I started having wrist pain in the fall and it has flared up a lot recently. My PCP and a hand surgeon both said they had no idea what it was, since the location of pain was inconsistent. folks with wrist injuries: how have you coped? I feel lost without a diagnosis. I stretch and I take breaks and I have ergonomic equipment, and still I ￼￼am in pain. Any advice is welcome, as are any sympathies or commiserations￼￼
There is an echo when I speak on calls due to my home office being relatively empty. I added a carpet but hasn’t made as big an impact as I would like. Any tips
Is ur partner’s sense of cleanliness and tidiness a deal breaker? My partner maintains his hygiene but everything else around him is in a state of messiness - he would finish a beer and leave it on the desk. Our home office is full of cans, food container, random trash that my partner does not put away. It stresses me out because his habits make me feel that I will always have to be the one to clean after him...he’s the one with the busier job (he’s a principal at a big 3 consulting firm).
I've come to realize that I spend a lot of time sitting cross legged when I work and the home office chair I have is too narrow to accommodate. Anyone have a great home chair that works for crossed legged sitting?

After all of the COVID19 stuff is over, do you think our industry will change how it operates? More telecommunication/video conferencing at home office. Still fly to sell work and important meetings.
What’s your home office?
Let’s talk office set ups. I am looking at a Uplift standing desk as my big splurge because I have back issues, and the room I work in has horrible lighting so I’m considering some sort of selfie light ring type thing that I can clip to my monitor. Anyone have feedback on either the desk or a light they like, or any other ergo friendly home office hacks you’ve found helpful?
How hard is it to change home office location? I am based out of Ohio but I wanna move to a different state. What factors do I need to consider in order to convince my partners.
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!

Ergonomic home-office chair recommendations?
Should I stay at a company I know I like culture-wise when my manager said they will try to promote me, but with no guarantee. Or should I take a job offer I was given with a nice raise, but is in consulting at Slalom. I have not worked in consulting before. There is no travel with Slalom, but the idea of being the new person all the time isn’t too appealing. Less pay and known culture, or more pay unknown job satisfaction?

How do I ask for a salary increase when I’ve worked for less than a year? New incoming analysts are getting paid about 10k more than my current comp. My mentor who’s a senior manager even knows that my cohort is being underpaid....
When I worked for PwC I once saw the son of a PwC Partner get fired for throwing his chair at his senior in the audit room.... So I guess the nepotism only guarantees you a job at PwC - you still have the difficult task of not attempting to physically assaulting co-workers to keep your job.
