I don't think it's allowed per policy, but I could see the argument if that's your "dinner". As a manager, I wouldn't have a problem with that.

No, and don't expect to get much of a dinner in most airline lounges anyway. The AMEX Centurion lounges (platinum and centurion cards only) will get you a proper meal though. You'd get far better food from airport sit down restaurants for less than the $50 it will cost for many airline lounge day passes.

Official policy is no and don't try to do the whole dinner thing - they'll say it's a reasonable expense and could trigger an audit

Can someone help me figure out what a qualified transportation expense is. Will be commuting from Jersey to my job in the city and my company said this plan would allow me to set aside pretax & after tax funds from paycheck to pay for qualified commuter expenses. Is this a good deal ? Am I basically paying for it and then getting reimbursed ?

How many people’s jobs would you absorb before requesting your role be re-evaluated/leveled/comp adjusted? I am already doing one person’s job when we decided not to backfill them when they left and just got nominated to take over someone else’s responsibilities while they are out on a multi-month leave. I could handle this if I was an individual contributor but I also have a significant team I’m managing and the additional responsibilities are coming at their expense which is unfair to them.

I’m currently a senior accountant and I mainly focus on accruals and expense analysis. Prior to this role I was in State & Local Tax. I wasn’t sure if tax is where I wanted to be at the time especially because I heard you can get pigeonholed. I actually kind of miss the work that I used to but also found tax can be very mentally challenging. I’m struggling with trying to decide if I should go back to tax or maybe use my current experience to go into FP&A or a Finance related role. Advise please!
