    I started adding my benefits into the equation.

    Scenario 1: $250k vs. $150k + $50k in benefits = $50k increase with unknown insurance and no pension.

    Scenario 2: $200k in pay + benefits at UPS PLUS 80-100k from sysadmin part-time gig = $280-300k total with amazing insurance and pension.

    Scenario two wins all day.

    A+, Security+, CySA+, Pentest+, CCNA, OSCP, Associate of ISC2 (Passed CISSP exam but lack the formal experience to fully be endorsed as a CISSP).

    CISSP was by far the most challenging because after obtaining all the previous technical certs, the CISSP is a mindf*** because it is non technical, a mile wide and an inch deep with the perspective of management.

    I finished OSCP in 8 hours, but spent another 7 hours on the documentation side of the exam (you have to document everything you do in the Pentests). The documentation part was challenging.

    Correct. My job focuses on bringing the company into ISO27001 compliance for future certification and to maintain it once we do. The secondary aspect of my job is more of a sysadmin.
