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.

Does anyone know what can be done for erroneous negative reviews on health grades or similar websites? There’s a patient who wrote a review about me and I checked months worth of notes - I never saw this patient. She cited a virtual visit that we don’t do at the office and said the appointment was at a time I wasn’t at the office. Not sure why they wrote the review but I wish it could be removed because I’m worried it will affect my future career prospects. Thanks!

Just got an offer at ACN as a Strategy Manager and HR made it clear that parental leave was 2 weeks fully paid for men. Theoretically up until 12 weeks is covered by NY State ($900 weekly). What would you do? Have you seen men take a few months off for parental leave in consulting even if unpaid?
