Hi all - looking for stats and help on what a St Consultant level III gets paid here in London? (My understanding is that levels are indicative of the cost of living of your home office and thus a higher level guarantees a higher pay). With 80K I feel like I’m being severely low-balled. I’m transferring from a US office.
I’m a noogler with a $1000 wfh stipend burning a hole in my pocket. itching for a 4K monitor and/or apple air pods max since I’m in a noisy area. Am I being reasonable? Or am I crazy?
What office chair do you use? Max $500 please 😂
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?
Folks my back is suffering wfh. Can anyone recommend a good yet economical work/office chair. Need back and preferably head support
Hi all! Looking for a roomie in Culver City. New Yorker getting into the startup life and transitioning from data engineering to data science.
Looking at the Harlow for a 3 bedroom, want to convert the extra room into a home office: https://www.thewestsidecollection.com/harlow-culver-city-ca/
If you’re interested in the area lemme know!
I know I have to look for a job but I really don’t want to. Waiting it out until I can start a new job somewhere else that’s not my cluttered home office.
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.
I didn't know I was supposed to file taxes in multiple states when I started and honestly thought that I only needed to report the hours associated with my home office for revenue recognition/billing
Silly question- but how do you work from home? I could do it in small amounts and with small projects with simple things. But I can’t do any type of excel work or testing on my small laptop. I’m thinking about setting up an office for two screens and a standing desk. Would work reimburse that? (If they are primarily WFH)
Would you ever work out of a co-working space over your regular office or home office? Why/why not?
Does anyone have home office chair recommendations? Not sure what criteria I should be thinking about but I work long hours and prefer arm rests
I want to dispose my office chair and i live in Newton. Anyone knows if i can leave it curbside or where i can check for the details?
Finally caving and getting a standing desk from autonomous. Anyone got any discount codes?
Have new analyst on the team with an MBA and project experience. After working with them for 2 months it’s apparent that there are 0 consulting skills (excel, outlook, PowerPoint) and they freeze up even on internal calls. They are young and coachable, and I offered to put time into that. However at a company event they made no effort to get to know the team and chose to stick to their familiar colleagues in their home office. I’d like to ask for a new resource but interested in feedback.
Have you found using a standing desk increase your productivity? How else do you increase your productivity? I am so distracted all the time
Design question for my work from home ladies - how did you decorate around a standing desk, large monitors, etc?
I find that with a large monitor there’s not so much I can put on the wall without having the monitor partially cover it - especially when the desk moves.
I don’t mind if the decor is covered when I’m using it standing, but want it to look nice when it’s lower down. Also find that with the monitor/laptop another square on the wall is too much of the same shape - any inspiration?
Can anyone provide a good office chair recommendation? Looking to spend somewhere between $200-$300, but willing to look into pricier options if it is really worth it!
How long should you typically wait after a rejection to apply again? Been interviewing for a few months and gotten 3 offers and many rejections from places I’d prefer to work at. How long should I wait before applying again?
Help, I’ve been in this job for a month now, but I still don’t know what my real responsibilities are. There’s clear signs of favoritism where someone whos newer than me is being given important responsibilities because he is an IT genius. While I was completely neglected. The CEO who acts as our boss, even asks a more tenured employee for updates on tasks that I AM doing. Something’s not right. This is the first time I felt like I’m being downright outcasted. I hate to confront.Should I quit?
Did any one received email after HR discussion today?
HR said that I will receive email but haven’t heard anything yet.

We just experienced our first meltdown with 2 kids under 2. We scheduled back to back dr appts for me and our toddler so my husband had to drive and bring everyone. However my appt was running late so my husband had to also bring the baby to the toddler appt. Baby was fussy and cried. Toddler decided to be clingy, did not want to walk and wanted to be carried. My poor husband had to wheel a crying baby and while trying to balance a toddler throwing a tantrum to the doctor’s office where they...
