I got a competitive job offer in San Diego and some of the people I’ve spoken to keep telling me to not go to California because “that place is a dumpster fire”. I’ve read things online about taxes and cost being very high but it doesn’t seem any different than a large east coast city (except the Bay Area). It’s the most populous state so clearly that hasn’t deterred 40 million people. But I don’t understand why people keep telling me it’s a bad idea?

Deloitte tax projecting double digit (percentage) decrease to top and bottom line for FY21 - at least our office / region. Based on that, layoffs seem necessary. Fortunate that the folks laid off hit the market first; if the revenue decrease is truly that significant, have to imagine all other firms will be making the same difficult decisions.
