To use the client’s end of trip facilities (shower, locker and bike rack), individuals need to pay an annual fee of $100. Do you think it would be fair to expense this back to the client?

$100 should just go to non billable expenses. Talk to your Project Mgr.

Would they rather pay for a rental car or Uber every day for a year?

Ask your engagement manager, but normally we pay for expenses related to commute to the local office. Everything beyond that is expensed to the project.

I joined EY GDS in Jan 2022 and still haven't got any billable project. In such cases, is there a chance that they don't give confirmation once the probation period is over? Is there a chance of layoff?

Struggling with JE’s for earnouts paid post-acquisition. Amounts were paid out to former owners in a prior period. I think the entry was Dr. accrued expense; Cr. Cash. Now it’s sitting in accrued exp, so I asked why and the client says it was wrong and is reclassing now by Dr. Investment in Sub; Cr. Accrued Exp. (Investment in sub rolls up into current liability.) Does this make sense? I’m so confused about what this should be.

Plaintiffs personal injury. I file “claim A.” There’s a lien or assignment for portion of settlement proceeds of “claim A.” Then claim B” by other Atty over debt at issue by the lien holder, naming my client as a defendant. I’m not involved in “claim B” but that case deals with a lien/assignment related to my case “claim A”. The question is: When trying to settle a case - can I talk directly to the lien holder (they have a lien in my case) or is that unethical (b/c they’re represented by Atty)

Hi lady fishies! I joined a new agency this year and am on 2 big accounts - one has more men (including strat leadership) and the other has more gender mix (strat leader is a woman). Not surprisingly, I’m struggling to feel respected & smart on the male-dominant one. The other? Praise from my team & the client and recognition of my efforts & smarts. Frustrating 😔🥺 Any tips on how to combat feeling like a loser on a male-dominant team?

Two years post-MBA, promoted early, and don’t feel like I’ve learned a lot, other than program/project management. Knowing I’m paid what I am to be ‘on call’ to the team/client, should I expect a pay cut if I jump to industry in search of WLB? Unlike a lot of posts on here, I know the likelihood of the unicorn job where I work 40 hours/week and receive a pay bump is probably unlikely, especially without a technical background/skillset. Just trying to get some perspectives. Thanks!
