It’s really insane. My cousin and her husband just bought a 2000 sqft house in south SF for $1.6M. And the school district isn’t even good. It’s way worse than the NY area. In a NYC suburb you can get way more square footage and A+ schools for that amount.

Certainly things you can do to reduce your cost of living, but life is going to be tight on a junior’s income. Might want to wait until you’re a bit more senior and making more of the moneys.

Recently exited to corporate as a manager in a strategy role. The place is great, but I realize I don't have dedicated folks to make slides for me similar to consulting, and end up making quite few on my own (which is not the most efficient - since it has been a while since I made slides e2e with the formatting et. al). When one tends to apply consulting rigor into the process - this can get quite time consuming. Anyone else face this? How did you handle it?
