Anyone not happy with their Autonomous standing desk? Found some sites with bad reviews. Especially around its stability when raised up how it wobbles back and forth or left/right, how loud the motors is or any other cons you have found?
So many of us have been working from home for almost 10 months in 2020 and we (employees) are not able to deduct home office expenses from our taxes?! Anyone can elaborate please?
To those who started at PwC recently, did you get any PwC swags? Also does PwC give you an extra monitor for home?
Any recommendations for a home office desk? I m not into standing desks, but I would really love a L shaped. Let me know if anyone loves their desk and can offer a recommendation
What’s the one thing in your home office that you was a game changer other than the obvious (laptop, table, chair etc.)?

if you physically worked in 1 state but your firm has your home office location in another state, do you collect unemployment in the office home location or where you physically worked?
Home office preference question. I am getting ready to redo the layout of my home office. One option I'm considering would have my desk facing a wall. I am wondering if anyone with this current setup has any feedback about it. I would face the wall so that I would have a better background for video conferences (am on about half the day) and also my cord situation would be cleaner.￼￼
For home office use, Herman Miller Aeron or Herman Miller Embody? Looking for recommendations.
Any one else with sore bums due long work hours during pandemic? What ergonomic chair or cushion helped you get relief?
Has anyone used a whiteboard top standing desk? Are they durable? Useful? I see a couple of companies provide this (including Jarvis). Seems like a great concept but i am skeptical because I don’t see any YouTube reviewers using this, making me thing they might not be that popular.
Any fish on here that currently putting in notice: how are your firms handling if you have personal possessions still in the office? I have a filing cabinet in my home office where I keep a spare pair of heels and cardigan. Obviously didn’t expect to get a new job during quarantine or I would have taken these items home. Have firms made exceptions for you to go in the office and grab these items? Or offer that you can come back in a few months and pick up the possessions?
Since quarantine started, I'm doing everything EXCEPT exercising. It's super weird. I am like just not able to do it. I cook fresh healthy meals, cleaning, reading, working, catching up on sleep, pursuing my passion & side interests, started taking supplements, got a standing desk, walk around in meetings.. but NO dedicated working out. And I can't get myself to do it! Help!
Looking for recommendations for an office chair, under $300aud. Current use a gaming chair and it's ok for s bit but hurts for a full day of sitting.
In my late 20's, but I've lived in my current city (nonUS) my whole life. I was really looking forward to moving to NYC and landed a job there earlier this year although I'm still WFH and not in the US yet. A recruiter reached out to me for a new role but it would be in my old city. I'd be pretty fine with both roles themselves. But the NYC one would pay about 140$ 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?
How do you tell your admin that how they talk to you isn’t okay with you (condescending and rude) without making it worse?
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.
Maybe I have this completely wrong but it looks like NY (state + city) taxes on bonus are 18% now? Combined with federal and fica etc, that's almost half my bonus. Where th is all the money going!? 🤷🏾😡🤬

Got almost 8y exp at a B4 in consulting. Kinda bored of my work cos I feel I’m not learning new technical skills. But I’m growing more into SM role. Should I seek a lateral move or stay & climb up?
Advice please! I'm scheduled to roll off my current (surge) project at the end of this month. The project is heavy in manual government processes, but my manager is offering to let me lead a workstream because our scope has grown so much and the client needs our help. However, there's another big, super relevant project where I'd get project experience doing analytics, but I likely wouldn't get ownership over anything. Do I extend my current project or try to roll onto the new one?
