Any thoughts on Manhattan beach or hermosa beach for a single 29 Male - have the option of moving out west and San Diego and LA are on my mind. Love being outdoors (road biking, running, would love to pickup surfing & volleyball), enjoy nice restaurants, meeting new people, etc. I won’t know anyone in either city so hopefully it’s not impossible to make friends 😬
Looking at making a move from a top 20 city to PNW farm style living. Work from home permanently and live peacefully. I'd be close enough to SEA that I'd be able to make it work if I had to (ie if remote ops reversed course) Anyone thinking similar or already done so? Also,has anyone sold their house to an institutional buyer? Obviously, you may get less cash, but it will also take longer to sell, so you are paying holding costs, etc and taking on more market risk.
Can any BOs share good websites or references to get started on things one would need helo with starting businesses, like entity filing, accounting, bookkeeping, invoice, payroll, and other services?

PHL is a nightmare airport

Can someone explain how so many people have competing offers for negotiation? I keep hearing “don’t expect to have a strong case for negotiation unless you have a competing offer”. Wouldn’t that have to line up perfectly with you interviewing for multiple roles at the same time?? An offer has a quick expiration period... or do you negotiate with an expired offer you rejected within the past few weeks.
Can somebody sum up the Ralph Watson lawsuits please? Four women accused him of inappropriate behavior. He was fired for it. And now he’s suing CP+B AND the four accusers? Is that correct? Yikes.
Hello! I'm trying to get a grasp of a good base salary and TC for the Chicago area. I'm a UX contractor being converted to full time and I received an offer for 100k base + 10% bonus. For context this is like a 30% increase from my salary as a contractor and the company isn't a tech company. I have about 2 years of general industry experience (web dev, web design, agency work) and 1 year of actual product design and finishing up a master's in HCI as well.. Is this reasonable?

I am on H1b visa and have not been able to decide if I should buy a house. I am in Seattle and house is a big investment here. Other than visa, my parents are in India and that is another variable. Assuming some of you had similar situations, why was your thought process? What did/would you do?
If I’m planning on applying round 2 (due Jan 5), what is the latest possible date I can take the GRE? Online says it takes 10-15 days to send official reports, but I’m assuming that’s cause of the essay scoring (and your quant/verbal score immediately shows up after the test). Does that mean I need to take it by Dec 20 at the latest? Or could I hypothetically wait until Jan 4?
