There's a rule where you have to live within x hours/miles from your home office. If they moved to a different city than their local project city, I'm surprised they're allowing travel expenses

Uh... What?

Are you talking about like living at the client site city but pretending to travel to your technical home office?

Someone is originally from another office, got staffed locally. Eventually moved out here with family without switching offices, but considers it travel. So they get per diem every day, including weekends.

That's why I was shocked - I'm down for free breakfast lunch and dinner every day

lol hook me up with that life too

Your manager would know you're not booking flights...

My creative marketing agency, Codeword, is hiring account people! Senior Account Managers, an Account Director, and Account Managers.

If he was called in, he would not have the option to turn it down.
