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!
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.

High back office chair recommendations <$500?
Hey beautiful people,
I’m 27Y and work in tech. Unfortunately my carpal tunnel is getting worst slowly. I’m worry that I still have like 45 years more to be retired and can’t stop working because I have a f* mortgage to pay 😭 I have a super ergonomic workstation, but I know my hand needs a long rest, and I can’t do it… Does anyone relate? What do you recommend?
No judgment tax question. Would a covered deck extension and repair to be used for work purposes (home office) be classified a deductible business expense? Need guidance.
In search of a comfortable office chair that is still modern/stylish and $500 or below, any recs? Would appreciate links also, TIA!
I’ve seen the posts on ergonomic desks and chairs - I’m looking for actually aesthetically pleasing ergonomic sit / stand desk and chair options for my new zen office. Willing to spend $$$, any recs? Thanks!
If I’m starting on a 100% travel engagement and my parents live an hour away from my home office & they’ve been begging me to move on back home, is it worth keeping an empty in my home city?
Those with WFH allowances (payment for hybrid working setup) what’s the best purchase you’ve made? Tempted to get a standing desk or second monitor
Anyone have any recommendations for “high” desk chairs that are also comfortable? I’m having nerve issues in my leg and I need my legs to mostly “hang” off and be more straight (instead of bent at the knee). Already have a standing desk which is great — just need something better so I can sit without being in pain
Which office chair would you recommend?
Any suggestions for a standing desk, please? I’m looking for something of good quality but also doesn’t need anything fancy besides being able to allow me to stand and work… I do work from my living space so I will pay more for a nicer look.
Hi wonderful ladies!! I’m looking to add a little reading chair to my “home office” so I have a place to sit when I’m waiting on signature pages to come in during a closing and/or for those much needed nights off to cuddle up with a book! Any suggestions?? ❤️❤️

Why does corporate not understand if you pay your existing staff they won’t leave....,the new employees come in making more than the whole team
Just heard that my district will have classroom and live-recording learning. I’m thankful because I now can feed my family, my newborn and a recent-sponsored wife! I’m scared because I’m almost 50 and I’m afraid I might catch the virus and die leaving behind my 1 month baby and a wife who is not legal in the state yet! The USCIS or Trump’s dept. thinks she’s not good enough to be in the US!! We applied for green card and SS card since August 2019!

Women married to non-consulting partners:
How do you manage expectations with your partner and your own guilt while working on client engagements? I got married recently and am feeling guilty about spending less time with my partner after starting on a new engagement. My calls start at 6 am and I don’t get to spend enough time before going to sleep (my partner has late night calls). Their job doesn’t involve weekend work and I feel bad about ditching weekend and vacation plans for work!
