Too late

like

Depends on the company. I got one a month ago.

I started with two different companies during the pandemic (including one this week) and they both legit just ordered me everything I’d ever want for a home office setup similar to what I’d expect if I had a desk in an industry gig.

Hey everyone - when is the most appropriate time to alert a firm you are in a relationship with another co-worker? My SO and I are currently the same rank but one of us is up for promotion to manager this year end. I should also mention we are at the same client but on different projects. We currently don’t see this being a huge conflict of interest but perhaps this is naive thinking. We only recently began dating so that’s why we’re are unsure how to best approach. Would appreciate any insight.
