I work in the Human Capital space and manage projects. What is worth more - SPHR or PMP? Or do either count? Obviously want to make Director and eventually more...

In consulting neither matters honestly. if you're looking to head into industry as HR, SPHR will do you good, if you're looking to do project management then PMP. it never hurts to get either one but if you're trying to leverage them, industry would value them more.

I'm human capital as well. In my experience the people who have SPHR and PMP and other alphabet soup in their email signatures are often the least effective team members. Do good work, make clients happy, think innovatively and you'll be fine. You can do all those things without a certification

What does SPHR and PMP stand for?

Super peak human resource.

That makes sense K3

Would you take a job that pays well ($100k more) but not very interesting to meet your FIRE goal? It may even be a step down in your career but well… it pays well.

Or would you take another job that you are excited for, mentally challenging, definitely going to be more stressful but it is going to push you toward a more fulfilling work (at least to my ego 🤣). It pays a lot less.

I am coach for someone in the USDC. I was talking about the pension and I was told that they only get the 401. I looked at our 401k plan and noticed the match is very poor. The match is .25. So basically if a practitioner makes $100,000 and gives 6%, then D only puts in $1500 annually. This is horrible and if I was being honest then I would advise people to look to a company that cares for their future. I googled average matches and Deloitte is not even close to the average.
