Tax Saving strategies- how do you save on your taxes? I max out HSA, 401k contribution, FSA. My wife does some 1099 work, so we are able to write off home office expenses
I have several the large Toblerone chocolate bars in my work desk and usually get through one a week. More if it’s a rough week. I know this can’t be good for me but I am really loving my life right now.
Any recommendations for improving posture (OTHER than an ergonomic chair)? I’m slouching a lot while working and want to know what products or tips have worked for these long WFH days.
My posture is absolute shit. Tried getting a standing desk and it's great when I stand, but on days I want to sit I can't touch the ground in my chair and feel like a child just to be level.
Starting a new remote job where I'm offered $1k reimbursement for purchases towards my home office. I know this is a fairly common perk so I was wondering what everyone here has used that money towards. $1k could afford a couple great monitors or a pretty nice desk. What have you guys upgraded/bought?
Not from NYC but could use some perspective. Just joined a new esg pe fund in New England. I’m working remotely, about 150 miles away from the home office. I’m having a hard time staying focused and getting any information or instructions from the founders... it’s my dream to work in pe but is this weird struggle really worth it?
Well, guess I will be using my standing desk…
Just had a pilonidal cyst/abscess drained today. Causes: sitting all day (aka working). Who's had one and can you claim workers comp? or at least get a damn standing desk?
I am a field marketer. I travel and cover 12 states. HQ is across the US on the east coast. My manager put a surprise calendar invite twice now to go to home office without consulting dates to see if we were available. I stood up and asked to be included on available dates and said I will attend virtually but asking me to be away for 4 additional full days away from my family without asking me is not OK. I already travel a lot and this boundary is super important to me. Am I right or wrong?
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?

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!
So just throwing this out there. Can agencies give us WFH bonuses to cover the cost of setting up a home office? I had to invest quite a hefty sum for a desk, office chair and upgrade my wifi connection. Also, can we deduct our work space rent area for tax purposes? Every little bit helps!
Is it true that your home office is going to be an important factor for exit ops? Like working in a city like New York would look so much better than a smaller city? Is Austin, Texas considered a good location?
I’m right on space — what is a comfortable office chair that is more compact? I’ve seen a lot of good recaps here for ones I think will take over my tiny office area:)
(also up for suggestions on desks!)
2018 Home Office Tax Deduction: Can anyone explain for me what (eg, limits, calculations) has changed for how I can write my home office off taxes for 2018 with the new tax laws? Please & thank you.
Home office revamp recommendations:
1. Autonomous standing desk: honestly the best desk ever! Order arrived in 3 days, even better quality than I imagined. I got the L shape one, fits 3 monitors and a laptop comfortably on one side. Now I stand while taking calls. I wish I had it last year during busy season. Oh I have a promo code if anyone is interested: R- 200les
2. Steelcase gesture office chair: same chair as PwC office.
Have tech WFH funds to spend, how should I use them with return to work in mind? Already have external monitors, wireless mouse/keyboard, & standing desk. Anyone have anything else cool/useful? Thinking portable monitor?
What are your thoughts on prioritizing WLB early on in your career? I realized from internships I need personal time for socializing and reading, and anything over 40 hours is detrimental to that. If I’m hoping to be a high earner later in life, am I getting in the way of this?
Any interest in a WhatsApp group chat?

Be gentle with me :)
I feel defeated. I’ve been in conversation with an employee from Deloitte since March about joining the team. They helped me with my CV & writing a value proposition. Told me job posting would come out august/September. Kept in touch with them all summer but now haven’t heard back since I’ve followed up in September. I’ve tried reaching out and networking with so many others too. I would really love a new job, especially on the higher ed team at Deloitte but not sure what to do anymore 😔 tips?

I’ve been telling my boss repeatedly for over a year that the workload I’m being given is infeasible by one person for xyz reasons, and I’ve offered abc solutions that have gone unheard. I get the same criticism every month, and I advocate for myself with reasons and solutions/resource requests each time. No changes, just disrespect. Today they’re presenting me with a PIP and I’m feeling so defeated. I know it’s time to look for a new job, but any advice on keeping my head up until then?
