considering I don’t want roommates and don’t want to live in a <400 sqft microstudio apartment?

I would expect rent of a studio / 1br to be close to 2k a month. Eating out has massive variance depending on preference. Generally I find the food options in Seattle to be pretty expensive. I live in NYC :)

You can expect to spend 2-2.5k a month on rent if you want a 1bdr downtown in an apartment building with nice amenities. And ~1k if you eat out a lot. Source: I also relocated from the Midwest and I live downtown Seattle in SLU.

I live in Manhattan and would kill to find a garage for $200/month

If you don't mind me asking, what level/title/practice are at?

Do most VC’s operate like a start up? Just got an offer and they don’t even have a benefits sheet for me to look at (like a mobile stipend, gym stipend, etc.). Literally just base comp, carry, PTO. And haven’t met a single person from HR. Is this normal or a bad sign?

Curious for insight from others with similar experiences. I was at a national firm for 4 years, left due to burn out for a corporate accounting position, hated it. Came back to public at a regional firm, where I’ve been for just over a year. Im already getting burnt out again and doing WAY more than my salary should expect. A former director at my first firm recently reached out with an accounting manager position at an early phase VC firm. (Continued)

This person started the discussion from the angle that Black people have “misconceptions” - which plays into the narrative that we are too dumb to evaluate the info and land on a decision which is right for us.
