Thoughts on nomad lifestyle? My “home office” is 3 hrs from my parents. I want to see if others have done this success. I have friends that I can crash with occasionally on Thursdays, bus elsewhere.
I am lateraling because my firm has forced us back into the office 5 days a week. My office isn’t super social and we are all slammed, so going into the office consists of sitting alone in my office, just like I would at home, except I wasted an hour getting ready and commuting, am in uncomfortable clothes, and am less efficient. I am actually miserable sitting alone in a cold, drab office as opposed to hanging out in a beautiful home office with my dog. People in power: take note.
As an incoming BTA at Deloitte with an assigned home office as Atlanta. Would it be out of line for me to ask to switch offices before my start date (July)? Thinking of asking to move to Chicago.

Home office chairs under $200…any suggestions?
Struggling to decide on a new chair for my home office. I really want a cute one (and a pretty desk) but also really need the support/comfort of a real office chair. My current one is cuter and it kills my back. Has anyone actually found a cute one that’s supportive? Or do i just need to suck it up and settle for one that doesn’t match my decor?
Had a minor back injury (should heal on its own) but I don’t think sitting in an office chair all day is helping. Any ideas to make it more bearable?

When there is a huge line of people (30+) for the deli at your home office, but the lunch lady surprises you with your favorite chipotle chicken wrap already toasted and ready. #winning #goldstatus 😁
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?
Has anyone gone so far as to splurge on a tier 1 office chair like the Steelcase Gesture? If so, your honest feedback/review would be appreciated. My logic is if I spend so much of my typical work week sitting on a chair, why not go the extra mile and make it something comfortable and good for posture. Also, the cheaper chairs seem always to wear down faster than anticipated.
Has anyone ever slept in their home office/ their firm's office in another city? (for the entire night not just 10 minutes)
Does anyone else’s shoulders and neck get super stiff/tired within a day of working? I stretch, foam roll everyday and have an ergonomic chair with my monitors at eye level. Not sure what else to do.

Looking for an ergonomic desk chair. Any recommendations? Has anybody heard of the "Capisco Chair by HÅG"?
10+ YOE, experienced hire, and up for promotion to SC this year. My current project is straight up analyst work (absolutely no disrespect). I spend my days doing nothing but updating excel sheets, producing reports for slides, and doing extremely boring work (go into 100+ folders/excels and report back on who's completed what). I not only feel like this is BS, but I feel like it's going to screw up my promotion. I've never asked any analyst I have worked with to do this stuff, yet here I am...

My SO got a great job offer in Bangkok and we need to decide soon. I’ve always been very independent and never followed a partner to another city or country. Will it be bad for my career to join him even while there is a little change I can find a job in Bangkok? Not sure what to do right now. Due to covid I recently got laid off and am already not in my home country but have lived here over 7 years. Any advice? Me following him or we both try to find another job in the country we are in now.
