Can I turn my computer into a different office in my region than my home office? My last day will be a couple days after Christmas and I don’t want to have to go back just to bring my computer back

At the worst you could ship it back. They can deal with it like that.

Yes you can. IT Service is National and they don’t care at which office one is based vs. return the pc BUT make sure to tell Talent/HR in advance .

Ask - it is very likely that you can. Especially in the same region

Ask if you can turn it in this week.

Would that mean my last day being paid would have to be this week?

Will the firm be open that day? We’re closed

Just mail it back. They shouldn’t care

So finally got my standing desk set up. Got a birch butcher block from Homedepot,stained and gave it a few coats of poly. But its been a few weeks and the smell of the poly is strong when I'm near the desk. I can't stand it, does it eventually go away? Anyone have expertise on this? Tia!

About to pull the trigger on an uplift v2 standing desk and I live in a 710sqft apt. I'm considering either 48x30, which fits perfectly in a nook beside my couch, or do I push it and get 60x30? It won't fit in the nook, but will still fit in-between couch and the wall. Nervous about moving into a smaller apt at some point and being stuck with a large desk.

I’ve been proposed an exit as Product Owner at a real company, not a consulting one. Staff seems nice, good culture, good salary (less than consulting but well), BUT I would have to move countries for that job and start a new life. I’ve also been proposed a Manager position at a consulting company in my home city, with potential of bigger salary thanks to bonuses. Culture seems good... But I’m sure it’s gonna be a hell lot of work. Which one would you take? Should I exit and never look back?
