Am thinking about getting my CFP, unfortunately my job does not reimburse so was wondering if the reward outweighs the cost. Also what are the best courses available? And how long month wise should one expect to study? Is aiming to take the test in July unrealistic if I start asap?

You need to become more of a player. That your company (CitiBank) 'does not reimburse' seems silly to mention here. That's not the point. If you really want to become a CFP you need to go to their pages and learn all you can. Get certified and then go for a new job that'll pay you substantially more than you're currently making. THAT move is the reimbursement.

Anyone here ever gone back to school while working as an associate? I’ve always wanted to practice for a few years and then move into academia. I’m at the point where I’m ready to start working toward that transition and am considering doing an online PhD while I keep my role as an associate. Anyone done this or something similar? If so, what online program (university) did you do (attend) and what was your area of study?

Am working as a data scientist now, and in the process for a VC role. Seems super interesting, but it's a role I'm more interested in trying for a few years rather than committing to for a long while.

But doing these code screenings for other roles is hard as is and I'm afraid of getting rusty.

Maybe this is like data scientists who got into product and now want to get out? How does that work?

I just listened to an interview of a creative director recount their path towards copywriting at a famous ad agency. It could not have been a more textbook case of failing upwards as a white man.

That this level of mediocrity passes for talent explains why so many agency briefs are so lame.
