Considering switching firms to Mck, what is their alt travel policy? Does it require approval? Is it taxed? Hotel only etc?

Alt travel policy is one your considerations?


U got an offer already?

In final round rn

Yes, i would fly every weekend elsewhere, if I have to pay taxes and get approval then that’s very annoying, I dealt with that before. I don’t believe it’s taxable, and I’m a lawyer. I don’t want somewhere to force me to pay tax when I don’t think I’m required to.

It is taxable at all MBB

Legally or as policy? BCG only taxes only a certain amount I believe, I work there currently.

Legally, it’s not clear and I believe that interpretation is wrong. I know why they do it, to avoid inquiry, but disagree. Question is whether it’s a fringe benefit, I don’t think it is legally. I have no intention of paying extra tax, and have accountants to make sure I am 100% compliant.

Reach out to HR for clear guidance

Haha, why would I ask for guidance from HR? Do you think they have a CPA or JD? And BCG HR? They sent me to start at wrong location for BCG and messed up all my forms, disaster

Op what’s your skillset?

5 years of public policy experience, 2 years as a lawyer, 3 years in business working with accountants on a number of projects
