My employer offers $8,000 annually in tuition assistance. I have a graduate degree already and I'm considering enrolling in a second degree program. This degree is specific to my current career field of data center operations. I'm on the fence about going back to school, but I don't want to leave money on the table either.

One can NEVER have too much education. If you have an opportunity to get another degree then do it. My high school math teacher was one year from having his PHD yet he taught high school math for 30+ years in the same small town. When he finally retired he went back to school and got his doctorate. Then he started teaching at a junior college and became the Dean of Mathematics. so do NOT wait but DO IT.
CPO Tim Dickey, any education is worth it as long as your head is in the game. If you aren't ready, then I wouldnt recommend it. You know how much energy it takes. I got two back-to-back Masters degrees and they were both worth it in the long run. I was mentally exhausted by the time I was done, but it was a good thing. If you are prepared, I'd agree that leaving money on the table is a BAD thing.
