@D1: I saw an assignment posted once in Anchorage. They were asking someone to relocate there for 18 months. A bit aggressive.

There are a couple people in our office who live 150-200mi away. They're present on Fridays about as often as the folks who live a 15 min walk away

Hello RSM coworkers! I am thrilled to be moving to RSM into a Scheduler roll. I just found out yesterday and want to be as prepared as possible in the next steps.

So here are my questions.

How long does the background study take? I'm guessing admin staff have a study that is faster and less complicated than someone in Tax ect.

When training at home what did you need that wasn't supplied by RSM? My home office is well stocked but I want to be as prepared as possible.

Thanks in advance!

Getting tired of my kitchen chair. I’m 195cm (6ft5) and need something ergonomic. I’ve heard mixed cases for/against gaming chairs. I’ve also heard Herman Miller is the way to go on the office end. My budget is $500 as of now. Any suggestions? Tall fish perspectives appreciated!

I’m a petite woman - 5ft. Looking for an ergonomic work chair with good back and neck support, also easy on the bum. Have been working for 12 hours a day everyday since March. Paid $600 for a work chair (back in April) which gives me amazing back and neck support but my bum has started hurting so bad now. 🥺
