Is the Workday Payroll Certification really worth it?
Especially considering you can make a similar amount of money doing the other core HCM modules without having to learn about the Practitioner side of things in Payroll.
Also, if you want to exit to an internal role, 9/10 job openings that I see do not even list payroll as a requirement but you'll always see the core modules+ Absence & TT.
Please share your thoughts.

Is it harder to meet billables in certain practice areas? I’m in T&E and in busy times I’ll be working on 15 different clients in a single day. I feel like I lose so much time task-switching and my billable hours also don’t reflect the mental load I carry around thinking about all the moving parts for so many different clients. Has anyone else had a similar experience? Have you found any time entry or organizational tools that have helped you?
It seems like it’s pretty risky to do an MBA (even M7) if you want to work in non-amazon tech. I work for FAANG already, but nervous about recruiting post-MBA since most schools send only 3-6 people to my company. If I do decide to go the MBA route should I just force myself to be comfortable working at amazon?

Question for MBB folks or those familiar: I did NOT go to a target school for undergrad but graduated top of my class and got promoted early twice to get to Manager in 4 years at PwC.

I have solid product management experience in the FS space
