Which type of employer? Ex. Consulting company or startup?

Fortune 1000 companies

whats a top 3 program

US News has rankings of cybersecurity programs. In short, I got accepted to an MS in Cybersecurity program at MIT. Wondering whether to proceed in getting the degree, or if it makes more sense to just get a cert.

Anyone?

I have an opportunity to take a Senior role at a firm just smaller than Big 4 from a regional firm. This will be my 3rd job change in 6 years. So changing firms roughly every 2 years. The thing is… I am consistently getting huge pay increases. First change I went up 17%, the second was 30% if you just look at base or 16% if you include annual bonus. I am yet again looking at a 12% increase. But fear staying a Senior forever if this keeps up, what are thoughts on job hopping like this?
