really want to do a major in physics to then go for a phd in the field that i would like the most. But many people on the Internet and outside told that it is not worth it , that you have to stick to postdocs and the jobs are more like misery. But also when i think about the future i see that there is HUGE number of engineers getting graduated and entering jobs that i don't think it is worth either ( engineering was my second choice) So is it logical of me to think that a PhD is the best thing to do now since every bad review about it is 2 years ago or older? And that everyone is doing engineering so much that professors will be needed in the future and that would solve the hardness of getting into academia?
