Hi Tax Bowlers, I'm an experienced associate (2yrs) in a Big 4 Transfer Pricing division. I have reached a point in my career where I am considering taking up a professional certification.

What would you guys suggest? Would it be detrimental to my career if I did not take up any certifications?

Anyone else (who is NOT in big consulting/tech/banking), run the numbers of when they'll be out of MBA debt and realize it was not worth it? If you had an income of 120k, it would be quite difficult to save for a house/retirement/etc while paying down debt for 10 years.
