Hi all! I’m inclined on taking up the CIPM training and certification exam. I’m already a certified Data Protection Officer in the Philippines. I intend on skipping CIPP as it applies to the US and EU.
How difficult was the exam? Can you share your experience studying for the CIPM exam? Is it advisable to skip CIPP?
Many thanks in advance.

Has anyone every dealt with working for a business where the boss’s (attorney) wife (most definitely not an attorney) seems to actually be the boss? They’re actually insufferable and seem to be negatively affecting the business more than helping. She’s condescending and treats me differently now because I asked for more flexibility in my schedule and a raise because I was making ridiculously less at my previous job per hour. The attorney needs to basically run every single decision by his wife.

Ladies, curious if any of you are intentionally staying at your company knowing you could get paid more elsewhere? thought I was satisfied but I second guess that when I see/hear I can make a lot more if I jump ship. I can afford basic necessities, I typically log off at a reasonable time, & I like my team. But I can’t lie that higher pay is attractive esp during this economy. At one point do you decide you’re satisfied? I don’t want to continue chasing “grass is greener” but alas…

How common is it for an interview process at MBB to get drawn out for 3-ish months? I had my initial screening call with a recruiting company back in early May, then had a call with the actual MBB recruiter a week later. Since then, I’ve been interviewed by the person who would be my boss, followed by a partner, and then another partner, and I was just scheduled to be interviewed by another partner next week (after being told the last interview was my final). Am I just being yanked around?
