At a former company, they let you expense $20 for working 10+ hours in a day, but you could never use it because it would always be rejected. Recently started at a new firm, and I had a rough week last week (two 14+ hour days). New firm has a similar policy, so I asked. Was told not to submit the $20 reimbursements. Just as I was about to get frustrated, he told me I should get dinner for my wife and me. Only rule was to keep it under $100. Don't like working 14 hour days, but this was nice.
Folks who have applied for L1A in the past - what do you respond when questioned about budgetary authority? I understand that this would be the expense budget on my clients which I’m managing, but not sure if I’m missing anything else
If I have to cancel (non refundable) plans due to work, is it reasonable to ask the firm to reimburse me?
“Per diem” meal expenses are EXPLOITATION. $50 is not enough for a single meal at a hotel restaurant, let alone an entire DAY for food. Shifting travel costs onto your employees = evil. Yes i mad :<
Per diem dinner allowance for Orlando at KPMG seems low at $33. That city has become much more expensive especially since it’s essentially a resort town. What do other firms allow?

Do you think I could expense a weekly meal delivery service (it’s precooked - just have to microwave it) during busy season? Would be delivered to the office and is cheaper than ordering in.
Accenture Managers & up: does Accenture pay a new phone + plan? Or do they just reimburse the cost of your personal plan. Turning in my one and only phone to D and trying to decide if I need to buy a new one now or figure out a temporary solution until Accenture sends one in about a month when I start.

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.

Digital Producers - what questions do you ask in interviews to try to suss out if the shop is a hot mess or a sweatshop? I’m interviewing at a few smaller places that seem to do good work but...
Are there laws against being employed for a public accounting firm and working in a different country, or is it just firm preference? I’m already 100% remote, and I love my job, but my husband just bought a business in Europe and we are moving there (he is an EU citizen, so the shutdown doesn’t apply to us). I don’t want to quit, but I don’t want to sound stupid to ask to continue working remotely, just from a different country.

This is a pretty broad question but: any tips on getting your resume seen by a recruiter/hiring manager without a referral? Does reaching out to people outside your network via LinkedIn really work? How would you suggest tackling the job market today? Thanks in advanced :)

Looking for title advice within data roles. My current role is a high level IC, I am looking at other roles and a little uncertain - should I consider Data Science roles, senior data science roles? Data Analyst Roles? Staff/manager data analyst? What would look like a step down ( in the future)? What would look like a lateral move? What titles are a promotion? There seems to be limited amount of standardization between data roles and titles.
How do you break into PE Ops from a mid tier consulting firm like Accenture or the big 4?
Hi bowl, I'm not okay today. I woke up feeling off, then my project told us that my workstream is ending this coming Friday. I feel like an after thought, I feel so anxious and so tired. I know I should eat today but I just want to lay down in bed and disappear. I'm sorry for this post, I just needed to write this and cry as I do it.
