Heard frm a friend at pwc that in consulting they have per diems. Is it for all practitioners and practice? Seems tight on budget.

No per diems - at least within MC in Advisory (not heard of any groups within PwC that typically have per diems)

We have no per diem. We bill actuals and there is policy online about how much you're supposed to be spending.

like

Projects can decide to per diems; however, most decide to do actuals with a limit (typically $50-60). Every meal expense rule is very project specific

Ok. And what's the ratio of local/ travel projects?

@S1, there may very well be specific meal rules for certain engagements, but the statement, "every meal expense rule is very project specific " is incorrect. I have never had a project where we deviated from the standard , published guidelines.

Depends on the contract, but yes - you'll have a daily allotted "allowance" for food. Some projects give more than others, but it's all about the budget

That's what I was surprised about. Not every practice can be on on per diem.

Is this per diem vs actual expenses OP? At DC we generally budget for expenses to be an additional 15% of fees. 100k contract is forecasted to $115k with expenses

P, I've been on PwC and S& projects that have allowed the expensing of lunch, purchasing meals in your home city on Thursday, etc. There are expense policies, not many people follow them down to the last word

Hi is it good to say that I already have an offer letter of one company(X) to another company(Y) to get better offer, I just got scolded by HR for this. also I lost the opportunity in Y.

HR scolded me regarding trust issues, time taken to interview a candidate, you will go and come back again to negotiate and what not, all I wanted to was just to improve my current offer.

Is it ethically wrong, or we should never share what offer we have to anyone.

I feel sad that I just lost an opportunity
