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!
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.
Does Infosys reimburse Internet bills for resources who are working from home??
Also does they provide any extra miney to setup home office, like for chairs & tables?
Is there a real difference between a $150 and $1,500 office chair? Want to prevent myself herniating my discs but also get something sustainable and built to last.
Favorite office chair?
Design question for my work from home ladies - how did you decorate around a standing desk, large monitors, etc?
I find that with a large monitor there’s not so much I can put on the wall without having the monitor partially cover it - especially when the desk moves.
I don’t mind if the decor is covered when I’m using it standing, but want it to look nice when it’s lower down. Also find that with the monitor/laptop another square on the wall is too much of the same shape - any inspiration?
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?

Married fish… We both use our at home office frequently and desperately need a new chair…Sometimes my husband will say we spent too much money but then when we desperately need another office chair and I text him a cheap one he says well maybe we should get a nicer one since that we can keep for a couple years and that we actually like. See my confusion here? Does anyone else’s spouse do this?
I didn't know I was supposed to file taxes in multiple states when I started and honestly thought that I only needed to report the hours associated with my home office for revenue recognition/billing
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
Not fashion related but does anyone here have suggestions for an office chair that's both comfortable and stylish, preferably under $200? 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
Didn't get promoted. Wondering if I should go to the home office day where they announce all promotions. No matter how good a sport I am, for sure it'll hurt.
Folks my back is suffering wfh. Can anyone recommend a good yet economical work/office chair. Need back and preferably head support
Anyone use a standing desk?
Anyone take a full time remote position? How do you like it? Does the company invest your at home office set up? Did you get a wework or equiv membership to feel like going into an office?
I feel like I have no actual friends in my home office. I only go out after work with the team that I'm on. I'm in no groupchats or anything. Will this hurt me in the long run?
I recently had to forfeit my portfolio and have to touch with new age publishers. What have you been doing? Do you cold outreach email editors and writers?
I usually don’t celebrate my birthday, but I’m turning 40😅 and feel like I need to do something by inviting people I know. I think it will be a small group, maybe 10 at most. I’m thinking I’d like to do a nice dinner, but don’t want it to be expensive for people. So I’m leaning towards a happy hour on Friday, maybe get some appetizers for the group and then everyone pays for their drinks. Do you girls think it is a good option for the group? What’s the “etiquette” for this sort of celebration?
Hope those who are staying close to office are fine. The entire area is flooded.the entire office is also flooded.
Please stay at home guys and stay safe.
Act Of God WFH!

I am an Account Executive and work in the programmatic team as part of a wider agency, but I’m not sure this is where I want to be. I want something more collaborative, creative, and less to do with numbers and budgets.
Does anyone have any idea what I should look into and how I could transition into that role?
I have joining in Accenture in the next week. But I have other offers too. Can I negotiate now with accenture? If I don't join, will they blacklist me?
