I’ve set up the dual screens and home office with cable TV since going remote. Don’t know how I went so long on a single laptop screen.

What are some of your “C19 home office essentials” you’ll have a hard time giving up when/if the travel grind returns?

My KVM switch that I use to switch my monitor from my work machines to ps4 during calls.

You don’t carry a portable monitor with you when you travel?

We get put up in some small spaces too but I dgaf lol. I need 2 monitors wherever I go.

I used to have a TV tuner card in my desktop and could watch tv while using the computer. That was awesome.

I’ll second the KVM, they’re over priced for what they do but they rock.

These days I’m sitting in a couch while my laptop is connected to my TV and my wireless keyboard and mouse are on a TV tray in front of me. The couch folds back which means that I’m pretty chill on calls.

Other perks that I have not made use of but others can. Put a mini fridge next to you. Fill with food an beverages of your choice. You can also get USB coasters to keep drinks warm.

If you can get a dock for your laptop. If you have a modern slim one (with few ports) this gives you a lot more options, in terms of more monitors and USB ports.

I have offers from both United Health Group and Atlassian for a Senior Financial Analyst position. Similar Comp (Atlassian slightly higher due to stock options). Coming from another healthcare company as a SFA, does anyone have experience at either company? In the long term, does Atlassian look better on a resume/work experience due to the Tech/Software space? Seems like their culture is great, but a much higher work load due to the nature of the company. Thanks! Happy to answer DM's too

The idea presented itself a few months ago when I was recruited by an agency slightly larger than my own. I made to the top three but was not selected for the position. Any leads advice welcomed!

Hi Guys ,
Happy Diwali to all fishes ..
Just a thought, wanted to discuss with you all.
Why do companies force us to work from office , when work can be done from anywhere. Some companies allow work from home but they need to work from their base location (Bangalore, Pune , Hyderabad) , do you also think there is some political pressure on corporates to ask their employees to stay in these cities so that locals can ask for whatever rent they want ?
