Looking for an office chair and am pretty settled on getting the remastered Aeron. Anyone know how to get a new one at a discount? Note: Buying used voids the 12-year warranty.
I went back to the office this month (3/4 days per week) and it’s been a positive experience. Plus it seems that some partners who are going in appreciated it. But the office is a 15 min drive away for me. Some people need to commute an hour plus to be there. Will they be at a disadvantage if they actually try to take advantage of hybrid WFH in the future?

Struggling to decide on a new chair for my home office. I really want a cute one (and a pretty desk) but also really need the support/comfort of a real office chair. My current one is cuter and it kills my back. Has anyone actually found a cute one that’s supportive? Or do i just need to suck it up and settle for one that doesn’t match my decor?

Just wanted to say, I visited Atlanta last weekend with some friends and the black excellence was such an unexpected and welcoming culture shock. From the min I landed I was not a minority in literally any location we went to. It made me realize that there’s a deferent relaxing feeling when you truly blend in.
After the whole diversity and inclusion push from my firm, I decided to try to create a Jewish group especially given all the anti semitism in the world. I sent an email to HR in beginning of august. It’s now almost September and no response (this includes multiple follow ups). They say it usually take 1-2 days to respond to emails. Hypocrisy?
