Anyone have any recommendations for “high” desk chairs that are also comfortable? I’m having nerve issues in my leg and I need my legs to mostly “hang” off and be more straight (instead of bent at the knee). Already have a standing desk which is great — just need something better so I can sit without being in pain

You're looking for drafting chair. I have one from Laura Davidson that's great and looks nice.

Second the drafting chair as an option. Otherwise, the Herman Miller Arron and Steelcase Leap are my go to recs for office chairs in general. Maybe consider one of those with a foot rest that will let you elevate the feet so that they’re not as bent, but held forward rather than straight down

Thanks to you both! The foot rest is key, I didn’t think about that.

Well, it happened. I got sciatica. What lifestyle habits have you made to prevent stuff like this from happening to you. Is yoga the move? Or should I be using a standing desk as well.

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!

If all the top consulting firms made anonymous decks or gave anonymous pitches to a client, eg no branding and the client did not know which firm made which deck, do you actually think that the client would prefer MBB?  Is MBB actually coming up with better/more innovative solutions? I feel like I see many repeat or slightly altered solutions on almost all of my cases, are these really things that people at Deloitte/Accenture etc aren’t coming up with?
