I got my Masters and more Manager and above level roles in Analytics are requiring it, so I feel good about the choice. Just hard going to class and working full time so make sure you can afford it and can make the time during the week and the weekend.

Does anyone feel burned out from healthcare from this past year? I straddle tech trans and do procurement/manage the research department of a health system. Is it just me or do health systems compensate less? If I'm going to have to work long hours - I might as well get paid more going the private sector/tech company route.

Debating on finishing school. I have no desire to move into management & I went back to school to finish my undergrad as more of a personal goal. However it’s very time consuming & exhausting working & going to school as a non-traditional student. Financially, the company is paying for my degree & there’s no pressure for me to finish. I’ll be making 6 figures in the next 2 years if I stay with my company regardless of degree status. Is it worth the time & stress? GPA was a 4.0, now it’s a 3.0
