McKinsey 🐡 how do your expenses work? Do people ever put expenses on a personal card and then expense it or are they strict on only reimbursing expenses on the corporate card? I’m asking because I’m applying for my corporate card now and they’re asking if I want to upgrade from the green card

Only hotels can be on the personal card and the expense team doesn’t quite like that. Also, we don’t pay ourselves for flights or Uber. So rental cars and food would be all you would expense on the corporate card.

None of the upgrade options are worth it IMO. For things you are allowed to expense, it's better to use the CSR. Platinum might be worth it for lounge access, but no one is flying anymore.

Hmmm I see. So flights are strictly on the work card? Deciding if it’s worth upgrading to platinum then...

Gotcha that makes a lot of sense. Thanks for the helpful answers!

I’m interviewing for in-house and firm roles and I’m not sure how to navigate the compensation issue.

I don’t want to leave compensation on the table and end up feeling undervalued later.

At a former company, they let you expense $20 for working 10+ hours in a day, but you could never use it because it would always be rejected. Recently started at a new firm, and I had a rough week last week (two 14+ hour days). New firm has a similar policy, so I asked. Was told not to submit the $20 reimbursements. Just as I was about to get frustrated, he told me I should get dinner for my wife and me. Only rule was to keep it under $100. Don't like working 14 hour days, but this was nice.
