Ladies, advice on sharing an office space with your spouse? I’ve been working in the dining room for months while my husband worked in our (previously my) home office.

I expressed concern that it would not work for both of us to be on calls simultaneously, which he dismissed. Desks were delivered and we started yesterday, and to be frank, it sucks.

Hi all! Could anyone help provide some insight into how good the maternity leave policy is at EY? 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.

I’ve had back pain, either in lower back or sciatic nerve for the past 8 months. I got released from physical therapy around the holidays because I was making improvements and wasn’t in pain. However, since returning to work and working busy season hours it’s difficult to stay seated for most of the day. I bought a standing desk, but was wondering if anyone has any suggestions? I need to make some serious changes as I’m 27 and should not have this much back pain so young 😢

With social security potentially running out, why couldn’t it be an option for the govt to put $5k for every baby that is born in a year into an account Invested in a govt share class S&P 500 fund. Historical average is 10%+, which would provide roughly $2.7 million for a baby born today. Eventually, this would eliminate the need for soc sec tax, and would only cost $18 Billion a year instead of several trillion a year being deposited into the trust.

My spouse has made it clear to me that they no longer support me working in biglaw and want me to find a job with more reasonable hours.
