CCSK is it worth the time and money?

I currently hold a CISSP and CISM. Is the CCSK worth the time and money? How is it received by employers? I am potentially going to have to look for another position soon as my company is restructuring.
Do you have to retake the exam every 2-3 years as with Cisco exams?
Thank you in advance for any guidance you might provide.

    The fact that it's open book and you can take it from home, as well that it can be studied for in a week or two, and only costs a few hundred, I'd say it's worth it for the resume if you're trying to get into cloud based positions. I've seen it on a ton of job postings.

    I agree with JoJoCal19... it's inexpensive, fairly easy to study for, and I'd also mention requires no CPE. I've also seen it frequently on job posting requirements.
