I mean, we can use personal cards for expenses. To me, that's a huge benefits. #pointsfordayzzz

Expense policy - very fair. I think in my 3 years here I've made a net gain without having to sacrifice anything. Benefits - more than fair, can only compre to fortune 10 companies though. Platinum is paid for managers Cell phone is comped at $40-60 a month and you pay the difference. I think you should consider other factors though....

Sorry, forgot to mention only for manager and above.

Depends on your city. I get $48 a day working in a second-class city. Whatever you don't use for food or incidentals, you keep.

A2 we get comped cell phones? How do I sign up??

Technically you're not supposed to use personal cards for any expenses (flights etc) but I know way too many people that do it

Personal card for expenses is bigger than platinum and cellphone combined. Probably make an extra $3k in additional benefits through that

Our per diems are based on Govt rates. Its kind of reasonable. . What are yours ,Accenture folks?

Anywhere to around $30 to around $60 depending on location

Per Diem is a function of location . I travel outside US and my per Diem is high 70's and on top of that I get a special per Diem ( once you cross "x" number of days ) of $20 per day . So it all depends.

What are everyone’s thoughts on big wage gaps in a couple. My boyfriend makes about 40k now and realistically won’t make more than 70k in his chosen career. I make more than double what he makes now and suspect that wage gap will only keep increasing. Is this anyone else’s situation? I don’t know how to handle as we have more shared expense (ie rent). Splitting payments equally doesn’t seem fair since I’m pushing for a nicer and more expensive place but I also don’t want to make him feel bad.
