Many people look only at its disadvantage: i.e. low-returns, but forgot all about its advantage: low-risk.

The flip side to professions in which you will not be paid much no matter how good you are, is that you will not starve no matter how bad you are.
It is in SG, not in US. In US it's fairly common place to see engineer make big because as said before difference is non-existent R&D.

In majority companies where engineering is the core competitive advantage, engineering track goes all the way to the top alongside management track.
