How much does commercial S&O at Deloitte get for breakfast, lunch and dinner? Also is it allowance or per diem?

What's wrong with per diem??? The joy of this job is eating and drinking like a pro and not paying for it. Who wants to eat Chipotle for dinner and pocket $20 when you can go to a nice dinner and get drunk for a couple hours.

I think the expense policy is the same across the firm, but some projects monitor costs more closely.

We charge actual costs. As long as the project team is okay with it.

Not officially for a while, but I heard from some Managers+ that it's starting to become a more popular option since that's easier to bill

Is there a difference between Deloitte consulting and Deloitte advisory?

DC usually has a bigger budget

Advisory focuses on risk.
Some projects (mainly federal but think commercial is switching) have per diems. The amount depends on city, but is usually very generous (like average $60 a day)

They'll face a lot of backlash from folks at all levels if they switch to per diem.

What's wrong with per diem? It means you can pocket some money (as long as your per diems aren't shit)

Also how does alternate weekend travel work at Deloitte? At EY, as long as the flight to the home location is more expensive than the flight to the non-home location, then it's no cost to you.

For alt travel, almost all project leads will tell you that as long as it's not more expensive than the standard travel back home would be, book whatever you want.

The official Deloitte Policy is $50 per day but it really depends on what your project is okay with. My current project lets you expense $150+ dinners.

They can move to a healthy per diem as long as they don't pull the BS about not billing lunch. You put me on the road, you pay for my food and lodging.

My per diem averages $60 a day. That's $240 a week. I spend about $30 a day ($10 lunch, $20 dinner, and free breakfast at exec lounge). That's $120 a week, or (assuming 40 weeks) almost 5k of tax free dollars per year. Go enjoy your fancy dinners and I'll enjoy an extra vacation or two without even touching my actual income

When I got to my current employer, I learned that they didn’t have the capability to notate in the system that I had contributed $7,300 thus far this year and only allow me to contribute $12,200 more to reach the max. The system also didn’t allow me to contribute a fixed dollar (cont)

I’m on maternity leave right now from a job where I was permalancing. I was planning to go back but I’ve been interviewing and am pretty sure they will make an offer (I know two of the people there). My issue is, I told my other job I’d be out 3-4 months and I just hit 3 months. I don’t want to tell them I’ll be back in a month only to turn around in 3 weeks and say nevermind I’m going somewhere else, but I don’t have an offer yet so maybe that’s what I need to do?
