Don’t know specific details but heard Amazon is very petty with travel/expenses etc.

Considering you got an offer I imagine you’re aware of one of their 14 leadership LP: Frugality. My understanding is all coach, and pretty stringent hotel city caps, but not terrible.

Damn I feel like the offer is not worth the crap I’ll be getting

Nice! Congrats on your offer! Position? YOE?

I travel domestically with Amazon weekly. I haven’t noticed a difference in flights or hotels from what D offered, but I never stayed in fancy hotels. They cover $50 per month for phone bill. Expensing is the same as at D.

Wrong. There’s no phone bill limit in $50. Domestic travel is not in question, and doesn’t matter as much as international does. Try hauling ass for work in economy for 17-hour direct flight (or ~ 20-hour one stop flights) to India in economy. This is not hypocritical scenario. Travel to India is pretty common both in Amazon and Deloitte. Difference is you travel in business with Deloitte. Not saying Deloitte is better than or pays better than Amazon. Because it is not. But saying expense policy is comparable isn’t true.

What role?

You aren’t upgrading on international flights. That’s the main difference I notice. Generally I get upgraded domestically .

Hey I have an ASC840 accounting question on this scenario - a target sold an asset 10 years ago for 10,000,000 and immediately leased it back. They recorded a deferred gain of $1M and amortized it over the term of the lease (still going) and letting that gain every month reduce the rent expense. Since this deal is cash free debt free shouldn’t we treat this as a debt like item? They received the cash in a prior period but we are now stuck with the payments. Debating how to quantify the adjstmnt
