The Community is a sweatshop shit hole, pardon my Spanish.

None of those places are great. Edelman makes lots of cheap social content and events. The Community is home to Verizon mediocrity and very long hours. And Rokkan is home to those awful Cadillac spots. Some better options that are not that unattainable: FIG, Chiat, McCann, FCB, 360i, Grey

The cofounders have gone off the deep end. It’s part of Publicis stay away

Edelman is a PR agency, not an ad agency.

They call it firm, not agency. They think making a presentation deck is job done. Not selling it, not putting it out in the real world.

Potentially dumb question here: I am starting law school soon and will not be employed (net income of $0 assuming I don’t get a good summer internship next summer). Does it make sense for me to sell my personal investments next year (assuming my income will still be zero) so I’m paying a 0% capital gains tax rate? I’d just rebuy all of the same stocks immediately… am I missing something?
