Have people who have gotten the CGFM cert found it to be worth it? How hard are the 3 exams (I was a decent test taker in college)?

Worth it? No, minimal worth in terms of value to yourself. Only worth is showcasing to government clients that you have some experience.

Hard? Not at all.

I would say in some cases it’s worth it. It’s not a great differentiator on your resume or learning experience, but some government contracts require it to be staffed on certain projects. Also, does your company offer bonuses for certifications? If CGFM is part of your bonus program then it’s easy money.

If GT has contracts that require it then definitely go for it. It’s not hard, nice little bonus, and checks a box for your year end performance goals.

The Way to a Higher Salary? Leave.

If I had stayed in the role I was in originally and grown with it, I’d be making maybe $120k, best case. I also wouldn’t have broken 6-figures in under 4 years by waiting.

The biggest lie that companies tell you is you can grow in a firm, both professionally and financially. The only ones that grow are already the people a) getting the promotions, or b) on the sales side.

If neither applies to you, the fastest way to achieve salary growth is to leave.
