some argue that it's not useful at all if you don't want an academic job,
some argue that if you got a phd and did not go to academia you failed your mission,
some companies value the phd a lot,
some are just intimidated by people who have it.

what do you think?

PhD is useful in jobs where you are the engineer,scientist,etc.But in any company,you are promoted to a post where management skills are required.There is no use of your PhD.You can,however with a PhD, get a better post as a fresher in a company as an engineer or scientist.But faster promotion will depend on your management skills.
