Depends on what you want for you. Just do pharma work? Make money? Have a decent balance between work and family? Win awards? It’s a very nice agency, full of opportunities and people that want to do great work. Made the move few months ago and I can tell you: won’t leave anytime soon.

Looking into leasing a new car and wondering if it makes sense to pay any fees/taxes upfront or roll everything into monthly payments? I don’t like the idea of paying interest on fees I can afford to pay but I’m reading it’s better to not put any money down in case something happens to the car—you’re completely out the money. That being said the lease does come with gap insurance. Money factor of 0.0015 (3.6% interest). I’m thinking at least pay the title/registration.

hi fishies! I'm wondering what people think about ESG investing and how much ESG metrics / data points impact your decision to invest (or not invest) in a company? Would you find it helpful to see things like "percentage of women on the board", "ceo pay" etc. within an investment app before making a decision to purchase stocks from that company?

Honestly I don’t think agencies are going to exist the way they do 15-20 years from now. The way they operate is designed for burn out for employees.
