Get your partner to give you email approval attach to expense report. Always works for me

Exactly what EY 3 said

Partner 1, I did, expense processed, we good to go

Works 99% of the time.....the 1% it doesn’t well those just suck. Glad you got paid.

Mileage expense for airport drop off? I live about 65 miles from the airport in a rural area without Uber or Lyft. There are a few local services that do airport runs, but they book up in advance. My wife and I primarily work from so we only have 1 car. For a recent trip the car service was only available for the return airport transfer so my wife dropped me off at the airport. I’m planning to expense the round trip mileage - it would still be cheaper than the ride service. Thoughts?

So peeps, office opening up. What's your plans on moving to Mumbai? Knowing apartment hunting can be a real bitch, some are planning to go back to hometown in the WFH week. i.e work at office at designated week and live in temporary accommodation, and then travel back.

Was a bit caught off guard this week when I received notice that I was not moving forward in the interview process for a position in-house after being asked to apply by the person hiring and subsequently told I would move forward to the next stage b/c they were very interested in me. Given the sudden 180 & the fact the position is still open, I assume there was a concern about me that came up but literally no idea what it could have been! Would love advice on if (& how should ask for feedback?

Hi there! I need some guidance. HR and global leadership rolled out some amazing new initiatives like not starting until 10 am on Mondays, no meeting Fridays and required 2 additional summer days a month. The problem is, my boss refuses to comply with the initiatives. He constantly scheduled meetings before 8 am on Mondays and after 7 pm on Fridays. He also doesn’t let me take time off. Should I go to HR? I’m really not one to complain but I’m tired and extremely burnt out. Thanks for your help!
