Anyone experience a bump in pay or promotion after earning analytic certifications (Power BI, Tableau, Alteryx, Azure)? Did your company care? Did you see an increase in job offers/prospects after?

I don't really think BI certifications have that much weight, unsure about Alteryx though.

Azure/cloud certs are much more valuable at my firm.

Thanks for the feedback! Trying to gauge the value of each one before starting my Masters. Trend and gut feeling is invest in cloud - I see BI as “nice to have” - looking for counter arguments or validation

I would recommend either cloud certifications or M.S. in analytics. I wouldn’t place a lot of value on the BI certs.

Totally agree. Gonna spend more time on cloud and focus on Masters

what kind of Masters and post-Masters work are you going to be doing? Cloud certs and knowledge is imo a completely different domain and skillset than BI work

Masters of Management in Analytics. Been doing BI work for 3 years, I see it as my core skill set, hence why I’m pursuing the Masters. As mentioned, I view product certifications are a nice to have. Looking into cloud as a complementary knowledge base to BI as I see the industry heading in this direction. Would like to work towards Analytics Director level in industry within 5-7 years.

My company didn’t care, but I got a ton more industry offers/some other smaller consulting firm offers once I got tableau/Alteryx certs. It’s funny because the certs are super easy to get too...

Certs are like a stat padder— a total nice to have. Thanks for the feedback!
