Hi wonderful ladies!! I’m looking to add a little reading chair to my “home office” so I have a place to sit when I’m waiting on signature pages to come in during a closing and/or for those much needed nights off to cuddle up with a book! Any suggestions?? ❤️❤️
Curious is anyone’s firms paid for necessary work from home set up? I’m an associate (paid pennies) and feel a bit salty that I had to buy myself a desk and a chair. I’m working off a tiny laptop and I probably need a second monitor and a mouse, but I’m avoiding it because it’s another expense...
I am on H1 B single whose home office is in Manhattan. I live in the New Port area of NJ. Due to the COVID pandemic I do not think that I will have to go to office for another 4 months. Can I possibly work from a location somewhere in the fly over states for the next 4 months ? Will I have a problem with LCA s ? Has anyone had USCIS random visits at their home work location ?
Any UX/UI designers who tried switching to a more ergonomic mouse? I’ve been using apples mouse and the macbooks touchpad but I feel pain in my forearm from this. I was offered either a vertical mouse or a drawing pad + pen. Anyone who would like to share their thoughts and experiences?
Is it possible to bring a chair home? Office chair is more comfortable than my 400 dollars chair lol

Anyone else dealing with sudden eye floaters? Started getting them a month ago and got my eyes checked immediately when it started. My doctor didn’t seem worried at that point but ever since the floaters have been worsening by the day. I am wondering if it’s coming from spending too much time at the laptop in the home office without the usual breaks. Interested to see if anyone has similar issues and knows if they go away ...
Ergonomic home-office chair recommendations?
My home office is Gilbert but I am currently in the Midwest. Start date is September 7th. When should I start planning my move? HR really doesn’t know the game plan yet. I am thinking I should keep planning to move out there but everything seems to be up in the air at the moment. Also, anyone renting in the area?
What’s your home office setup?
Any desks (or desk + shelves) recommendations for home office? Ergonomic (eg having a keyboard tray), spacious, and looking decently. Doesn’t need to be cheap.

Oliver Wyman for people who live and work outside of New York State, do your w2s also say that 100% of your income is in ny, but they didnt deduct state income tax for it? How do you address this when filing taxes if you didn’t work in New York and your home office is in another state?
Does anyone have a recommendation for a product that helps with potential carpal tunnel? I realize we don’t always work in the most ergonomic environments and I need something to help, esp. w/ travel.

Show off your home office space!
Potentially dumb query here: joining a new big agency next week. Just received my laptop but nothing else was provided. Happy to wait til my official onboarding to find out what home office supplies they’ll provide or if I should purchase myself (keyboard, mouse, headphones) but would love any insight if someone’s gone through the process??

Maybe it’s only in the consulting industry, but I was working from a different city and state, that I got hired in. HR told me today that I can’t do that. I am new to the workforce, so I thought working from home, I could work from anymore, but I guess WFH and remote means to work from home in the city that you are hired in? Am I saying all this right?
How has consulting changed you as a person?

Just got promoted to Consultant after 2+ years, 9% base salary adjustment + 1.5% bonus. Does that sound right?
