Ergonomic home-office chair recommendations?
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!
Screen sharing with an ultrawide / 4K monitor - what’s everyone’s experience like? In the past I tried to screen share with a 1440p monitor and people would complain my screen was too small so I have a secondary 1080p monitor that use exclusively for screen sharing. I’d love to move to either an ultrawide or just upgrade the 1080p monitor to a 4K one but am worried I’ll have the same issues it appearing small on the other persons end. Anyone have any suggestions?

Boss man (remote boss) is taking me and my wife out to dinner. I’m a big wino and generally will have a glass or two with meals. Bad to order a glass at dinner?
My boss loves to have every warm body possible in pitch meetings, even people who aren’t working on it. He will slack you out of the blue and expect you to drop everything to just sit there and make the team look “impressive.” Why are people like this? Don’t clients see right through it? Is it actually impressive to have 10+ people in the room if only half of them participate? 😑 it’s such a waste of everyone’s time.

How many years should you stay at a consulting company before jumping ship so it doesn’t look like your a hopper or flight risk or have negative perception?
Hey y’all. Third year associate at a boutique PI firm. I am the only female and only associate of a firm of four other male partners. I am finding that time and time again, I am outcast and put into the staff category ie (partners ask me to schedule depositions, do not ask me to be involved in case strategy meetings). We’ve also recently gotten a new young female firm manager who they treat like gold. Is paid only $10k less than me without a law or college degree, twenty days off a year, . . .
Can you survive with no skills? Am exiting MBB for VC soon and recently realized I don’t have any differentiated skills, just general problem solving. Will I be able to just coast along forever?

Is it just me, or is the big 4 sales culture low energy? I get the RFP process is painful, having done it in other industries myself, but the way I've seen most people sell in these firms seems mediocre for the amount of support that gets thrown at these opportunities. Maybe it's the ex-finance consultant in me, but the approaches I've seen in my 5 year tenure so far have me thinking this isn't catering to my strengths and won't be the best move to stick it out to SM/PPMD.
