Ergonomic home-office chair recommendations?
Does anyone else’s shoulders and neck get super stiff/tired within a day of working? I stretch, foam roll everyday and have an ergonomic chair with my monitors at eye level. Not sure what else to do.
Has anyone ever slept in their home office/ their firm's office in another city? (for the entire night not just 10 minutes)
Screen sharing with an ultrawide / 4K monitor - what’s everyone’s experience like? In the past I tried to screen share with a 1440p monitor and people would complain my screen was too small so I have a secondary 1080p monitor that use exclusively for screen sharing. I’d love to move to either an ultrawide or just upgrade the 1080p monitor to a 4K one but am worried I’ll have the same issues it appearing small on the other persons end. Anyone have any suggestions?
I'm a C3 in TC resources mi home office is D.C. My salary is under 90k.. and I under paid?
Health question: Does anyone else suffer from nerve pain in their butt/hips from sitting all day? My research tells me it’s piriformis pain. It means my sit bones are irritating my butt muscle, which irritates my sciatic nerve. It can be excruciating and hurt even when I stand. I bought a fancy seat cushion for my office chair, and I have a standing desk. Nothing helps. The pain has been around for about a month. Anyone else?? What did you do?
Is it worth driving 1hour+ each way for free childcare twice per week? We are having trouble finding a quality nanny for two days (we have a great nanny on other two days). Rather than continuing to pay big $$$ for inconsistent and unreliable care, it thinking of driving to my dads house to let him take the kids while I work from his home office. May be problematic if Both me and my husband are needed in the office. Do you think it’s a good idea? Will save me $260 per day / $520 per week
Whose home office fits one of these categories?

BCG fish I need advice. Currently interviewing for a Consultant level role, they mentioned it was generalist track and it’s located in the south region. If I have experience and an affinity to work within healthcare would I be able to network and get staffed on healthcare engagements regardless of region? Don’t want to get stuck in energy work or another industry if that’s what ends up happening. Boston Consulting Group
No work travel in the immediate future on current engagement. AA Platinum Pro status going to expire if I don’t get $2,000 EQD’s by year-end. Think I’ll hit ~$1,200-$1,300 with personal travel. Worth spending $700-800 more to retain status by paying for full fare first class on 1-2 of my personal trips?
Wish I worked at Havas, mainly to get access that sweet list of current Chicago recruiters. And by mainly, I mean strictly.
How are you planning to pay for your MBA? What scholarships are good to start researching?

How has your WFH experience during the pandemic impacted (or not) your sense of loyalty / willingness to sacrifice for: - your team - your client - your firm
I feel terrible for seniors/elderly trying to get Covid vaccine appts online. I am splitting my time living between Florida and Illinois and signing up for the vaccine in either state is a nightmare for people who are not very computer savvy. I have been helping seniors who had problems figuring it out. If you have the time, reach out and help others. I have seen immense relief and a weight lifted when people get an appointment. Plus, helping others makes you feel good! 💪
For those who have roommates and contracted covid, how did you and your roommate(s) dealt with the situation sharing an apt? Did everyone just end up with covid? Looking for tips/tricks and how long the whole process took.
Found an apartment in NYC for $1800, it’s not luxurious but it’s not bad. I’m thinking if I suck it up now and spend less, it’ll be worth it while being broke at MBA. Thoughts?
Thoughts on internal audit at big 4?
