Making himself at home in my home office!
Please share your “must-have” home office chair. I need to replace mine and want something a heck of a lot more comfortable than my current one. Must have wheels and arm rests.
Decide to Start this bowl after seeing 1000 post asking about ergonomic chairs. The reason your back hurts is your sitting to much.
Applying for secondments vs applying direct.
What are the pros and cons of applying via your home office or direct online application? Can you do both or does it go against you?
Do any of you use either a Uplift V2 or VARI standing desk? I need a new desk and was considering one of these. I’m thinking either the Whiteboard Desk from Uplift or the Reclaimed “Wood” from VARI. Anyone with experience w/ either company and their products?
Pregnant with my second and my oldest will be 23 months when baby 2 arrives. What do I need to get with a second (second monitor, double stroller, what else?) TIA!
This week I started a listen through my entire record collection from front to back. I’ll be doing this on workdays when I am in my home office. Did it a few years ago. Collection has grown a lot since then. But I’m not doing comedy and spoken word this time. Too hard to work to those. I expect it to take 4-6 weeks at least. Depending on how many calls I have.
Hello RSM coworkers! I am thrilled to be moving to RSM into a Scheduler roll. I just found out yesterday and want to be as prepared as possible in the next steps.
So here are my questions.
How long does the background study take? I'm guessing admin staff have a study that is faster and less complicated than someone in Tax ect.
When training at home what did you need that wasn't supplied by RSM? My home office is well stocked but I want to be as prepared as possible.
Thanks in advance!

Can't help but feel like I'm in a rut. I'm 23 and realized I still haven't accomplished goals that I set when I was 20. I waste copious amounts of time on Netflix. I keep losing weight only to gain it back. I bought a standing desk and am still sitting on my bed to work. I told myself I'm going to accomplish XYZ certification exams over a year ago and started studying 3 or 4 times only to quit studying 3 days in. How do I stop being such a loser. I feel pathetic
Bought an Uplift standing desk that arrived Friday. Something is giving an error so it will not raise out of the bottom 22 inch height. Called them and was told it has to go to warrenty team who doesn't work weekends and takes 2-3 days to review the case.
TLDR : I bought a thousand dollar oversized coffee table......

Best standing desk for home use?
Who here has a standing desk? Worth it?
I have a desk job where I’ll legit sit for 9hrs each day. I used to have hobbies on the computer, like video editing, writing code for side projects, sketching out app ideas. Lately I can’t stand to be at my desk anymore after work. Been watching too much tv instead. More so seems like it’s due to being in the same location for so many hrs each day. Interested in hearing thoughts about separating work desk from personal desk, and other hobbies you picked up to get away from the screen

I’m looking to transition into a CSM role and wondering if there are any tips or resources on how one does that from an entry level tech sales role.

Appreciate the help I’m advance!

Need some tips, advice, suggestions: I am interviewing for a sales mgmt role (to backfill my boss who left), and have been in B2B sales as an individual contributor for 13 years. I want to move into leadership, and have little idea how to prep for this interview. The hiring manager is my interim manager, and we just started working together a couple months ago. I don’t want to ask him how to prep for the interview and feel impostor syndrome lurking real close!

We have offices all over LA (Century City, Irvine, Glendora, Pasadena, Ontario, and Carlsbad), although, we are still remote. This year we’re working on growing a team and presence on the West Coast.

I shared an intermediate workout program (Back/Legs/Arms&Shoulders/Leg/Chest split) with a few friends the other day and figured I could also share it with others if interested.
It’s a program I follow outside of my 12-16 training block preps, and if anyone wants, I can share it with them. It’s for strength training.
Also happy to explain what any of the exercises are if someone wants the workouts and doesn’t know the benefit or how to do them.
Feel free to DM me about it
I checked out of Westin Richmond at 5 AM, to catch a early morning flight back home on Thursday, a couple of weeks ago and they were playing Hindi songs in the lobby. A black guy sitting at the front desk had no idea of the songs playing 😂. Anyone else experienced that?

I love that I am in the stage of life where a girls weekend comes via Outlook invite and a 4 page pdf agenda.
Feeling like we should be spreading more love in days like these - I know we complain about our jobs a ton and it’s easy to do that but I think we should all be proud of how far we’ve come and how much we’ve learned and grown no matter how shitty some days or some coworkers or some clients are ♥️ working in PA helped me gain confidence, courage, and be more resilient. Gives me hope that when I finally get out of it, I’ll be a stronger person overall
Before COVID, I signed a lease for a new apartment which is double what I currently pay in rent (bc no roommate). Been applying for a second job for additional spending money. Problem - I have an interview at a FroYo place but starting to feel guilty about taking a job away from someone else who may actually need it in the current environment. Am I overthinking?
I'm going on 27 and have never been in a serious long-term relationship. The longest relationship I've had was a 3 month long-distance one that ended with them cheating on me, and that relationship was nearly 9 years ago and I haven't dated since. Is it wrong to feel so incredibly insecure about this that I'm terrified of even trying to date given how inexperienced I am? I'm embarrassed to even be typing this and I absolutely hate it, but I'm also so lonely it hurts.
I’ve moved around jobs in the last 5 years since graduating. The longest I’ve stayed is 2 years and shortest 8 months at my first job. Recently recruiters have been giving me hard time about this. Anyone else having similar issue?

I need some advice. 2nd marriage and I make 3x what my husband makes. We have a prenup but did combine finances but are now having money issues. I have issues that he’s planning to continue to provide child support past his daughter’s high school graduation, I contribute significantly into my step children’s 529s but he wants to take loans to pay the rest (bc he didn’t save before he met me), and other similar things. I know money was historically a stressor for him and thus wanted to cont.

Anyone deal with an unpredictable ex who pops up with unnecessary rude text messages over a year later and then when you block him sends you an email to apologize, but the apologies aren’t sincere but you’ve moved past the situation. Like they just won’t leave you alone.
I am currently 6 weeks pregnant and still WFH. There are a high number of COVID cases in my area. Recently I am being asked to attend client and team events outside of the office in the evenings that would require me closely interacting with others and also presented with wine, etc. at dinner. I do not feel comfortable announcing yet given I am extremely early and high risk pregnancy. Any ideas on how to avoid? I am running out of one off excuses and cannot use COVID since I used to attend

What’s something you were literally unable to do while pregnant? I apparently forgot how to drive. Literally every time I get in my car it’s some kind of issue. Typing this as I wait for my boyfriend to come get me off a curb 😩
I’m a manager on a new account. There is an acting manager that has been on the account for a few years. Any time I reach out to him for help he is so dismissive and looks for every opportunity to make me look bad. I can’t stand it. I heard he is rolling off this account in the future so I figured just avoid him
Best part of WFH as a woman: getting my period, & not having to run to the bathroom frequently in front of my co-workers. HBU?
Hi, I’m in the midst of my midlife crisis…how do I survive? The typical I don’t feel like I’m where I should be. I just hate life so much and I’ve been wondering why money comes so easily to everyone around me. My younger sister got a lot money from covid unemployment while going to school and she multiplied that money by 5-6x from dodgecoin. She also was able to pay off student loans with it. My other friends have parents who gave them a headstart in life (house, car, college tuition)…

Is there ever a time where it’s ok to stay quiet in a meeting? I wasn’t feeling well today and didn’t contribute to a meeting of around 8 people but I felt like I was more there to listen and chime in if someone asked me something. Just feeling bad about not speaking up more or being vocal. 😒
