Do the math. Aren't you a consultant?


Anything is better than government


Seattle is a great city and the west coast in general will be a slower change of pace. Lots of growth happening in Seattle and if you're an outdoorsy type, you'll probably like it. It truly does rain A LOT so if that bothers you, you should take that into consideration. You're still relatively young so if you are ready for a new (and better paying) adventure, I'd say go for it!


@A1 - yes, I did and it looks good on paper but to be honest, I guess I'm more hesitant about making a big move by myself to a city where I don't have a network. I've moved around a lot but I've been finding it more difficult to find a solid network the older I get.


Relocation assistance is a ploy to trap you there for at least 2-5 years. If it's worth it, you won't need the assistance to make things work.




From to DC to where?

DC to Seattle

How old?

31. Good point, PwC 1.

Not worth it for the money alone. I used to do federal and the switch basically felt like starting over again. Industry projects are much more faster paced.

Thanks for the advice, CSA1. Are you happy that you made the switch?

Do it man

Do it - you're finding it harder to network because it's DC and the East Coast in general. I should have done it when I had the chance.

Thanks for the advice, all!
