Hi! Unfortunate that this is your experience. I am at Director level already at a very large company. And know people at C-level without a CS degree, too. We all have 2 decades or more of experience, of course.

To name a few notorious VPs of Engineering without a CS, you got David Brunelle, VP of Eng at Starbucks and Sarah Drasner VP of Eng at Netlify.

So, no. It is not so.
