Is PMP worth it? Already have a cert. Starting to manage some big teams/projects.

it sometimes help get your name into RFPs that are seeking teams with pmp certified practitioners. also good if you are looking for a job. outside of that, I haven't seen it hold any specific weight. it is a good discipline to have in your toolkit especially for large projects but you could get that rigor on the job. just because someone is pmp certified doesn't mean that they can run a project.

Agile and scrum certs are so easy to get. If you have 2 days and the cash you can get them

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?

Serious discussion.

I had 3 years of experience before I left my job to pursue further studies (MBA - Tier 2.5ish).

I joined Deloitte USI out of college and started with a package of 10.5.

Now, 3.5 years later, I've worked on a niche skill here and I currently stand at 23.5 LPA fixed. I'm switching to another firm next month for a fixed CTC of 27 LPA.

I wanted to understand is this inflated or not considering the fact that MBA does add a premium to your CTC.
