I'm not personally certified but I know a lot of people who are and they
recommend it highly. Then again they all work for the same company so
it may not be an entirely accurate sample. I know being Zend certified
helps a lot with a job app there - and also that their aim is for all
their developers to get certified.
Basically they treat it like a competency test of their developers but
they also use it quite a bit as a sales pitch to their clients. There
are no other Zend certifications for miles around them so they really
push the fact that they have a couple of dozen staff who are certified.
It seems to get them work too so I guess even paying for a lot of staff
the ROI is still good enough they keep pushing it internally.
