Miami is the gateway to Latin America and, as I was leaving years ago, financial services was growing there because of that connection. The problem is that the rest of the place was and still is more people fighting over the same size pie (real estate, tourism, restaurants, support for the city) and other industries weren’t really coming along. I don’t know if it’s changed, but Miami’s brightest leave for other parts of the US and companies generally sent their own people down. The weather will be great October through March or April then it will become a rainforest. If you’re younger and paid well you’ll have some fun (I had one and not the other) but the shallowness may wear on you after a while. Yes other places can be shallow and dumb but places like LA and NYC have a larger variety of kinds of people and industries to be involved with. DC tends to have a large professional crowd. But it has been about 6 years so who knows? Maybe some current residents or more recent ex-pats (you could consider Miami another country) have some more up to date advice. PS your car insurance will almost double.

Which financial services companies have you worked for in the DC area?

Ugh same. Miami sounds so nice. I feel like the big employers are Carnival and Royal Caribbean
