If everyone who was out of compliance with the expense policy was fired more than half the firm would be gone.

Ironically enough I have never been out of policy with my expenses.. but some chick I know is putting money on her Starbucks app to get the rewards and she says she has been doing it for years.. obvi this is out of policy but is it something they'd fire you for? I'd imagine you'd get a slap on the wrist.. one Sr Mgr said that when you are up for partner they do a full expense audit for 5 years back

Have you been charging some expenses on your personal card?

like

Anyone have any thoughts about the following: personal card transactions within policy for meals, expensing small meals after thurs night arrival to home city but before arriving home, expensing lunch for breakfast? My opinion is the first is not okay to do but would get a slap on the wrist, second is only if within reason and for actual reasonable meals not to go drinking with friends, third is not ok. Any thoughts?

If they ever want to fire someone, they go after expenses.

If you are just using your personal card for hotels and you are a strong performer, you will get a warning. If they want to fire you though they can.

Ya it makes sense that if they want to fire someone they'd just audit them and find some little bullshit expense issue

Also remember some clients audit expenses and ask for receipts. This has gotten folks fired more than an audit, in my experience.

like

In reality. If you have receipts to back up every personal card expense that are within policy, you should be fine. Just tell them you left your Amex at home or they don't accept Amex.

Has anyone ever been audited tho? And how did it go

How does one get audited (if they aren't trying to fire you) is it random?
