Not saying I wouldn't put a CCIE written on my resume (especially if I was in the process of getting ready to take the lab), but my boss did tell me he hates when he sees that.

Definitely do not put CCIE written on your resume. I can't count the amount of hiring managers I've heard ranting about that. Once you do pass it and have your lab scheduled, it is appropriate to mention that in an interview or cover letter though. IE, "In addition, I have my CCIE lab exam scheduled for next month"

No, the Written isn't a certification by itself. There isn't an "all-but-lab" cert.
The Written isn't an easy test to pass legitimately, but my boss and I do find it easy to spot the dumpers. An in-depth tech screen will typically reveal them. We put candidates through a tech prescreen conf call, white board design session in the office if they pass the prescreen, as well as a troubleshooting lab that's 8 questions long (CCNP level).

This is why I've grown to appreciate the certification structure Juniper uses, every exam you pass gives you some recognition for what you've accomplished.

Coming from someone who has done a TON of interviews for the second largest telecommunications company in the world I would put it on your resume. In all honesty, I haven't come across a single person that has rolled their eyes at it. In addition, it is going to get you more visibility since head hunters are going to target on those key words. That being said, if you put it on your resume you better be able to back it up. I don't have the CCIE lab done, it is something I want to do but when I see it on a resume, I immediately start gearing up the technical grill questions.

Also, I did not once claim to know your political beliefs, but the overall state of residence may as well have a dictator. LOL

This is a professional forum. I don't come here to debate or deal with politics or mock someone's state because I don't agree with what I interpret as its ideological beliefs. It's unprofessional to say the least and this is Techexams - not Redstate or MSNBC.
You have professional points I agree with and others I don't which I may respectfully disagree with but it's relative to your experience. Also put the thread in context of the OP. Look at some of the threads he's started and remember that he recently passed the CCNP. If he were to pass the CCIE Written in the next month and start listing that on his resume, I don't think that would fare well for this particular individual.

I don't get why hiring managers would rant over a candidate listing an exam in their resume. What exactly bothers them about it?
