McKinsey fish - any WFH allowances/budget for new hires? I recently accepted an offer at McKinsey NA and will start the virtual orientation in a few weeks. I never really did the whole WFH thing, so my setup is less than ideal. Should I spend $$ now to get a reasonable setup (external monitor, a desk, a chair that won’t kill me) or wait? I’d rather not shell out for equipment now if there will be allowances available to me once I begin.

Ask your office manager or PD. Earlier this year many offices offered a small budget for WFH set up, but you need to get the details for your office. Desk and chair I’ll be at least partially out of pocket. Monitor and other accessories are often available through GHD. Don’t know if they still have a backlog of requests.

I just asked the NYC office and they said only that details will be shared on orientation day. They probably don’t want to commit to anything in case conditions change re COVID.
