Very active gamer here, I'll throw this in:

If you have a basic ass chair, a $90-100 gaming chair is DEFINITELY better. I got a basic amazon one for $90, and it's got some neck and lumbar support that basic chairs don't have.

However I think these guys are right, this probably doesn't compare to a $200+ nice office chair.

Thanks!!!

Remember it’s not just the chair, it’s your posture and eyesight. Are you leaning in because you can’t see the screen well? Are your limbs all making 90° angles when you sit? Feet on the floor, 90° bent knees, 90° bent to sit, 90° at your elbows when you set your arms on the desk.
I have chronic back issues and have been through this with physical therapists many times. Office furniture is built for the average male around 5’8.

Thank you!! Really appreciate your advice here because I was not taking that into consideration and will be more cognizant now of that!!

As a heavy PC gamer, gaming chairs are useless. You’re better off getting a high end office chair

You can also try Purple’s seat cushion. It keeps your butt comfy and helps you sit up straight.

Awesome !! I’ll look into this !!

There has been a lot of review on Ergochair 2 but don’t know how many of them actually bought the chair. Depends on your budget. If you budget is 500+ then go for HM or Steelcase. If you want to save up go for autonomous. Check this review

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!

Wondering about WLB. I've read everything here and it seems varied. My question would be, as someone with two young kids, how flexible are the hours? It's a WFH position but want to know if I'll be able to pick or drop off the kids at school when needed, etc. Is it something like as long as I can attend my meetings and perform my duties type of deal or am I expected to be in my office chair for the duration of my work hours? Thanks!
