Hi all - looking for stats and help on what a St Consultant level III gets paid here in London? (My understanding is that levels are indicative of the cost of living of your home office and thus a higher level guarantees a higher pay). With 80K I feel like I’m being severely low-balled. I’m transferring from a US office.
I’m looking for an ergonomic desk chair for $500ish or less. Currently looking at Steelcase Series 1. Anyone have any thoughts?
Best office chair for pregnancy? My ikea chair is not cutting it. I have a standing desk at home so bonus points if it works well with that. I have short legs, so it needs to be able to go lower to the floor than other chairs. Maybe one that has a great range so I could use it to lean on while standing and also sit ergonomically.
Can anyone provide a good office chair recommendation? Looking to spend somewhere between $200-$300, but willing to look into pricier options if it is really worth it!
What are some complexes you would recommend for a spacious 1br 1ba (or 2br 1ba) under $2K near the battery. I’m a young professional thats permanently remote and needs space to set up a nice home office.
I know I have to look for a job but I really don’t want to. Waiting it out until I can start a new job somewhere else that’s not my cluttered home office.
Favorite office chair?
Alright fellow T&E submitters of the DMV, I’ve been dealing with this back and forth since I started in this region. Where do I submit as my location for T&E? I live in one, work in another, and my home office is in another. I always get a different answer. Is there a policy because I haven’t found it?
Looking for feedback from the group about the benefits of using an exercise ball as a chair vs transitioning to a standing desk. Costs are an obvious factor in favor of an exercise ball but curious if anyone has seen any health benefits using either. Thanks
For those of you without a home office: Where do you usually work? My desk is in my bedroom and I’m considering sacrificing aesthetic to move my set up elsewhere
This week I started a listen through my entire record collection from front to back. I’ll be doing this on workdays when I am in my home office. Did it a few years ago. Collection has grown a lot since then. But I’m not doing comedy and spoken word this time. Too hard to work to those. I expect it to take 4-6 weeks at least. Depending on how many calls I have.
I want to dispose my office chair and i live in Newton. Anyone knows if i can leave it curbside or where i can check for the details?

I’m a noogler with a $1000 wfh stipend burning a hole in my pocket. itching for a 4K monitor and/or apple air pods max since I’m in a noisy area. Am I being reasonable? Or am I crazy?
Very very poor hikes, even worse than service companies. For ppl who joined in November or later, , they have defaulted hikes to bare minimum.
Is it bad not to feel guilty in looking for another job due to the way they treat you and the pay rate.

I feel like Facebook needs to be removed from “FAANG” status and replaced with Salesforce, SAANG, or some other arrangement of the letters. Does anyone else feel this way?
If you finish a 4 hour assignment in 2 hours due to high concentration or focus or whatever else, what do you charge? 2 or 4? Simple question, don't get bozo cute with me now.
Happy Wednesday! I am trying to plan with our AP and climate lead on what we can do in distance learning as a school wide event. I suggested we still host our multicultural club assemblies on zoom for the school. Anyone have experience with zoom assemblies to promote a positive climate in DL? Thanks!

How bad is the attrition in Amazon for their recruiters to be so desperately reaching out to people?
Just received a rejection email from one of my dream companies. The recruiter asked if I have any follow up questions. Besides asking what can I do better in my interview, what else would you ask? I want to make this experience as educational as possible.
Thanks in advance!
I know it's not going to happen, but I really wish we could be transparent when an interviewer asks us why are we trying to leave the company.
For me, I'm leaving because my manager is completely against growth.
Anyone else guilty of poisoning new hires viewpoints?? Some of em just asked me so many questions and I wanna be honest with them.
Like sorry Timmy pls don’t ask me “what happens when ‘politics’ come up in the work place” on a call of 30 other new hires next time so I don’t have to say that “we basically let our bosses say that we don’t talk about politics then he proceeds to talk about politics and then we talk about politics”.
(The hiring committee person literally cut me off after this 🤣)
I just got a job as an Onboarding Lead (their 1st onboarder) at a small start up.
My job will be onboarding/assisting new clients in our platform. I’ve had 6 yrs of tech support and customer success management experience, but as a 100% onboarding role I am looking for resources on how to build/develop an Onboarding program and team.
I know it’s a vague ask, but any websites, books, creators or accounts that would be helpful to get my creative juices flowing would be so appreciated. Thx!
I have a question in general about boot camps with ISAs.
Does anyone know if they monitor how hard or how often you actually job search after you complete the program? What if you just don’t try to get a job so that you don’t have to pay them back?

I get that knowledge and research skills improve when we write a blog. Will it get the attention of recruiters? Will it give me an edge over others? (During the job interview)
Thanks and have a great week ahead!
PwC has provisionally cleared me to join the firm first week of Jan. What does this mean? Can I start working with them even if the background check is still running in parallel? Can I quit my current job and expect everything to be cool? They said it's taking them longer to verify education and previous employment. Both of which are international.

When would you ever use Fortune 10/Fortune 50/Fortune 100 vs the official list terminology Fortune 500 when describing a client you've done work for in an agency?
Or.. would you just write the company's name on your resume & portfolio?
Or not even?
