Any recommendations for a good adjustable standing desk? My apartment is small so looking for something that is <40in wide
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!
Need recommendations - Best electric standing desk under $400? And ergonomic chair to go with it?
When there is a huge line of people (30+) for the deli at your home office, but the lunch lady surprises you with your favorite chipotle chicken wrap already toasted and ready. #winning #goldstatus 😁
does anybody know how to be an expatriate in big4? My understanding is you will still get paid based on your home office location(e.g. US) but being stationed abroad.
My home office had a makeover and I upgraded to a standing desk! I now have a box of books and college textbooks ready to donate. Is there anywhere I could take them to donate considering... South Fl
I am sure it’s been asked 100 times but humor me please. Best office chair to add to the good I’m doing with a stand up desk? Lol. Would love to stay in a reasonable range if possible (800 max)
Trying to avoid paying an accountant, can I actually write off home office space/mileage if I was just permalancing for 3 months last year? Shouldn’t the 7 months of W2 take care of this 1099 shit?
Anyone have a good office chair recommendation? Really not trying to spend more than $150 but willing to go to $200 if there is a really good recommendation. Thanks!
Has anyone purchased a whiteboard for their home office ? Any specific brands you’d recommend. White board wall paint seems to have fallen out of favor - does anyone have experience with that ? Thanks
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. Anyone have feedback on either the desk or a light they like, or any other ergo friendly home office hacks you’ve found helpful?
Has anyone switched to a standing desk? Do you feel more productive? Was it worth it? Did you switch at the office or at your home?
Any ergonomic chair recommendations?
Anyone meet clients at home? I'm an RIA, and my home office is much nicer than my office. Unfortunately it doesn't have a separate entrance and you have to walk through the living room/kitchen.
Few years back.. I quit Accenture India without serving notice period stating medical reasons and joined another firm. ACN folks continued my employment for another 2 months before giving my (cont)
Pre-covid did B4 have Holiday/New Years parties?
I rolled off a project 3 months ago. They keep reaching out and asking me to help onboard new teammates to give them historical knowledge (it’s a long-term project). Do I have to keep doing this? Or does it get to a point where I can say I don’t have the time and there must be someone more recent who can help?
Any new fathers irritated or rubbed the wrong way about all the programs/benefits/focus on working mothers and very little (if any) on working dads?
Have an interview for the S&O analyst with the Scaled Revenue Programs team. Any insights will be greatly appreciated. TIA!
Anyone here that works for General Atlantic? Got questions reg work, firm & culture. Thanks in advance
How accurate is Glassdoor when it comes to Deloitte Senior Manager salary? How are signing bonuses at that level?
Looking for relevant market data, as most public salary information is from recruiting firms and is inflataed to a certain degree.... Salary as a senior manager in the first and second year, please include bonus separately, preferably Midwest to adjust for COL... wondering how bad this number really is before I look to bail
Share your interview experience, a one to remember. I once did an interview where I had to go to the bathroom in the middle of the interview. The people interviewing laughed at me, came back and nailed it.
Thinking outside the box: need H1B renewal stamping, eligible for Dropbox in my home country. However, going there is still risky in case of a 221g and consulates closed. Can I send my passport to my home country through a friend for Dropbox stamping? Once the stamping is done, I can travel to home country (after they courier my passport back) Is this possible or am I going crazy?
I’m mentally breaking down because I have been doing a job of a scheduler, PM, notetaker, regulatory submissions, and thus have no room for growth to work on strategy. I’m an AS and I am so sick of having to remind everyone because no one looks at my notes, recaps, and no one remembers anything from any meeting. Recently because I’m so exhausted I started making more “mistakes” like not catching a mistake on a submission. Is this because I suck or is it time for me to move off? I feel terrible.
Considering moving and the two options are Chicago or NYC. Assume identical comp. Any thoughts on one versus the other? I’m leaning towards Chicago as of now — good blend of big city with decent COL.
Please DM me if you are looking on selling Marriott points. I am short on points for a vacation
Brutal 2 weeks. Weekend of work. SM micromanaging. Pick up someone's slack and they 🔨 your head. What is wrong with this people?
Is it worth trying to move now to a firm willing to sponsor an MBA? Currently at a firm that wouldn’t, but know I want to go back to school in a few years and maybe stay in consulting post MBA
Work at a hold co and tired of hearing the ceo’s are in it with us and taking cuts? I call BS on that! They are only reducing salary and will still earn millions. Omnicom John Wren - $19,818,780 in 2019, his 2020 sacrifice = 5.05% reduction. IPG – Michael Roth $16,590,172 in 2019 his 2020 sacrifice is undisclosed. WPP Mark Read £2,594,000 in 2019 his 2020 sacrifice = 1.88% reduction. Publicis Arthur Sadoun €3,265,800 in 2019 his 2020 sacrifice = 4.6% reduction.
