DFIN: I like their drinks selection in Palo Alto. For actual work, I actually prefer hands on using Workiva nowadays.

When does it become smart to switch to Roth investments? For 20 years I've gone with trad IRAs and 401(k)s; I wasn't a high earner and reasoned I could use the tax benefits and would (hopefully) end my working life with plenty of money in the bank to take the tax loss then. I'm now in early middle age making low six figures--is now the time or do I keep waiting? I know if I take required withdrawals on a trad while I'm still working I could be hit hard, but when I retire I expect to..retire.

Hi all. I need some urgent advice. My F1 visa is ending on May 18, my EAD is expiring on June 30th and I am currently stuck in India. I have two questions. 1. Can I enroll into a CPT program while I am in India? 2. Can I get a F1 visa restamp/extension based on the CPT? I have heard F1 visa requests for CPT are usually denied. Thank you!

After 6mo of successful WFH protocol/productivity during this pandemic, Havas Edge Carlsbad had their agency deemed “essential workers” w/ two days back to work notice, no exceptions. Edge has already had a Covid case and SD county is back to high-risk “purple”. Protocols for testing/return to work were unintelligible at best , misleading at worst. Havas should be appalled given their national stance on safety of workers and embrace of teleworking as the future.

It’s that part that the client actually loved, and when the meeting ended, everyone thanked her and congratulated her, and she said “thanks”without giving me a mention. Even our cd and account folks. Should i let it go?

I am currently unemployed but I am very curious about everyone’s company signature having she/her or he/him or they displayed. Are companies forcing people to write the pronouns you need to choose? I honestly never understood why somebody that wasn’t in the LGBTQ community would specify, and I know people are doing it to show support but if I started working again I don’t think I would want to put that in my signature. It seems political. What are your thoughts?
