Are treadmill desks and cycle desks harder for data scientists to use than general consultants? I want one but I would have to forgo the second monitor and I wonder if it will be harder for me because I’m coding sometimes, which might need more control than when writing email. I might be overthinking this though.

How much does an EAP psychologist make in Sydney? I feel that while I’m making $90k, it’s only about $45/hr which is a joke when the standard session prices are around $200/hr. And my company charges customers upward of $250/hr but only pays a small fraction. I’ve been with the same company for 3yrs and want to negotiate higher pay but want to know what others offer. Thank you
