Any San Antonio 🐟 here? Thinking about relocating from Chicago and am wondering if it is a good place to raise a family

Take me with you... I’ll split moving costs. I’m trying to live in Dallas or Houston

I just relocated to TX from NYC but I’m in Dallas. Overall TX has been great. I have heard good things about San Antonio.

Dallas would be better to raise family. SA is a very boring town and there’s not much around except the river walk

I did the same thing but from a different metro city. Some considerations for you...good food choices outside of tex-mex is limited. Events (concerts, stand-up, circus etc.) usually skip this city in favor of Austin. Not much to do here and even the tourist attractions suck. Finally, there isn't a "real" Deloitte office here so you'll have to choose between Dallas, Houston, and Austin. Ever feel like flying to your office city on Thursday for networking or events to get home Friday evenings? Nope not me...

Stone Oak: far north of downtown but nice suburb residential area Alamo Heights: Old money neighborhood Pearl District: New development with restaurants, farmers market etc. Apartment living LA Cantera/RIM: Area around the big mall

I'm in SA. It's a decent place to raise a family, but bad for travel. There aren't enough direct flights.

HEB is a plus. I'll def miss this when I move away from here

Not for consultants or parents. Schools are not that good. Flight options aren’t great. Better to live in Austin and drive down there once in a while as a get away. They have sea world and six flags.

Better than SA IMO. But not as good as Dallas / Houston. In addition to airport Austin has a lot more to offer than SA.

I live in a HCOL city and am still not being paid enough to save/live . I have all of the tools/ skill sets to leave consulting and go into big tech . Before going out to market myself and get a new job should I even ask D for a raise ? I’m frustrated because I’m adding a lot of value to my current engagements and I think I’d have a good business case for a raise. On a side note I see people leaving left and right here which is not a good sign!

A colleague shared with me the presentation they have prepared for their promotion case. I worked with them on multiple projects during the year and I can clearly see that some of the claims on the deck are wild exaggeration or lies. For example, managed changes in scope for Project X including contract changes. Plot twist: there never was a change of scope for Project X and the contract is exactly the same. How can people be so dishonest? How far can you go before truth catching up?
