CTC : 22 lac+ Current Org: Big 4 Been thinking this over a lot as this would involve a lot of money and of course my time; Also, I might be full of regret later on for giving it a proper shot. Would I be risking stability and money for this? My wife is fine with this though. Opinions pls.

I am interested in getting my SHRM-CP certification this year and I was wondering which study methods and materials worked best for those of you who passed the exam. Also, what are your roles in HR?!

Would a SHRM certification be beneficial for a consultant in organization strategy? Anyone in a similar boat?
Would you take the following offer: Base - ~$180K; Bonus - ~$30K; RSU - ~$15k; Total Comp - ~$225K; F500 firm, not tech, mid-west, individual contributor role with potential for senior roles in 2 years.

They’re also trying to get me to sign the NDA ASAP so we can “leave on good terms”. They made sure to draw my attention to the non disparagement clause.
