Hi 🐠! I’m relocating from Chicago to The Bay Area later this month, and am wondering what neighborhoods are relatively more affordable and safer to live in. Currently we are considering the following cities:
Fremont, Union City, San Mateo, San Jose. Work is in Menlo Park. Married with no kids.

San Mateo is nice bc it’s right between SF and Menlo Park, plus quick access to the bridge to Oakland and also an easy drive to Half Moon Bay.

Thanks a lot everyone. We are switching focus to Mountain View and Sunnyvale now given it’s a lot closer to work.

I live in Novato and absolutely love the north bay. It’s beautiful and possibly less crowded than east and South Bay. If you love nature and being outdoors, that’s the place to be. Marin County in general is pretty safe. Plus The fog doesn’t make it to Novato!

I actually live on the border of San Mateo and Burlingame. Both are great towns with lots to do in my opinion!

Live in Daly City. Everything is accessible.

Consider Redwood City if you plan on going into the office frequently. San Mateo is not bad either. San Jose is a long commute, Fremont/union city even more so.

Foster City, Burlingame, Millbrae, and Campbell

Looking for advice on how to career pivot. My husband is a general manager for a company that has HQ in a different state so growth opps are limited unless we move.

He has so much potential but I feel like all people see on his resume is that he’s a GM of a location as opposed to an operations leader especially when applying to jobs on LinkedIn.

Pros:

- fairly decent place to work (from someone who worked with the Vancouver and San Jose offices). never met a blue badger (permanent employee) who had awful things to say.

- Ashley Goodall (their SVP, Methods & Intelligence) co-authored a brilliant book on leadership and people management called “Nine Lies About Work” that makes me believe they can be an awesome place to work

Cons:

- red badgers had low morale since they’re contract workers and can be terminated at any time

What is your general opinion of Teachers' Unions which protect teachers from being removed based on their poor pedagogy over many years?

Hi folks, I had a quick question around remote work. My office is in San Francisco but I worked remotely from NJ for clients on the WC. How should I answer the question, “did you earn income working remotely by providing the services in a different state than the state you originally engaged employment with it”? If it matters, I never set foot in CA.

While most teachers are protected by teacher unions, I feel my voice hasn’t been heard at all with my concerns of going back to school next week. Our diocese has decided on full return 5 days/ week for all 42 schools despite a recent increase in COVID in our communities. Every other school that I know of in my state is either choosing remote learning to start the year or a hybrid approach, yet that was not an option for us. Are other Catholic schools I. The same boat? Stay safe!

Hi all, I have an offer for 63k in the Phx office for entry level tech consulting. Just wanted to know if I should negotiate for a higher salary or potential sign on bonus. I was also curious about the promotion structure for the company. To my understanding, promotions are more frequent than B4 due to it being smaller in the consulting world and was wondering how long it would take to hit senior consultant and manager levels.

To what extent to platforms facilitate union formation? To what extent do they discourage it? You'd think websites like glassdoor, linkedin, and this one would all be in an incredibly powerful position from the point of view of union organizing and the way they design the site could work for us or against us. So I'm asking two questions - how do we use the sites to build solidarity and organize unions but also can the sites better facilitate this process?
