I got two offers this week. Both offers give me a nice pay bump and title jump. Not sure what to do and how to leave my current project without protecting my team from the crazy client

Don’t leave. Stay in your current project and continue to save your team from the crazy client .

You are a great manager for thinking that. Is there someone you trust that you can hand this engagement to? Also, try to negotiate a delay start at your new employer. But under no circumstance you should let this situation hold your career back. Do right by people - including yourself. Congrats by the way.

If you have two offers on the table, to me this would mean that there’s a significant reason why you’ve decided spend the time to pursue or be pursued by two other firms. I think it’s awesome that you are thinking of your project team. I’m sure it’s one of the attributes which make you a good manager. However, you have to remember why you’re leaving in the first place and put yourself first. It’s just business... The standard two to three weeks notice my friend

Title at my current job is Project Manager, which is not totally incorrect but my role is really niche and more on the operational side (COO team). I’m wondering whether it’s worth it to get a PMP certification so that I would be more qualified/attractive to transition into a traditional PM role when I move on from my current job. Is this something that is actually given credit on a resume or would it be a waste of time/money?
