No one in any company I've ever worked for, and I've been in four since my PhD, seems to understand the value of my work. After a honeymoon period where I am effective, respected, and productive, by the middle of the first year things change. I find my responsibilities reduced, my ideas continuously opposed, decisions overruled and undercut by management, even by those less qualified than myself on the technical issues at hand. I have time while continuing in my current position, and I'm sure that the business curriculum is not challenging compared to the sciences, but will this actually give me the tools to keep advancing rather than the pattern I've experienced?
Should I get an MBA?
