READY TO WORK!!!!!!
Do most companies offer some kind of stipend for home office stuff like standing desks or coworking spaces like deskpass or wework? Is it just my company that doesn’t offer this?

ME 🐠: serious question after having gone through multiple threads on this forum and elsewhere. Can someone working in the region (ideally mid level - EM / SM / Principal) really debunk or validate the “WLB is non existent in ME” notion, particularly T1/2 Strat firms. How bad is it really? Peaks are extreme everywhere regardless of geography. However, what does an avg work week feel like? Grateful if the response is as specific and personal/ accurate as possible please. TIA 🙏🙏🙏
