I'm late to the discussion. I graduated in '87 and got my PE in '94. I only studied for a couple of weeks, but I studied over 40 hours a week. I took the ME test. Best career move I ever did. I was laid off in '94 as well (thus the study time), the next job I had required a PE. The one I have now also requires a PE, and I am the only PE in my company. I stamp a drawing around once or twice a year.

We manufacture products used in civil construction. Having a PE when we are going in for an approval as an equal in a spec is incredibly helpful. Having a PE does garner a bit more respect.
