looking for a room at the beginning of the new year. My home office is by the prudential center but going to be traveling weekly. I’d like something on the not so expesive side. TIA.
For those of you teaching virtually, how is your home office organized? What are some of your must haves?
What should I expect when trying to exit into a more competitive (geographical) market? My home office is in a developing country (think non-EU/US, G20), I’m looking at Biz Ops/PM roles in tech in Western Europe. How much should I expect to be able to leverage my consulting/McKinsey background in this context?
Had an employee request a standing desk due to back problems. went through the ADA process & the employee obtained a doctor's note to support their request. However, the note was questionable. it was from an acupuncturist, on a word doc, no real signature and just said that a standing desk would prevent pain & improve their productivity, nothing about him not being able to work without it. Thoughts? Also, what do you think about having certifications from non-traditional doctors?
Curious how other firms are handling work from home subsidies, stipends, etc. since COVID has resulted in mostly remote work for many of us Anyone mind sharing what, if any stipend or reimbursement your company has offered for setting up a home office, higher speed internet to support video calls, etc.?
So, any NON standing desk recommendations? I don’t really like standing desks. I’d like something that looks decent, that has at least some storage, with a good amount of… square footage, I guess?
Any suggestions for good ergonomic office chairs? I will be seating very long hours, and Looking to spend between $250-$400
Hi guys! My H1B just got approved on PP today and I’m ecstatic! Sending good vibes to everyone waiting. I’m quarantining in a different state than home office and wondering whether if I ask lawyers to file LCA for 10/1 and it gets denied, does that revoke my H1B entirely or am I still good and can continue just in my approved location? I see people mentioning getting RFEs on LCAs and I’m confused
What office chair do people recommend? Does anyone have a home office chair they really like??
RFE on my H1 extension asked for how I split my time between client site and home office. I do Mon-Thurs travel as most consultants. Should I be more concerned as this sounds like a red flag to USCIS?
Need for travel has been one reason why some of our jobs could not be outsourced to remote delivery & low cost off-shoring. If travel is fully or >50% eliminated, it can be a real threat to management consulting as we know it. So there needs to be an “optimal ratio” of travel to client locations, home office, and WFH, to protect our consulting models. Since we need some face time with clients, and some interaction with colleagues, the optimal balance should be possible. Share your thoughts.
Share your WFH set up! I started at a new firm and got $500 WFH subsidy so trying to decide where to spend.
Herman Miller Sayl anyone ? Really need a new office chair, but a little hesitant on spending the money. I do spend so much of my time in the chair these days though, so splurging is probably OK. Just need to know if this chair is really worth it cause I sure as hell am not going through a return process.
How are the perks at Accenture? Any free dinners if working late at client or home office? How is the per diem when traveling? Accenture
Can you please share tips on optimizing home office setup to deal with ADHD and organizing emails/notes/to-dos etc. Starting a new job in 2 months and would like use this time to set myself up for success.
Anyone notice an increased soreness in the lower back after starting to use a standing desk? I didn’t have much of a problem with my regular desk.
Office chair recommendations appreciated for my home office. We have pets, so don’t want to splurge because things get destroyed and dirty quick. Ideally would like something functional, has good back support and stylish. Thanks! 🙏
Best office chair/ brands and functionality/specs you’d recommend as a Christmas present for my dad? (Who works from home but uses cheap/ not quality chair)
Looking for a desk that can easily accommodate three monitors (2 for work and 1 personnel).. any suggestions? Would also love a sit/stand desk but don’t want to spend a ton of money at the moment. Plan to invest in a nicer desk after buying a house. I’m so indecisive on what I need i need now vs. later when i have a bigger home office
What are the best ways to improve your home office space? I already have a desk and ergonomic office chair.

When the new project welcome guide recommends "taking 1 hour a day for personal time, even if it means leaving the office at 730pm to workout or eat in between work sessions" for work-life balance.
When it's 10pm on a Sunday and I'm sent last second changes I'm expected to finalize on a deck for an 8am meeting
Got to the airport at 3:15 and somehow still made my 3:45 flight. Thank you LAX gods 🙏🏼
Yahoo bringing in McK to help them decide which units to shutter. Watch out 👀 http://recode.net/2015/11/09/yahoo-hires-mckinsey-to-mull-reorg-as-mayer-demands-exec-pledge-to-stay/
When the Marriott lounge manager emails you 2 months after your last project ended to see how you're doing...😑😑
When you are in a hotel elevator with a group of people making fun of those stuck on low floors... Yup must be other consultants 😂
