Thumbs up Company Time for the New Exams

I am curious if any of you have had discussions yet at work about the impact of the new exams on study time and pay raise. For my company, they give 30 hours of study time per hour of exam. Since the Predictive Analytics exam is a 5-hour project, that would of course be 150 hours, but that seems overkill. I doubt it will be more difficult than the other exams, just different. Also, adding PA and SRM may cause a bend in pay structure, depending on the company.

My manager asked if I had heard yet what other companies are doing since we try to stay competitive. Any thoughts?

I spoke with the person who oversees our company student program. We don't have the revision to the hours/bonuses/raises plan out yet, but I was told it exist and was being finalized. Then I was told I can expect to know the updates sometime in February.
I am curious to see how the PA section is handled as well.
