M&C Saatchi is very generous. If you work late you get a cab home and an expenses dinner. No questions asked.

Saatchi pretty generous with expenses...I've had zero problems and have had some expensive dinners with clients. DLBi was similar...not too much scrutiny but I know it was dependent on who your admin was

like

Mediacom has the same policy. Expensed dinner after 8, expensed ride home after 9. They want you to keep dinner under $20, which can be tough in Manhattan.

I see the ring as more of a gift to the future bride that is an expense that can be sold for money if needed, but isn't an investment. I'm fine w/ lab grown, he is not. Thoughts?

I’ve been off my last billable project for about a month, but my firm has had me putting in full days to work on important internal initiatives and business development that are being taken very seriously, and that include deadlines, etc. very similar to the work I’d do while on a project. Is it likely I’ll be laid off if this continues for another couple of months? How long do you think my firm might let me stay employed like this if they continue to have this much non-billable work for me?
