Corporate cards with a daily maximum depending on the city and which can only be used mostly on business trips. 5 weeks of PTO that you will probably be too busy to use trying to "rapidly advance" your career. I will pass on your koolaid today..

Corporate cards that you use for when you're ordering dinner to eat over our computers like rats while working till midnight. Yeah let's raise our classes to that.

^ idk why your attitudes are demoralizing. You signed up for this line of work, so all of the benefits the big 4 offer are very generous. You need to play the game correctly. It's very easy to max out your PTO and be a top performer, and advance your career with a good attitude (like me). You also tend to get more of what you want with a better attitude.

Husband Relies on Me for Lunch - I know this is dumb, but before the pandemic, my husband ate lunch at the office and I was generally in charge of dinner.

I’m busy during the day, and we have different lunch preference schedules. He does not get how annoying it is to me to have to be in charge of his lunch. Am I in the wrong?
