Cross coastal fish 🐠: Do you think you would need to make more to live in the Bay Area than in NYC to have approximately the same standard of living? Trying to figure out whether to ask for a higher salary in the Bay Area when compared to NYC due to location

Yes absolutely. Housing is dramatically higher in the Bay Area. New York is easier because you can save by choosing to live in a less fashionable (but still safe) area.

I found this to be the case. Also easier to find cheaper “fun” activities and my friend group in NYC is a lot more diverse (in every way including their incomes) so I’m not catching up with the Jones all the time

Depends on your exact situation but I’d say it’s fairly comparable. Maybe if you need a car in the Bay Area it’ll be more expensive overall. Not sure it’s worth using to argue for a higher salary though

The key is whether you think NYC is synonymous with Manhattan and trendy parts of Brooklyn.

Think it depends where in NYC and where in SF; look at a COL adjustment calculator to see how much!

Deloitte ladies. It’s my first green light this Friday... kinda nervous. What should I expect? How does it usually go? Does your coach let you know how much your compensation increases by during the discussion or when do you find that out? Sorry for posting here but the main Deloitte bowl is hostile sometimes.

I am working in a tech startup. We deal with contracts. My job spans a number of areas in the company. I work with Client Success Managers helping clients extract certain data from their contracts, our Data Science Team regarding product development, the Marketing team to help them understand what is currently happening in the contract field and sales. I am not performing the work of an in-house counsel. And since this type of position is fairly new, I wonder how to research salary?
