I started having wrist pain in the fall and it has flared up a lot recently. My PCP and a hand surgeon both said they had no idea what it was, since the location of pain was inconsistent. folks with wrist injuries: how have you coped? I feel lost without a diagnosis. I stretch and I take breaks and I have ergonomic equipment, and still I ￼￼am in pain. Any advice is welcome, as are any sympathies or commiserations￼￼

Is it common to work from your home office for months. Joined 9 months ago and been doing short term projects from the office for the last 6 months. Am I missing out on the experience of being onsite?

I’m thinking about buying a new office chair with the $600 from Trump. The Herman Miller Aeron seems to get brought up often here. What about the Steelcase Gesture? Wirecutter ranks the Gesture better than the Aeron. Also, do you buy without ever sitting on? I’ve always gone to Office Max and tried chairs out before buying. Thanks!
My son is entering Kindergarten and his (great but hamstrung) public school can only offer 60-85 minutes per day for remote learning, 3 days per MONTH in-school. Just not feasible for a working mom in this industry. So I met some parents, we hired a private teacher, and I’m rolling with a 4-family homeschool pod. I’m keeping my kid in public school, hoping the curriculums can align and not go crazy. Love and strength to all moms and dads and partners out there. It’s tough - but so are we!

Has anyone had a live jury trial since covid? We could potentially have one in the next 30-45 days. I have team members who very strongly do not want to travel to urban areas and potentially be exposed for a variety of very legitimate reasons (personal and family health issues). I’m not willing to make anyone do it. Has anyone dealt with this?

From talking to students at multiple M7 schools, it seems like all of the BB/MBB/FAANG companies recruit at most if not all of the schools . So if you're planning on recruiting for one of these, is there really a major difference in career opportunities between each school? Asking because it seems like some schools are specifically known for finance vs consulting vs tech, but if the companies are all recruiting at all these schools, the differences don't seem as pronounced to me.
Trying to decide between two portfolio ops roles, both in the Bay Area: Small-ish VC firm, ~135k base + 35k bonus Medium PE firm, ~115k base + 115k bonus Which would you choose? I’m leaning towards the PE firm bc it’s more hands-on, faster learning curve, and higher TC, but the VC role seems to have a better WLB and generally sounds cooler (getting exposed to VC vs continuing in the corporate world). What do you think?
