Airlift standing desk with Embody Herman Miller is my setup, and by definition the best setup as a result.

It’s the Cadillac of office chairs for sure. I’m considering sleeping on mine in full recline… wife will probably have an issue with that though…

I like the Fully Jarvis myself. Put my own wood top on it.

I use a steelcase leap chair bought in 2018. My wife has a 20 year old steelcase that was handed down by her mother. We love both of them.

Fully is amazing. I have the L shaped desk. Best investment ever. I also bought the Aeron chair new. Now, I think it would’ve been ok if I would’ve bought it used

Genuine question: What are the most common exit options at Google BizOps? (1) For internal transfer to PM, those teams seem to prefer to hire Google engineers. (2) For internal transfer to Chief of Staff, why those teams don’t promote their own Strategy & Op folks? (3) For BizOps internal promotion, there are not many Director positions. (4) For leaving Google, I don’t know where people usually go… Please share your thoughts / correct me if I’m wrong. Thanks!
