I will be starting as a first year analyst at an EB in July. I did not complete an internship with the group so I am not intimately familiar with the group's culture.
I was a division 1 athlete and as a result have recurring back issues. Nothing major but sitting down for 15 hours+ a day is probably not great for my back. I would like a standup desk and am wondering the best way to go about this. I do not want to seem entitled or demanding in asking for too much too quickly.
Is a standup desk something most groups are willing to entertain? Should I wait a few months before asking? Is it something I should ask the company to pay for? Or should I expect to pay for it? Am I out of line in thinking this is possible? What is the best way to proceed?
Any help would be great. Thanks!
