Favorite office chair?
This week I started a listen through my entire record collection from front to back. I’ll be doing this on workdays when I am in my home office. Did it a few years ago. Collection has grown a lot since then. But I’m not doing comedy and spoken word this time. Too hard to work to those. I expect it to take 4-6 weeks at least. Depending on how many calls I have.
For those of you teaching virtually, how is your home office organized? What are some of your must haves?
Good morning, all. I look forward to chatting today. I thought I would open our conversation with a photo of my home office, which has gotten a lot more use in the last two weeks than ever before.
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.
Does Infosys reimburse Internet bills for resources who are working from home?? Also does they provide any extra miney to setup home office, like for chairs & tables?
Does anyone have a good home office chair recommendation? Looking for something ergonomic preferably under $250.
Does anyone have an Eames Soft Pad Chair (Executive Height) by Herman Miller in their home office (or firm office)? Would love feedback, especially versus the popular Aeron.
My org invested in a app for fitness, and I’m loving it. They clearly take our wellness seriously! Would it be appropriate to ask for a standing desk? Or a contribution to a standing desk at this point? (I have my eye on a under desk treadmill)
Hello RSM coworkers! I am thrilled to be moving to RSM into a Scheduler roll. I just found out yesterday and want to be as prepared as possible in the next steps. So here are my questions. How long does the background study take? I'm guessing admin staff have a study that is faster and less complicated than someone in Tax ect. When training at home what did you need that wasn't supplied by RSM? My home office is well stocked but I want to be as prepared as possible. Thanks in advance!
Just landed a full time gig, looking to get some furniture so I’m not working on my parents’ kitchen table during this remote period. Any recommendations for desks and chairs? I’m hoping to find something that’s easy to assemble and break down for when I need to move, and something that won’t cost an arm and a leg. I know everyone has a different kind of setup that works for them. I currently have a laptop, drawing pad, second monitor, and a desk riser.
Hello VTeamers, How to apply/claims for furniture & accessories allowance provided as part of Verizon work forward home office setup? I joined VZ 3 weeks back and I searched Vzweb but couldn't find the link or any articles. TIA.
Does anyone have a minimalist treadmill for use with a standing desk that you can walk on during meetings and the noise isn’t loud/distracting? (obviously if you’re on camera and walking people will be able to tell) Brand/model reccos appreciated!
Hello, Fishies! I’m thrilled to get to spend time with you today! It’s still dark in San Diego, and I’m sitting here in my home office in my PJs, armed with coffee, and ready to dig in. Let’s go!
I am planning to buy some furniture and got to know that there is some kind of allowance in DUSI where they reimburse for things like work desk, chair. What else can be reimbursed in that? My joining in DUSI is in a couple of weeks.
Recently reached out to a colleague to get his opinion about his home office (thinking of relocating there). Anyway, since then we talked via messenger (and now by phone) everyday. It turns out...
As far as reviews go- does everyone check Glassdoor and indeed before applying? I’ve had a couple companies reach out to me but they’re a 3.6 or 3.4 and doesn’t really spike my interest. I usually try and work for companies that are at least a 4.0 so I have some sanity left at the end of the day.
Recs for long weekend in DC

California is the venue. We recently served Trial Subpoenas on a number of medical doctors. Two just responded that they will not show up and will not sign an on-call agreement. Thinking of requesting a bench warrant when they fail to appear. Thoughts?
How many points? Platinum Elite Marriott member- Delayed flight got me to the hotel at ~2:00am. I try to check in and was told they have my reservation, but there is no room available. They “tried to contact me” but also told me I have no phone number on file (never been told this, I believe it is, plus my email is there). Ended up literally having to call nearby hotels with the front desk lady and walking to a Marriott with our luggage .5 mile away. Had to pay double the original booked rate
Does working at a McKinsey subsidiary or specialist practice open doors similar to working in generalist consulting there? Examples include Orpheus, Finalta, QuantumBlack and other acquired companies. Can you work there for 1-2 years and benefit from a halo effect that helps you enter industry more easily?

Is it common to go from big 4 (strategy arm) to Investment Banking post MBA? And if you’ve done so, how has your experience been? I’m going to Wharton and want to extract as much as I can - meaning get a job that I couldn’t have gotten without Wharton and leverage Wharton’s “finance” brand. Right now IB seems to be the only path that meets these requirements but want to hear from others!
Thoughts on best 13” PC laptop under $1000? Curious to hear what people are buying/using for school - looking for something lightweight!

Are there any registered pharmacy technicians here that transitioned to hospital pharmacy before obtaining their certification? I'm planning to schedule my test within the next couple months. I've been trying to leave retail and nothing seems to stick. I'm in Florida if that matters.
I think I have a drinking problem. I go big and I go hard when I drink. I want to throw in the towel and just be a sober person but happy hours and *do I like drinking with this person* are such a big part of our industry, especially internally. How do we balance? 😔
