    Hey buddy, are you working in a Cisco partner? I feel that's the only type of employers to actively encourage/push us to finish CCIE.

If I run into something out of the ordinary, I’ll typically research it (on my own time) or phone a friend (or post here ). My CCNP friends have no problems calling me with voice related issues!

    So in my particular case, I would say no – It hasn’t hurt me at all but someone else’s miles may vary. One thing to keep in mind is the more certs that you have on your resume, the more you’re opening yourself up to being drilled with questions from multiple tracks come interview time - so if you don’t have the relevant CCNP experience right now, then focus on your passion (which sounds like Security).

    Unfortunately no – Certs are all on me (I get reimbursed for test fees only).

    Same here, I am in-house too.

    Our director gave me green light all the way to CCVP. But after that, no positive feedback on the possible CCIE route.

    Of course not! That would mean CCIE money and a good chance that you would walk after all was said and done!

    exactly. That's why I am looking for some new opportunities.

    ha, just realized you and I went on the almost same route: CCNA R+S, CCNA V (I got IPTX) and CCVP.
