Best WFH items you bought?
Is ur partner’s sense of cleanliness and tidiness a deal breaker? My partner maintains his hygiene but everything else around him is in a state of messiness - he would finish a beer and leave it on the desk. Our home office is full of cans, food container, random trash that my partner does not put away. It stresses me out because his habits make me feel that I will always have to be the one to clean after him...he’s the one with the busier job (he’s a principal at a big 3 consulting firm).
After all of the COVID19 stuff is over, do you think our industry will change how it operates? More telecommunication/video conferencing at home office. Still fly to sell work and important meetings.

I started having wrist pain in the fall and it has flared up a lot recently. My PCP and a hand surgeon both said they had no idea what it was, since the location of pain was inconsistent. folks with wrist injuries: how have you coped? I feel lost without a diagnosis. I stretch and I take breaks and I have ergonomic equipment, and still I ￼￼am in pain. Any advice is welcome, as are any sympathies or commiserations￼￼

How quiet is your home office environment? I am in a corporate practice and need quietness to read documents. I live in a courtyard facing apartment.

Should I stay at a company I know I like culture-wise when my manager said they will try to promote me, but with no guarantee. Or should I take a job offer I was given with a nice raise, but is in consulting at Slalom. I have not worked in consulting before. There is no travel with Slalom, but the idea of being the new person all the time isn’t too appealing. Less pay and known culture, or more pay unknown job satisfaction?
