Is it possible to bring a chair home? Office chair is more comfortable than my 400 dollars chair lol
Don't get me wrong, I LOVE working form home full time. However, I have noticed I feel less relaxed after work and I think it might be because I don't have that time commuting home to listen to audiobooks and decompress. How do you 'leave work at work' when you have a home office?
any recommendations for a good / affordable home office chair? preferably one with good back support...
Show off your home office space!
Anyone else dealing with sudden eye floaters? Started getting them a month ago and got my eyes checked immediately when it started. My doctor didn’t seem worried at that point but ever since the floaters have been worsening by the day. I am wondering if it’s coming from spending too much time at the laptop in the home office without the usual breaks. Interested to see if anyone has similar issues and knows if they go away ...
Anyone have advice on what to do for travel if you have a Friday AM interview in a location other than your client and home office. Looking to travel into interview location on Thursday evening.
Some questions on Bain SEA: 1) Is staffing usually local or regional with the home office model? 2) How big is education, healthcare and consumer goods a part of the practice? Thanks!!
Do not treat Ergonomics lightly or you will suffer the consequences. Invest $1000 in that standing desk. Your body will thank you! (Or build a cheaper version. Just make sure you give ergonomics its respect.)
I've been struggling since February to get my WFH setup in a way that works for me. I live in a 2br apartment with my partner so clearing the extra bedroom of distractions (we used it as a video and tabletop gaming room) was an easy choice. Unfortunately my productivity is much lower than it ever was at the office. I don't really get distracted at home, but I'm not getting as much done either. Anyone else still stuck like this? My company doesn't provide budget for home office either :/
Need a home office chair upgrade... don’t want to spend thousands but willing to invest. Any suggestions?
When your SO wants you to finish working from bed so you can keep them company — and after messing up your home office setup to do that, you hop in bed and they fall asleep 2 min later 🙃. Now I’m too lazy to go back to my office. I should’ve at least brought my mouse. Lol.
Thinking of buying an office chair that’s comfortable for the price. Serious comments appreciative, absurd comment welcome.
Any suggestions for an ergonomic desk chair under $200? Looking for good lumbar support, adjustable arm rest, and tilt.
Your boss from their spacious home office in their well lit house: “Turn on video during meetings, it helps us stay connected.” You, sharing a shoebox with your now-unemployed roommates:
Looking for recommendations on home office purchases. We have a $300 annual benefit and I've previously purchased a bunch, including: new chair, standing desk, multiple monitors, mesh wifi, and mini white board. Also already have headphones and a Jabra conference speaker. Anything else people have found helpful?
For Deloitte, does anyone know if they are still offering $500 for work home office stuff (e.g. chair/desk)? And how to claim it? My client is permanently remote so would love to make my home office more comfortable
Are treadmill desks and cycle desks harder for data scientists to use than general consultants? I want one but I would have to forgo the second monitor and I wonder if it will be harder for me because I’m coding sometimes, which might need more control than when writing email. I might be overthinking this though.

Is it true that EY is saving on travel costs by parking motor homes outside client sites? Genius!
What do you all do after work on the side? Run a blog or startup? Side businesses? Hobbies? (inspired to do more with my free time 🙌)
The app which needs your linkedin details to find out the "truth" about your company name and still claims to be anonymous. Questionable!
Pretty sure my doorman thinks I'm an escort. I get dropped off in a fancy car at 1am wearing nice clothing :o
Do you all spend much time and money furnishing your apartment? Just moved into a new place and I'm torn. I'm never there but at the same time it'd be nice to have a cozy refuge to come home to.
PTO Tip: Take PTO the last 2 weeks of November and December. Also take the1st week of January. Unlikely you get picked up the first weeks of December and holidays aren't PTO days #thetwoforonespecial
