Any recommendations for a good adjustable standing desk? My apartment is small so looking for something that is <40in wide
Since quarantine started, I'm doing everything EXCEPT exercising. It's super weird. I am like just not able to do it. I cook fresh healthy meals, cleaning, reading, working, catching up on sleep, pursuing my passion & side interests, started taking supplements, got a standing desk, walk around in meetings.. but NO dedicated working out. And I can't get myself to do it! Help!

Good morning and welcome to my home office! I've got my coffee and am looking forward to responding to your questions with Zoe and Ron. I was raised by a single parent in upstate NY (far from NYC!). I've had to ask a lot of questions in my career and look forward to hearing yours!
Recently reached out to a colleague to get his opinion about his home office (thinking of relocating there). Anyway, since then we talked via messenger (and now by phone) everyday. It turns out...
if you physically worked in 1 state but your firm has your home office location in another state, do you collect unemployment in the office home location or where you physically worked?
Anyone not happy with their Autonomous standing desk? Found some sites with bad reviews. Especially around its stability when raised up how it wobbles back and forth or left/right, how loud the motors is or any other cons you have found?

I’m starting in PwC next Monday and want to know if PwC still offer the $250 budget for remote working set up? I’m thinking to buy a second monitor.
How do you arrange your monitor(s) at your home office? I am torn between having two monitors with a monitor arm as I have in my office, or having a big one monitor and use it with split screen.
How are gaming chairs different from ergonomic office chairs? Something like this, anyone have experience?

How soon you get laptop as part of virtual onboarding process for laterals these days. Also what all things they provide in welcome kit. Don't think productivity allowance will be applicable for new joiners now ( i.e. Allowence for buying laptop stand, office chair etc) Any recent joinee please share your experiences. Thank you!
Recommendations for a standing desk converter? Not a full standing deck because I already have a desk I like. Prefer something that can hold a laptop and two monitor. And any other home office improvement suggestions are welcomed, too!
Home office preference question. I am getting ready to redo the layout of my home office. One option I'm considering would have my desk facing a wall. I am wondering if anyone with this current setup has any feedback about it. I would face the wall so that I would have a better background for video conferences (am on about half the day) and also my cord situation would be cleaner.￼￼
EY OTS recruiter has reached out. Growth trajectory sounds appealing but I couldn't find any previous posts for comp at SM/D level (what's the level before partner)? What's a typical all-in range?
Interview went really well and skills were a good fit, but just got rejected without reason. Sucks when that happens. Time to find new leads!

Hi ladies! Looking to get creative & brainstorm a bit. 31 y/o female in NYC - most of my friends moved out of the city due to the pandemic. Not many are around to hang with (socially distanced of course). I tried hitting up some of my guy friends and they are always down to hang out but... I always have to make sure they remember it's platonic. ￼ Any ideas on how to make female friends during this time? I'm like...is there an app for that? ￼I am getting Zoom video catch up fatigue.
I got some good news that one of the accounting firms I associate with is starting hiring again for September 2020. If you have 3+ busy seasons with a Big 8 firm and were laid off or looking for work, feel free to message me for more details. I am paid for referrals, but I don't need the money so no hard sells😋 hoping to help our laid off accounting people. Admins feel free to delete it not appropriate.
Anyone here know anything about Unify Consulting? They reached about looking for senior roles to build their National Healthcare and Life Science vertical.
Im weighing two options with former managers that I worked with. Option 1: $114k (paycut from current salary); manager role overseeing a team of 7; great manager and work life balance /// option 2: $150k + bonus ; director role working with market leadership team so lots of visibility and if I do well can grow into more things. Work life balance should not be more than 50-60 hours a week but it was with a former micromanaging boss. I also have a toddler with most of the responsibilities
26M making $155k base and about $185k TC at a large payments firm (Visa, MC, AmEx). I’m also 1 year away from promo which will probably get me to $210-220k TC. Do you think I still need an MBA? A lot of senior leaders in my team have 1 so I’m really not sure at this point. The opportunity costs are high, but I’m well aware of the long term benefits. I’ve also already taken the GMAT and gotten a 740. I’m an Asian male and find the hurdles that we go through for admissions a turn off as well.

How to broach taking time during the day for Ramadan for myself as a junior consultant - on a COVID related engagement so I’m reluctant if it’ll be received well... Also how much time is okay to ask for?
Please help - I need opinions on men’s clothing! What are people’s perceptions of black suits vs. blue/gray? About to refresh my wardrobe now that I’ve made associate. I work in a conservative industry, so leaning on adding some black suits, especially now that I’m a but more senior and going to see more client action. I like my blues and grays, but if I wear those exclusively do I come off as less serious? Any and all view points are welcome, truly just testing the water. Ty!
