McKinsey & Company , does everyone get the corporate card? Do people use their own personal card (for the points)? If not is it worth doing any of the amex upgrades?

- Everyone who travels gets a corp AMEX - In North America, hotels can be charged to personal card, flights are booked centrally (not to your corp card), and all other expenses must be booked to your corp card - You’ll hear a few schools of thought, but if you’re not traveling it doesn’t make sense to upgrade your corp card

In other markets/countries, you do not need a corporate card and can do everything on personal card (was in another office previously). This includes hotel, food, cab, everything In the US, same as what it was said above.

Yes, receipts for everything, but thankfully EA took care of that once I got one. Used to be a weekend exercise for many years on the most minor charged item (like a coke in a convenience store in the airport)

Can you keep your travel points if you are using the Corp card? Mck1

Yes but you need to pay the annual AMEX membership fee (~$95/yr). Not worthwhile rn, but pre-covid definitely worthwhile

Has anyone here accepted an offer while the H-1B extension petition is still processing?

My visa expires in early September, so I believe the petition should be approved soon

Hey fish! Have a question on work authorization. If I have an H1B and wife’s on the dependent EAD (after I-140) and I go out of country to work with same company. Does her EAD still continue to be valid? Or does it invalidate the moment the primary visa holder is out of the US.
