dangling time adverbials?

Postby navi » Sat Aug 03, 2013 4:26 am

Are these sentences grammatical:

1-After a certain age, you cannot expect people to adapt rapidly to new environments.

2-After ten years of hard work in their office, they let Jeff go.

3-They let Jeff go after ten years of hard work in their office.


4-They let Jeff go after working for ten years in their office.


Gratefully,
Navi.
