I'd say getting an MBA begins to stop adding values once you pass manager

Maybe on the specialist track? Gives us something OP

If OP is coming in as anything under SC in S&O then an MBA is likely. If SC or above may not be needed

I'm in a similar situation , I have a specialized degree and an important cert in it as well. I would not get my MBA. Think of the cost of not working for two years, cost of living expenses for those two years, cost of school, and the increase you're going to get when you get out.

I came in as SC into HC - but my skill set is in analytics/modeling/finance

Also - My personal feeling is that it would be a waste of time and money with little added value to my development.

Yea not worth going at this point unless you really want to change career paths

Agree with D2. But don't be pissed when you meet another HC SC that is making much more than you. Because they do.

^With an MBA I mean vs. an SC without

Are financial planners worth it? I am interested in getting a financial planner because I feel as if I am trying to accomplish too many goals (save money, pay down debt, invest) and am doing it in an efficient/smart way. I was thinking about going with Facet Wealth Management to help me come up with a focused plan but am worried I may just be adding another unnecessary expense. Any advice is welcomed!

My partner and I adopted a dog during the pandemic and I’ve been struggling for a few months with it. Our dog is really needy and has high levels of anxiety. We haven’t been able to leave her side or she’ll freak out. We’ve been barely treading water and the stress put me into a manic episode (I have bipolar). It’s been making my days barely manageable and I’m tired of crying over small things because my emotions are much more intense than usual. I hate myself and I want to disappear.
