Is the fact that your firm does not reimburse lunch expenses on the road a good enough reason to start interviewing elsewhere?

Agreed! When I was able to drive to client site I always packed my lunch. I'm able to afford eating out every day, but it would be nice to save the $40+ a week and eat healthier. Everything adds up & paying back student loans is no joke.

The "no expensing lunch" rule is absurdity. Corporate: " yeah I'm going to need you to leave your family, get on an airplane, and stay in a hotel working till midnight every week. But don't forget, lunch is on you." Is EY and PWC rate card that low that in order to keep margins they need that extra 40 bucks a week?

That's pretty infuriating. If you were at home you may bring food from home to save money which you obviously can't do on the road, so they're costing you extra money. Plus your options near client site may be limited. It's not a matter of whether you can afford it, it's the principle.

Just expense it as breakfast as well. I get away with it all the time.

So now I'm wondering all the firms that don't reimburse lunch. EY, PWC, Cap Gemini? Sick and wrong.

Why not just charge it through as breakfast like everyone else..? You only get $15 or whatever the breakfast limit is now, but still.

Can you just lump lunch expenses with either breakfast or dinner?

Trust me, even my senses were not ready to feel any pain

Took me to the heights,
It made me realise that I'm not a kite that fly but a Bird in the sky"
