Also, KPMG allows (taxed) reimbursement for spousal travel if you stay the weekend at most projects. Never got that at EY.

Yes you can do alternate travel. Just need approval from partner on the project.

Most commercial projects at KPMG lets you expense per diems at GSA rates for meals, including lunch.

$60 cell phone at EY vs $45/65 at KPMG. $15 breakfast $50 dinner at EY vs about 50 per GSA rate at KPMG. I’d give the slight edge to EY in those two areas. Any major differences in other perks? Is there a frequent traveler program at KPMG like at EY?

GSA rates for per diem is more like $65 average for any large urban areas, or $74 for NYC/SFO. And you get to keep money you don’t use. And you can use personal credit cards to pay for meals and earn points. It’s honestly one of the better perks in terms of monetary values. But as others have said, not enough reason to join K just for this alone.

Responsible me is trying to look out for future me by maxing out my 401K and other retirement accounts. Lately, I've been having doubts about this approach. I don't have kids and never will. I am not interested in living too far past 70. Probably have enough in my retirement accounts now/soon to make it comfortably to 70. With 30+ years ahead of me till 65, do I cut back on maxing out? Sorry for the post holiday cheer....

EY 🐠, your winter/summer breaks say “use 3 days of vacation or personal days”.

Also I see $60/month reimbursement for cell phones, does this mean if your phone bill ever goes over $60/month you’re on the hook for the difference?
