Briefly mentioned getting 4WD for a rental car on a project up in Massachusetts to the partner, now getting push back from expense team to personally pay for the upgrade. What to do?

Say you weren't comfortable with the Winter storms to not have a car without 4WD and the difference was X amount. It was not for luxury, but safety. So for clarification, what is my safety worth to the team and KPMG?

Assuming you're being reasonable, don't upgrade but if bad weather hits sandbag your way to the office. I'm not risking my life for an engagement margin.

Deloitte's official policy says that you can get an SUV/AWD car if the weather conditions are bad.

Follow P1 advice. Make it about safety. Getting a four wheel drive as a long term rental in winter in NE is prudent.

Also not close with this Partner as I do not normally work with her

It's practically spring here right now, though. Not sure if you'll need it.

Agreed so I was planning on bringing back the rental car I have now and going back to a normal sedan but know I will probably face the same issue for this car when I expense it

Do I keep dealing with the expense team or go to the partner?

How much is the upgrade? This seems like a weird thing to get picky about.

I'm on a long term project so I had the car for two months so it was $900

Ah I didn't realize this was a past tense thing. My reply is not helpful.

After two months I switched cars since I could only rent the first one for that length so that first car is the issue now but I currently have another 4WD car right now but planning on returning it tonight cause of this

Way to complicate basic things

I’m new to the firm. My third project my manager was very hands off. He’s wants to have a discussion with me about my performance. He did not give me any support to work with; even when I asked! And my direct manager agrees with him, but it was my third week. What to do? I feel like I’m going to say something crazy. Any advice?
