I’m taking the SPHR in less than 2 months and haven’t started studying for it. How difficult is it? I’ve been in HR for 20 years and have experienced ALOT in that time, although there are always employee relations scenarios that surprise me! How much do I really need to study for this? I just can’t seem to motivate myself to do it, I’m so mentally burnt out at the end of the day from a high stress HR job, the last thing I feel like doing is studying HR!
Hey everyone! Which is more beneficial in the new normal - a Master’s in HR/ Industrial Organizational Psychology, or a SHRM certification?

There is no trick to sell, either you can sell or not. The only trick is use your ears and identify key pieces and use them wisely in the conversation. Selling is a conversation properly led to a Goal.

Does anyone else in this role feel as if you work for the interest of your manager? My manager is the Dir of Operations and I feel as if I don't have any autonomy or authority, as if I was hired to do his bidding.

Any reviews on Infosys Consulting as a Senior Consultant? Is it worth going for long term?
Thinking of getting an online MBA from Kelley at IU. Been at Big 4 and am now at a MM firm doing transaction advisory and structuring work. I like the Online MBA as I can continue to work. I don’t particularly have aspirations to work at MBB or anything like that, but I would be interested in pursuing a MM banking job and eventually something in PE. Does that seem reasonable. I have a solid network already so not super concerned about networking during the MBA (and Kelley isn’t known for that).
Is manager considered the “ideal” time to leave CMAAS /accounting advisory if you “like” the technical accounting piece, but don’t necessarily want to work in client services your entire career?

How is maternity leave for equity partners handled at your firm? I’ll be the first female equity partner at my firm to have a baby (which is insane, but let’s set that aside) so there’s no policy at this point. I think the other partners are looking to me for suggestions, but I’m not sure what to propose. Would love to hear how other firms handle this. In case it’s relevant, I work at a boutique firm in Colorado with 7 (male) partners and 4 associates.
