@PwC why not put BA after your name too? Or high school graduate? Or potty trained?

If you've qualified I say claim it. It's what you worked for after all.

Don't put MBA in your title.

MBA is lame.

I would say CPA, MBA, PhD for sure...I start getting iffy on CISA, CISM, CISSP, etc

Love when I see an Esquire after someone's name.

Damnit that should have been @PWC1. If I had an MBA maybe I would have caught that.

No to MBA, yes to CPA (etc. certifications) and PhD. I've overheard management from several places dislike "MBA" in signatures. Also serious LOL @Deloitte1 (yes caps are necessary)

If you worked hard for it then why not

Only acceptable ones are CPA JD MD and maybe PhD. Put whatever you want on your LinkedIn to get hits but if it's on your business card I'm judging you

I meant exam wise....

Yeah putting MBA on there is pretty douchey

I think the part that kills me about this job is the extent of work we do for the client that’s outside the scope of what we should be doing. Zero ownership from client end, for the last 3 years
