Yes you can stay every weekend if you'd like. We have a few people who do that on our project. I don't believe that one falls under the 750 or flight cost lesser of threshold that we use for alternative weekend travel, just book as normal business expense. Apartments I believe would be a talk with your team's PMO/partner

Or hotels at client sites? Any guidance? This is for EY

I just called ey help and we can do that it seems.suddenly wondering why did I travel this Many days back home when could have stayed at the hotel😅 seems ey also sponsors Oakwood apartments instead of hotels. I guess it would be run by the pmo but good to know such options exist. Any options like a residence inn where I could cook and stuff as well?

@ey1 any chance you could put me in touch with someone who does the multi week? I am unsure if we need additional documentation to reimburse or if we need to call Amex to document?

Im a recent grad on a tech implementation project for a small firm. I’m finding it challenging because I’m expected to know how to solution a user problem based on the system that I really don’t know all the ins and outs of. I enjoy the req gathering/PMO activities, but thinking of data mapping and integrations is such a new way of thinking than a typical strategy-based case study. Do strategy ppl find these tech implementation difficult?

Funny how things change, and now I realize that those consulting skills are more important as you move up in corporate America
