Does Chartis have alt travel? I know they have a different travel schedule than big 4, so wondered how that works

Yes, we have alt travel. It’s pretty much aligned with the Big 4 policy, you have to cover the cost difference between your home location and the other city where you’re traveling. The ease of doing that is project specific. If you’re on a ‘traditional’ Monday-Thursday project every week then it works great. However if there’s a different cadence (e.g biweekly, monthly) then it becomes functionally impractical unless you plan on being in that city for a long time.

I'd say the rule of thumb is that we travel weekly, but it's usually just 2 nights per week. There might be 1 week out of every 6 where you're not on site. They can vary though. My last project, which was 4 months long, I only traveled 3 times.

Started in industry two weeks ago. No timesheets, 40 hour work weeks, and 30% more than what I was making previously. We use all B4 for everything, so it’s just managing their work and budgeting.

If I had known I could do this well in life I would have waited and done so much better than her 😕
