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.

Is it easy to assemble?

The chair came as is.
The standing desk, I assembled it by myself In few hours, but eventually need another person to help me flip over. It’s really really nice quality! So it is heavy. (I’m a female and definitely not a handy person.)

I got a basic standing desk that fits my laptop, monitor, and has a separate slide out for keyboard. Definite game changer. ($250 CAD I think). I stand 90% of the day (though it took time to work up to it)

Yes i have the slide out keyboard tray as well! Already told few of my friends to get it. I forgot to include on the recommendation list.

Anyone else get frustrated when a manager ‘thinks’ they’re being helpful by actively telling you that a lot of the stuff you do to help manage your ADHD is unnecessary and there’s a better way to do it? Like they mean well, but even when I try to tell them I do it for a reason they think I’m just being difficult - e.g. work in a team room with headphones on, have a physical to do list, have a bunch of tabs/docs open at one time, bring a second monitor, take regular short breaks etc.

Need for travel has been one reason why some of our jobs could not be outsourced to remote delivery & low cost off-shoring. If travel is fully or >50% eliminated, it can be a real threat to management consulting as we know it. So there needs to be an “optimal ratio” of travel to client locations, home office, and WFH, to protect our consulting models. Since we need some face time with clients, and some interaction with colleagues, the optimal balance should be possible. Share your thoughts.
