Certified Research Administrator (CRA) - is the certification worth it?

I work in research administration and I'm interested in getting my CRA. But, I don't have a good sense of how much value this certification adds in terms hireability, pay, and (ugh) prestige. If you're a CRA, was it worthwhile? If you decided not to pursue it, why not? If you're a hiring manager, does this certification ever affect your hiring decisions? (I don't plan to leave my current employer anytime soon, so assume I won't be job searching for at least 5 years.)
