For those of you teaching virtually, how is your home office organized? What are some of your must haves?
Standing desk or desk converter. I live in a small apartment so I am hesitant to get another piece of furniture, hence leaning toward desk converter. Can someone please share their insights?
Home office preference question. I am getting ready to redo the layout of my home office. One option I'm considering would have my desk facing a wall. I am wondering if anyone with this current setup has any feedback about it. I would face the wall so that I would have a better background for video conferences (am on about half the day) and also my cord situation would be cleaner.￼￼
Company : Hey take this money and buy an office chair, table ,extra monitors, accessories to setup your home office. Me : Hey! Thanks. Company : Are you now comfortable working from home and feel productive ? Me : Yeah. Company: Awesome! Now come back to your base location and spend majority of your time working from a rented place where you will miss both Working from home and working from office.
Any contractor recommendations in OC? Building an ADU to use as a home office, and possibly rent out when I no longer need it.
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?
Favorite office chair?
Had an employee request a standing desk due to back problems. went through the ADA process & the employee obtained a doctor's note to support their request. However, the note was questionable. it was from an acupuncturist, on a word doc, no real signature and just said that a standing desk would prevent pain & improve their productivity, nothing about him not being able to work without it. Thoughts? Also, what do you think about having certifications from non-traditional doctors?
Looking to upgrade my home office set up. Any recs for a 24-30in monitor? Are curved monitors worth the price difference?
Office Chair - Would love to hear your recommendations for a comfortable office chair. I have severe back-ache issue and been using my dining chair thus far but it’s high time I need to invest in one!
Has anyone in the tax practice ever been sent to a client site to do work there rather than their home office?
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?
Just set up my home office to really get going on this side gig... fingers crossed I get to leave this travel life soon!
How soon you get laptop as part of virtual onboarding process for laterals these days. Also what all things they provide in welcome kit. Don't think productivity allowance will be applicable for new joiners now ( i.e. Allowence for buying laptop stand, office chair etc) Any recent joinee please share your experiences. Thank you!
Curious how other firms are handling work from home subsidies, stipends, etc. since COVID has resulted in mostly remote work for many of us Anyone mind sharing what, if any stipend or reimbursement your company has offered for setting up a home office, higher speed internet to support video calls, etc.?
Fuck this. After having put the kids to bed, I’m working till late finishing up a proposal and deck in my ‘home office’ after a nearly 70-hour work week (and it’s only Thursday). All I want is to be back at a club with my team pre-COVID; standing on the dance floor with a drink in one hand, buzzed, speech slurred, sweat on my brow, ready for the last song of the night to come on. And for that song to be Sweet Child of Mine.
Beyond 2 lines the text in each post card is cut off. I wonder how many lines in the comment section?

Not crashing anymore.
How great would office emojis be in this app?

Just joined Industry and everyone on my team are still online at 5:30pm. Am I making a mistake?
Monday morning rant... airlines need better seat partitions than just the arm rest. You shouldn't have to share your space with someone else, esp when they act entitled to it.
Would you recommend CSR or Amex Plat for a personal CC? CSR seems a little better except for lounge access. Thoughts?
How long does it usually take to hear back from a recruiter - I have not heard back since last Friday. Does it make sense in following up or is this how you get dinged?
How do you get over a mistake at work? No financial loss and essentially missed a deadline for a report. All is on track now, but can’t seem to help myself get over it.
Do you cringe when you read the emails your junior sends to a client, or is it just me?
Womxn in consulting: can you share stories where you were obviously passed up for a role or project or otherwise unfairly treated due to being a womxn?
Accenture consultants do any of you work in the Fraud practice? What’s it like? Do you enjoy it? Is most of your work fraud or do you do other financial crime work as well? Pay?” For exp. hires?
