From what I understand they’re still valuable as education, but the intangible part is less than you expect. Though I do know someone who went to the extension school and has “Harvard University” on his LinkedIn and Twitter... he’s gotten called out and hasn’t changed anything. Don’t be that guy.

Indeterminate. Remember the cert or degree you receive from it won’t actually say ‘Harvard’ on it... it will say ‘Harvard Extension School.’

Me too. I actually look down on people who proudly display Harvard (or other prestigious schools’) certificates. Like you didn’t actually go to that school in the way that is traditionally thought of as impressive (undergrad mainly, law school and business school usually)... you just paid them a bunch of money so that you could technically have their name in your educational background. Stupid IMO.

I'm trying to suss out if a new member of our dept hates me or my team (she manages a different team).

My initial take is she's just hard to read and probably a tightly controlled introvert. My direct report felt she's 'cold as ice,' 'bristling' at our suggestions, and forming a clique that wants to do their own thing with no input from our team. He's triggered very easily, and there was no explicit evidence, just a 'vibe' so I wrote it off. (See 1st comment)
