It all really depends on what that ROI gets you.

I was in a very similar situation in that I got a master’s to ensure that if I changed employers I could get a job at the same level as the one I had (which on paper I lacked the quals for but had worked up to get to). I picked my program based on time and cost, and while I ended up not leaving my current employer (personal circumstances changed and now I prioritize the flexibility they give me over the benefits that other places might offer), I’m still glad that my degree offers me a bit more flexibility should a change be wanted/required.
