Have finally gotten past the mindset of wanting to order the most expensive dish just because I can expense it.
I will be joining Google in 2 weeks and want to keep my current Corp number. Does google reimburse for a personal cell or do I have to get a corporate phone ? Also is there a preferred provider in USA?
I'll be renovating my house (gut all existing bathrooms and kitchen, extend house to make room for an extra bathroom). It's currently my primary residence but I likely have to move in early 2022 to another city where I also own a house and then I plan to rent my current residence via Airbnb. What should I consider from a tax perspective? For example, if my current residence becomes an investment property before or when I renovate, does the renovation count as a tax deductible expense?

Has anyone moved from a H/MCOL city to a small town or rural area? Any regrets in regards to career progression, networking, or lack thereof? I'm thinking of making the move this winter in order to cut my housing expense by more than half and to put my daughter in better Catholic school. My employer doesn't care where we live so long as we can get to an airport. I grew up in a small town, so it wouldn't be a shock to me, just worried about how it may affect my career trajectory.
Does your firm reimburse mileage related to driving into the office to work overtime on a weekend? EY does, how about the other firms?

At your firm what’s the denominator on utilization? 2080? Or is it calculated after provided PTO, sick days, holidays, etc. (e.g. at 9 weeks of PTO/sick/holidays, would be 1720)?
I feel sorry for the agencies denying me. Over 50 large scale events & 20+ brand activations produced. I’ve done it all from ideation to client management, execution & omnichannel strategies. Rare
Thinking about switching to Accenture from EY. What's Accenture's expense policy like? Can you choose your own hotel? Breakfast, lunch, dinner amounts? Meal averaging if allowance? Per diem? Airlines?

Will I be at a disadvantage during the application process if I do require a visa in the US? If so, what are the options to break into the US? Targeting strategy and ops roles. Thanks for your tips!

What’s in a PE operations role? Is it a good transition from FDD? Is there a salary bump? Is the prestige the same? What about work life balance? Is it better than FDD at a Big 4?

Has anyone in partner ranks been able to take an actual, fully disconnected vacation of at least a full work week in the last 18 months? Genuinely curious.
Mask off: Journalist to freelance copywriter. Started working full-time under contract for an agency that won't hire me. I've freelanced for agencies and in-house marketing teams, but I'm always the outsider looking in. I want to transition to a full-time permanent gig. Interviews seem to go well, 2 agencies went to 3 interviews and nothing. I know I'm totally missing something that agency insiders would understand. Would love advice on navigating uncharted territory. Thank you!
Which non-SWE roles are worth it at FAANG in terms of pay? Will any pay better than MBB?

Trouble networking virtually; I started recently, 3 months ago. I am not sure how projects/internal moves work but I was wondering if anyone has advice on networking virtually? I am finding it tricky because I don't know anyone apart from my team & I can't view Talent Marketplace because I am on a billable project, not sure how long it will go. I enjoy my work and not looking to move just yet, I wanted to see what else is out there and looking for opportunities to network with more people.
Aye, someone re-post the comp hack!
Why healthcare agencies only serve big pharmaceutical clients with inyectable or pill products and don’t work with “consumer healthcare” brands like Advil, Tylenol, Aquafresh, Pepito-Bismo, etc?
