SM on my team says he is planning to require my team to start fully coming and working from our home office Monday-Friday. I find this unnecessary given that the firm hasn’t yet required us to fully be back in office. Should I push back? Advice?

Anyone use and recommend the kneeling ergonomic chair? Debating ordering one because my home office chair is really uncomfortable!
If a firm sent you free tech for WFH (monitors, docking station, keyboard, and mouse), are you obligated to return it once you leave? Obviously will return the laptop, but was wondering if it’s normal/expected to keep everything else. Insights appreciated! (Relatedly: laterals, do your new firms send you stuff or give you a stipend for your home office? Assuming at least partial remote for now)
Trying to avoid paying an accountant, can I actually write off home office space/mileage if I was just permalancing for 3 months last year? Shouldn’t the 7 months of W2 take care of this 1099 shit?
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.
Looking for an adjustable standing desk, and don’t want to shell out $700+ for the Fully Jarvis and other models. Would love to get your recommendations! Looking for something that isn’t too big, looks nice, and has room for a laptop and single monitor.
Any standing desk suggestion for 2 people for WFH? We have four monitors in total. Budget desks will be preferable.

Got offers out of undergrad in tech consulting from PwC and Deloitte. Accenture interview next week. Thoughts on which one I should go for?
I can honestly say that working from home these last few years has been the best thing that’s happened to my career as a producer. I never realized how distracting being in an office was. Now, I actually can focus on bidding, scheduling, reviewing contracts, and all of the stressful parts of production WITHOUT having to factor in code switching and a commute. I left my agency producer role for a fully remote producing role and I’m just….thrilled. Anyone else refuse to go back to office? 😩

Career advice: I became an HR mgr/BP relatively early on in my career so have 7 years BP exp. and 9 overall. I work in pharma as a Sr. BP/manager now. I’d like to make a move into an AD or higher role but seem to only get consideration for lateral moves. Not sure if it’s because I don’t have enough experience or if I’ve never had direct reports? How did you make that first jump? I’d need to relocate for anything at my current org which is not possible for me right now. Thanks for insights!
