Honestly, it’s not as great as other consulting firms. $75 Meal limit. No expensing lunches. No expensing coffee. No expensing day passes at airport lounges.

AM1 that is only for non-billable work. Can you read?

As someone else said, dinners and breakfast are $75/pp. Some groups allow exceptions with MD approval. Hotels: my group usually stays at Marriott. Flights: below Director is in coach, Director+ is in business if travel time is over something like 4 hours. Best perk is being able to use whatever card we want - not just the corporate Amex (and it’s not uncommon to not even have the Amex).

Also you can book direct with your hotel and airline of choice. You do not have to use Concur to book travel
