Any sub $300 office chair recommendations?
Hey beautiful people,
I’m 27Y and work in tech. Unfortunately my carpal tunnel is getting worst slowly. I’m worry that I still have like 45 years more to be retired and can’t stop working because I have a f* mortgage to pay 😭 I have a super ergonomic workstation, but I know my hand needs a long rest, and I can’t do it… Does anyone relate? What do you recommend?
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.
Best WFH desk to purchase?
With the WFH grind looking permanent for the foreseeable future, I think it’s time to (somewhat) splurge on a nice desk for my office. Right now My setup is a laptop, and two 32 inch monitors. I don’t absolutely need standing desk capabilities, as I have adjustable platforms for my computer and monitors, but a nice hybrid desk would still be convenient.
Any recommendations from my fellow accountants?
Anyone have an ergonomic desk chair that they love? In the market for one and overwhelmed by all the choices.

I teach PreK in a public school. Our state allows PreK programs to nap without masks if proper ventilation is provided.

Which business career paths offer a "straightforward" path to $1M+ annual comp, beyond consulting, IB and investing?
I suspect in big tech it's possible if you climb up the corporate ladder (and potentially make much more) but chances are slim and not the "expected path" for an average performer.
Early stage startups could get you there through equity, but super high risk.
In almost every mid to large corp there are C-levels making $1M+, but again tough to get there.
