I agree, but I'd describe those as "corporate IT" jobs, not as "CS" jobs. A degree in CS really isn't suited to later being embedded in a large corporation's IT division. To fit in there, a computer scientist would first need a lobotomy.

I definitely think these corporate IT jobs are challenging, just not in any way a Computer Science degree prepares you for (nor should it?).

I don't want to drag us down the rabbit hole that is the current state of software education, however.
