How does it paid off?

 

I think it is interesting to know how passing the lab exam changes someone's life.

For example:

 - After passed the lab, did you receive more income? Double? Triple?

 - Did you find a prettier/better partner than your ex?

 - Do you solve problem quickly now and have more free time to browse the IE forum?

 - etc ...

 - OR nothing changed

 Please share your experience on how it paid off. [H][B]

    No kidding, what is better than working with the best and GETTING paid $$$ :-)

     

  • I definatley have more time to browse the "general" forums!  Still waiting on the income component though....I'll give 'em a few more weeks to present something before I start the search.

    Other than that, I did have time to clean my desk, walk around the office wondering what I should be doing now that I'm not studying, and also wondering why it feels so strange to be going to bed before midnight...

     

     

  • How about this for a success story!

     - My partner left me!

    - I don't get paid a single penny more,

    - No promotional prospects whatsoever

    - I'm the principle IP engineer with salary equiv. to industry CCNA standards...

    Why? because I work in the incumbent SP in Gibraltar and they know I can't go anywhere else without leaving the country!

    and oh yea - I'm well into my CCIE SP prep.

    Why I hear you say? Because it feels good!

    Personal satisfaction is often the best thing out of it.



    Back when I first got my CCIE, I did get a salary increase, but nothing
    promotion-wise because I was already at the top.  For me, though, it
    was more about the accomplishment then anything else.



    I certainly won't argue with all the opportunity that has come by since
    getting my CCIE that may have otherwise passed me by!  But that wasn't
    the motivator.



    Everyone does this journey for different (and often very personal)
    reasons.  As long as it means something to you, then that's all that
    matters!



    I don't know of anyone who  got their CCIE "just because they had to".

  • Honestly I have no idea what to do...  work is too easy now, and my only technical satisfaction comes from independent study.  No raise, no promotion, and the economy isn't too hot.  Still think I might go find a new job though.  Relieved to be done though, and not certain I would have do it if I truly knew what was involved.

    Don't want to stop though... tightening down my voice configuration and thinking about the SP track.  I want to know even more than I did before
