Back when we were travelling, how did team dinners work given the strict per diem? Does Accenture Strategy just never get to indulge in nice meals / drinks? Was one of the best perks of the job ☹️

I think it depends but on my project the M/SM/MD would expense the nice team dinner and you would just not claim per diem for that meal

When I was in Deloitte.. some of the best expenses were approved, just submit to the partner, but helps if you have a good relationship, looking back, i can't believe some of what they approved, hookah, binge drinking. Per Diem is money in your pocket.. no claim necessary, actuals is what I was on, even late night trips to a minimart were ok. 🤣
