Yes. Corporate Amex required for all expenses except hotels (can use personal to get points). Flights are booked centrally. You are responsible to pay the bill so you could use it for other expenses, but you probably shouldn’t.

You’ll get the expense policy when you start and can make a call on how to best use your cards. There are things that get paid for by the firm directly/we can’t expense, the vast majority where we have no flexibility and need to use the corp card, and limited ones like hotels where it doesn’t matter. Don’t obsess about this.

What level are you joining? Joining from big 4?

EM, not from big 4

Yeah basically my philosophy is to just get the credit card that maximizes hotel points as that’s the only one that really makes a difference. Yep ur Corp card can accumulate points but is barely worth it.

Hey OP, if you don’t mind me asking: what level did you come in at?
