Looking for a treadmill for a standing desk. But also want one that I can run on. I would like walking distances to go up to 4-4.5 and running up to 8-9 mph. Would be great to have one of those that the rail and be moved and the treadmill placed under the desk for walking. Incline would be great. Any suggestions or is it technically not feasible to have all of this in one machine?
I have a doctors note for a standing desk due to back pain. Is this something firms are expected to cover? HR policy doesn’t mention it.
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.
Looking for an office chair and am pretty settled on getting the remastered Aeron. Anyone know how to get a new one at a discount? Note: Buying used voids the 12-year warranty.

Has anyone switched to a standing desk? Do you feel more productive? Was it worth it? Did you switch at the office or at your home?
Do you add people on Linkedin immediately after you have connected with someone in the firm (via zoom meetings ofcourse) to give intros etc.... Does it look unprofessional? I meant you working for that firm and you are connecting with people internally to get a project etc.
Is it okay to share private audit clients name during an interview? It’s for industry roles.
Interviewed for a senior technical position at a startup (about 50 employees). During the interview the CEO spent about 20 minutes answering my questions. There was no discussion about my technical skills or experience. They emailed that they are working on an offer. Is the interview process a redflag? The only technical screening that happened was the HR lead's 10 minute phone call.
What if you could convert miles into monthly utilization? What would be the exchange rate?
I’m a first year and fucked up big time. The client doesn’t know about this but a senior associate was furious. I know it’s 100% my fault but no one above me actually reviewed my work bc everyone was so busy. But then I found out the senior gave a rant about how I fucked up to another colleague. When I apologized to him, he was really salty. Since then, my heart drops every time I see his email bc I’m too scared. He is usually pretty emotional and his instructions are vague, which doesn’t help.
I’ve worked really hard this year and just found out that I am getting a nice promotion and it also happens to be my birthday soon! Not sure how I should celebrate? Or buy? Any recommendations?!
I recently started at a larger software company as an AE. As I’m getting more into the process, I’m finding things odd. Like, cold calls and emails are metrics I’m judged on more than closed won business. I know that’s part of the job but it seems strange I’m judged on it so heavily. And, I seem to be the first real outside AE hire as everyone else seems to have been promoted up from SDR roles, including all of my direct management. I’m questioning if I made the right move. Stick it out or look?

Is there a status challenge with United that KPMG is offering? I was remote last year and lost my gold status and have been traveling group 3 :(
I can't stop being angry and disappointed in myself. I'm on PTO and decided to take care a few of the household chores. I multi-task all of the time and can't help it. I forgot that I turned on the water to fill up the ultility sink in the basement and ran back upstairs to do something else. Well 2 hours later as I turn on the shower, I wonder why it's not getting hot. Then I remembered the basement. Obviously it overflowed and I had .25 inches of water on the floor (concrete) Cont
I‘m planning to move to Bangkok or Kuala Lumpur temporarily for 1-2 years working for a MBB consultancy. I’m struggling to decide which city to choose. Salary seems to make little difference. How would you decide and why? (for context: moving alone from France, late 20th, m)
