$20 a person is what I’ve been told. Covers $10-$15 dinner and delivery costs. Probably depends on what city you are working in

Yeah check the T&E policy. I believe the $ amount is documented in there.

Thought this was a PwC thread but the point probably still stands.

The policy center has a specific amount documented.

100ish

Don’t you guys at KPMG have per diem?

Not for local OT meals. Per diem is for travel.

The answer is $20 for dinner and $12 for lunch. It is literally in the policy.

If it is for two or more people, I would submit as fully deductible group meals which gives you a cushion from the policy amounts.

$20, unless you are a manager or above, in which case limits do not apply and best judgment is used.

I think it’s $20 when I last checked but it’s in the policy for sure

Received an offer for an internal promotion and the verbal offer differed from the written offer. Specifically, the bonus verbalized was 2% higher than the offer letter. HR basically just said ‘sorry, our mistake the letter is right’. What would you do?

Has anyone used short term disability due to a depressive episode? I’m not in a good place and gritting my teeth and working through it is only making it worse. I’m also at a firm that will lower my salary significantly next year if I don’t make my hours this year. Due to some bad luck, we can’t afford for that so happen as we had to use our emergency fund this year, so just taking off isn’t really an option.

Currently SC w >4YOE at T3 firm. Promo to manager likely at YE. Expecting ~15-20% base increase at that time.

Have offer at C level w Tier 2 firm and >40% base increase.

Happy with prospect of comp jump, but nervous about leaving before manager promo.

For context leveling is different at both:
Current: C>SC>M
Prospective: A>SA>C>M

Is taking this offer short-sighted or should I go ahead and accept? Happy to answer any additional questions for context. TIA!
