by Terri Tierney Clark - Dec, 2014
Every company has an unwritten set of rules. These are the rules that no one reveals; you just have to figure them out on your own. But it’s important that you do or you may be judged by your colleagues. At my company, I learned quickly that the junior employee picks up the tab for client dinners, taxis, and tips.
