Career Crossroads

Thought of Sharing my Career Crossroad issue:

  • Back to School for a PhD (I’d belong to a better environment, but have to wait at least 6 years for a decent income) , or;
  • Establish a Company for providing Business Solutions based on OpenSource (Good for applying thoughts, Keep my day job, but I would still be in same overall environment), or;
  • UAE employment (lucrative, but have to return to same environment), or;
  • Same Job (Dead-end career, financially not enough), or;
  • ?

Appreciate any feedback.
