Fred’s Answer

I'm not sure how to approach this question...so here are just random thoughts...

1) it's fun. I like puzzles and challenges. Much of the work I do is similar to that. "Here's a problem - go fix it". Sometimes it's frustrating, and then you find the solution, and it feels fantastic.

2) it's boring. One thing you don't learn about in school is how many meeting you go to. Some days I have 13 hours of meetings scheduled in an 8 hour day - as many as 4 overlapping.

3) it's rewarding ( potentially). I've worked in a few different industries. When I worked in healthcare, I could see the impact my work was having. I've worked in other industries that weren't quite so fulfilling. I do think my current industry does great things, and my company in particular is terrific.

Darrell’s Answer

Computer Science is different for everyone. If you enjoy learning about computers and are working on a project you are passionate about then you will enjoy it a lot more. You will regularly be frustrated while trying to resolve a coding issue. But you feel very rewarded once you have found a solution. Finding a team and project that you can stand behind will make it very enjoyable but it will be long hours working to find answers and understand operations. What will make it even easier he practicing your problem-solving skills.

Swarada’s Answer

Computer science doesn't always mean you will be coding! You may choose a different field of interest in computer science. Personally, I am a Software/platform/enterprise architect. At the begining of my career I was a coder for a short duration of time and then gradually moved into system analysis, system design and software architecture! I do not write a single line of code but I do have a working knowledge of the systems and how they interact with each other and if they meet our technology needs

1. It is rewarding many times when you have successfully enabled functionality that everyone is willing to adopt
2. It is frustrating sometimes when you spend a lot of time negotiating with teams and diffusing unnecessary escalation situations
It is fun and boring at the same time when you spend more than half your day in meetings and hen feel like you have not accomplished anything
3. It pays bills and gives you the opportunity to save for your retirement which is cool!
