Try to have a dedicated workspace with room for your computer and whatever else you need. At minimum a table/desk that is fully yours with a comfortable chair. Set up speakers, monitors, noise-silencing headphones, and whatever else you need assuming you have all this at home. No tv in the background and minimal noise (excepting roommates taking work calls, children, or pets). Work in set hours and eat at regular times. Take breaks thoughtfully and do not turn on netflix or check non-work outlets (facebook, blogs, etc.) any more than you would in a regular office workday. Think about check-ins with colleagues- you may need more scheduled meetings to balance the lack of office interaction and make sure you’re still communicating smoothly. This may be a bit of a ramble but I hope it helps!

My bank makes you fill out a form if you want to work in the office for each individual day. It’s largely empty from what I hear. What are the risks if I were to go in and “borrow” an office chair for my new apt? How about a monitor?

I'm working at a European Branch of EY-Parthenon (Strategy) and was wondering if US companies might care about the branch location.
