CMA, as good as a CPA?

I am debating getting my CMA, certifed management accountant designation. It is a new term to me, and I work in finance with gaggles of CPAs. Is the CMA a recognized and respected designation?

I've decided that 2.5 years of pre-requisites is not worth it to me before then attempting a CPA. I have the professional experience to try for the CMA now. I am mainly interested in knowing how the two compare to hiring managers in finance. Is the CMA for slackers? Is the CMA organization just after my money?
Thanks hivemind. (my first ask)
