Other than a BSEE, I have no certifications at all. I currently have a very successful consulting career, working with C-Level executives in very large enterprises, and no certifications have been and are required. The only things that are required are 1) a detailed knowledge of how IT works; 2) Experience doing the kind of work that hire me to do; 3) References.
I hope this helps.
IT certifications sometimes get a bum wrap when people earn them and think it will be their golden ticket to success in IT. My view on IT certifications is that, when combined with real world experience and an advanced degree, they build your confidence, make you more effective, and aid in overall marketability. -TechTalker
