I live in one of the most expensive cities in the US, and even with combined incomes of $600k, my SO and I can not afford (nor justify) a 3-bedroom house (median price north of $2M). We also work nonstop and I don’t know how we’ll be able to raise a family with our workload and COL. Looking to relocate and find a new job where I work 40 hours a week so I can raise a family, where COL is much lower but we don’t take a massive pay cut. Does such a place exist?? Or am I looking for a fairy tale?

sanity checking an offer from Booz Allen - I have a quant PhD + 5 relevant YOE, secret clearance in hand, and the exact skill set they are hiring for on the team (title is Sr data scientist, associate lvl, SIG). I told the recruiter that I was expecting $170k+, and their offer came in at $150k. My market rsch of peers in the industry indicates $180+ wouldn’t be unreasonable. They said is $155k is best and final, but this is slightly less than current comp at an FFRDC. Just how BAH rolls?

Hello there. HR (large hospital) contacted me with my new position’s salary offer. I would like to counter it. I did the math and they offered me exactly where my years of service fell on the salary range. With that being said, has anyone in healthcare at a hospital been able to negotiate based off merit, skills, certifications, etc. I know I got the job based off of those things, so why shouldn’t my salary reflect that? TIA
