At ACN? Only if you’re willing to take the pay cut that comes with the office transfer. Otherwise the only international you’re getting is your team that you have to interact with at night

Harder to get out once you are in. It’s no fun to hit customs (both ends) on a weekly basis.

It's better to be lucky than smart on this one, odds are slim

I know people on global projects who travel to a new country every week... it’s rare but they come every so often. (Strategy btw)

I have been a PM at my company for 2 years now, with a years prior experience as associate PM. I got promoted before my certification, but was told if I did not get a PMP or ACP I would get my promotion taken away.
Received the ACP and have not seen a raise. Now we have a girl that is getting a 15k raise and going straight from Project coordinator to PM (with one year experience) and no certification. She will now be 5k less than me. If she gets CaPM she gets a 5k raise. Wong to feel slighted?

With the looming threat of recession, should I stop the aggressive payments I have been making on my student loans?

Fishes, would love to have your thoughts on this - I graduated school last year and have been aggressively paying down my student loans (50K left now, started at 91K last summer). With a recession looking likely, should I revert to minimum payments and save more? For context, I have enough saved right now for 4-5 months of living expenses plus some additional money in 401K.
