Cuts but spouse has a bright career outlook. Spouse doesn’t want to move to SF but has never been. I’m thinking it might grow on my spouse but don’t want to force them into anything. Is 130k enough for SF? Seems like the area has gotten more affordable due to the pandemic but may only be temporary.

Not sure about your standard of living. But you may do a quick search on the rent/house price based on your standard. That will be one big factor in your increased expenses.

I wouldn’t give up a gov pension job to go to San Fran. But if you like the idea of moving there and want lower COL you could take public transport. I have heard it’s really well run there and the larger companies have their own public transport as well.

(I mean their own transport for employees which would actually be private) lol

Decision - I was out the door of my nationwide ins dfense firm. Was going to top local firm with a lot more clout where everything would be private pay and I’d be more on bigger exposure cases.

I’d still likely do about 50 percent ins defense but I really like the partners I work for, and I handle own cases/take depos, and get autonomy. Am I right to stay?
