So just curious.... I’ve been working over 10 client hours a lot last week and have ordered overtime meals 3 times and ubered home 3 times on firm’s expense. Will people say anything or cut my hours?

Why isn’t it billed to the project code?


lol P1 thanks yeah that makes sense. Was just worrying....


P1 does that make a difference? Sometimes we use project code sometimes it’s GA

"cut your hours" are you an intern on an hourly wage?

K1 I’m full time. I mean are they gonna pull me off from my billable hours because I’m reimbursing more frequently than others.

As long as you are working the full 10 hours, you will be fine. Charging expenses to G&A have a high likelihood of being flagged. Make sure to charge them to a project code.

Meals and Ubers are small dollars. Think about it. If you’re billed at $250/hr, and you billed 50 hours...

P2 why is charging GA a high likelihood of being flagged? My senior said to charge GA unless the budget is fat....

Charging hours to a G&A code is fine but expenses are a different story. Expenses charged to a G&A code are paid for by PwC. Expenses charged to a client code are paid for by the client. In you are working for a client, they should be paying for the expenses.

Gotcha, thanks P2

What do I say? FYI- this happened last month too so I billed additional hours separately. I just don’t have that extra time this month.

Has anyone else noticed a difference in the credentials of the new associates your firm has hired during the pandemic compared to those hired through the traditional route? Seems like my firm is hiring from schools/firms that it almost certainly wouldn’t have pre-pandemic. Curious whether this is a meaningful change in approach to hiring, a consequence of having a ton of work to go around, or a sign that others with more typical credentials are avoiding my firm (or some combination).
