Anyone tried the new Sanctions Certificate (CGSS) offered by ACAMS? Trying to see how difficult it is considering I don't have a lot of experience with sanctions compliance. I have CAMS & work in AML

I feel like my work place is either discriminating against me or has me on a list to get rid of. At the expense of coming across as a jerk I stand up for myself at work and I'm not afraid of telling my work place no. Which is one reason I feel I'm on a list that my upper management doesn't like. I don't go out of my way to be a jerk but I know my rights as an employee and my work place doesn't like that. They won't let me promote but let people I've trained get promoted.

Seeking advice. Came into consulting late, after 8 YOE in federal gov. Hired on as a consultant despite exp, and spent last ~4 years in investigations/risk, first at fairly well-known mid-tier firm then a boutique. Twice promoted in that time, so now senior associate/director-level making ~150k TC. Others at my level are abt the same age, so I am almost ‘caught up’. Problem is I dislike the work, feel v burnt out & underpaid. Has anyone successfully exited this space? If so, how and to where? 🙏🏽
