Health question: Does anyone else suffer from nerve pain in their butt/hips from sitting all day? My research tells me it’s piriformis pain. It means my sit bones are irritating my butt muscle, which irritates my sciatic nerve. It can be excruciating and hurt even when I stand. I bought a fancy seat cushion for my office chair, and I have a standing desk. Nothing helps. The pain has been around for about a month. Anyone else?? What did you do?

Let’s talk office set ups. I am looking at a Uplift standing desk as my big splurge because I have back issues, and the room I work in has horrible lighting so I’m considering some sort of selfie light ring type thing that I can clip to my monitor.

I’ve recently accepted an ACI offer from Bain in a main office. What is everyone’s opinion on the outlook of Bain 5/10/20 years out? I occasionally hear remarks BCG and McKinsey are widening the gap and this has me questioning potentially re-recruiting. For context, I love Bain and the culture, but this concern paired with slower promotion is a little unsettling.
Had an interesting interview experience last week where the person interviewing me mentioned that she thought my background was a solid fit for a role she was recruiting for that was just posted. Now this is a separate role from the one which I applied and although aligned to the same vertical business unit within the company it’s still very much a different role and team. cont...
