Is there really an ethical argument to booking flights on CWT? My back-of-the-napkin math says we give up roughly $20 per week in credit card rewards (CSR at 4.5%).

Ethical? The company directly pays for air travel - reducing admin overhead for processing and auditing the largest component of travel expenses that the client pays for - and your concern is for yourself....

$600-$1000 per year would be a great benefit to provide our employees. Is our processing and auditing worth (20+17)=$37 per ticket? That sounds expensive.

Booking through CWT allows ACN to know when we are flying, and they get notified if there is an emergency. I was on a plane that slid off the runway and I had to go to the hospital for a couple of stitches. My project was notified before I even had a chance to call my family. And that's before we even begin to discuss the re-booking services they provide or the ability to retain the value of an unused non-refundable ticket.

Accenture used to still give you credit card points when you booked on CWT. The charges wouldn't show on your bill, but you got the points. They changed the policy on that a few years ago...I assume to save money.

I've had nothing but trouble with CWT from a rebooking standpoint. There is no travel insurance (read the CSR benefit). The project and firm notification of air travel issues is the first valid reason so far, but could be recreated elsewhere on the cheap.

Ok - here it is - you are a cog in a machine - the likelihood is that you won't be here too many years -and churn is a reality for services companies - they care about keeping ppl with rare skills - which is a really small % of ppl - everybody else is replaceable with younger cheaper ppl
