I have a spot on my thumb and index finger worn so smooth it hurts all the time.

Might be your mouse. Try an ergonomic mouse

Make sure your forearms are going down instead of being parallel or god forbid, up. I also recommend a vertical mouse for the time being. Or if you’re swimming in it, an Mx master

Try this. Sit in a chair and rest your hands on your thighs comfortably. Try to find the most optimal hand placement where you experience zero strain. Where is your thumb? It should be facing towards you going up. Then think of your palm placement when you use your computer mouse. Where is your thumb now? Definitely not up I’d imagine. Add that with the forearm being in an unnatural position/angle for long periods of time and you have a recipe for disaster.

In my late 20's, but I've lived in my current city (nonUS) my whole life. I was really looking forward to moving to NYC and landed a job there earlier this year although I'm still WFH and not in the US yet. A recruiter reached out to me for a new role but it would be in my old city. I'd be pretty fine with both roles themselves. But the NYC one would pay about 140$ TC (not sure about bonus yet, this is a guess), and the non-NYC one would be maybe $25-30 more. Is the $ worth the city sacrifice?

Honest question. How is A&M’s transaction/capital markets advisory business model competitive from a client perspective? For example, if I was a CFO considering an IPO, the main reason for going to a non-Big 4 for the IPO readiness work would be to save on fees. If word got out that the rates I was quoted were to fund the team’s 6 figure bonuses, you better believe I’d put more pricing pressure on the firm to slash their rates. Asking because I’m genuinely considering applying to A&M.
