I wish I could put expenses on my persona l card


Your gf should've received a corp card on her first day of work. Per diem is by city. Bigger question is why is she lying to you? What'd you do to be so untrustworthy?


I received a corp card even as an intern. You either use personal card/charge per diem and get reimbursed or charge actuals on corp card. Depends on the project.


We do that at ACN

A1 you don't have to use your personal card tho

It may only be because the work cards would take too long to arrive. And yes per diem depends on location so you get more $ if higher cost city. Makes sense to me?

You also use corporate card for airline/hotel/rental car but can use your own card for other expenses

It's not by zip, just by city per GSA rates

She has a corp card as well but was told you can only charge travel and lodging on it. For meals there's a per diem set depending on the city and must use her personal card. Why can't everything be charged on the corp card?

I charge everhthig on personal card because poiints. I even use it to expense team diner.

Personal card for per diem use is for convenience, not a requirement. You then just run the per diem expense to your personal account in one line item rather than having each $2 coffee in your expense buffer

She was lied to

Should I apply for both SDR/BDR or AE/CS? Or all of the above?

Hi Fishes,

Millennial & Gen Z White folks who are really shocked at the treatment of Blacks, it’s likely because your parents sheltered you from racial injustices your life. So, before you ask what rioting has to do with civil rights, ask your parents why they didn’t want you having Black friends growing up.


So I’m getting checked because I possibly have an ulcer. It has been a crazy stressful week... can I claim worker’s compensation??


I'm feeling so incredibly alone right now, like if I disappeared it wouldn't matter, and it's just such an awful feeling. It's stemming from how my analyst on my team is leaving the company and I'm going to be left to pick up the pieces with our awful lead. I'm also wondering now what the hell I'm doing with my life, like why the hell am I staying here and what am I doing. This feeling just makes me want to sit here and cry.
