@D1 Not really. Expense analytics will figure it out regardless of project leadership and handle it via audits if it's commonly done. Project leadership may never get involved.

In my experience as long as it doesn't impact your project budget and your manager's ok with it you can go wherever

Yes

Depends on your manager

Only if in your home city. If you're still in the client city it can be wherever. My flight doesn't leave the client city until 9:30 on Thursday so I often eat outside the airport and was told it's totally fine.

Or just do per diem 👹👹👹👹👹 then it doesn't matter

I will be graduating this semester with my finance degree. I have 6 years admin experience (of that 3 years involved light accounts payable work) and 1 year nonprofit accounting doing billing and expense reporting. In in my early 30s. What pay should I expect for a entry level financial analyst? What is the highest you think I can reasonably ask for?

I have been tasked with creating a social strategy at an edtech company that relies on basically zero budget. I do have access to our in-house creative team and can expense small things here and there but that’s it. Does anyone have advice on what I can do to get leaders to understand why working on our brand awareness and audience development is important? What sorts of organic social strategies have you tried in the past that have paid off? Any ideas are much appreciated!

Got the per diem job. Nice pay. Signed the offer. But they put addendum. 24 hr weekend day shift once a month and 1 overnight call twice a month and 3x 10 hr shift per week. I was looking for flexibility for my young kids. While my wife works 3x12s. I’m aware of some weekend day shift but not 24hr. The overnight call also was a surprise. Contemplating.

When you make an offer on home what all cost you ask the seller. I am asking 3% closing, deep cleaning, 1 yr warranty on appliances. The closing in MD runs into 12-15k which is major expense so does asking seller to pay is normal practice. How long a builder installed carpet and appliances generally last assuming normal wear and tear. In 10-15 yr old house i believe most of these needs a new replacement

Is a top school education worth the extra expense? Background : my son is applying to schools for a computer science engineering degree. He wants to ED at Columbia, but I'm conflicted with committing to such a pricey degree. It would financially drain us and we have a second child in 5th grade. College price calculator puts the yearly fee at $60k out of pocket.

Late night thoughts - I cannot figure out when to throw in the towel on consulting. I just switched to a Big 4 role two weeks ago and I feel like my stress has shot up significantly. I hate traveling for work and I want a role with good WLB. I know two weeks is nothing and I feel like a failure for giving up so easily but I feel I'm just not made out for this kind of life. Should I just suck it up and stick it out for two more years for the exit opps?
