I lived in a small 2 bed apartment on the edge of zone 1 and 2 on a 90k salary.

Thanks for sharing 😊

I d say that to get a decent 1 BR flat in zone 1/2 you’d need 1.5k (depending on which neighborhood of course) + 200 bills (incl. council tax). So 1.7k. Usual rule of thumb is 1/3 of your net on rent max. So you d need 5.1k net (3x1.7). This is about 90k per year.

Yeah depending on your definition of decent, it’ll all be down to the neighbourhood you choose and what your preferences are on a building. For me, a decent 1 bed in zone 1/2 would be £2k per month excluding bills. For the same standard, and a bigger 1 bed you could get for £1400-£1600 in zone 3/4. Remember also, zone 1 doesn’t necessarily mean closer to the office/centre. It takes me 20 mins to get to the office from zone 3/4, but took 45 minutes from zone 2. Look based on travel rather than zones - Citymapper app is your friend here!

From last 2 years I am observing one disparity in IT industry. Freshers who are getting hired from institutes like CDAC are drawing more packages than the seniors who holds more experience . While hiring senior resources companies in the very first call informs that they do not have a budget for the expected salary which he or she is asking for. On the other hand, same company hires a fresher for more salary. Fishes, I want to know what are your opinions on this. No negative comments plz.

I was rejected at Netflix right after passing the recruiter screening. The reason given is that they're looking for someone who has worked on longer-term projects. I worked on my last project for 2 years and have a 6 year project on my resume as well. I guess they don't like that I've been an independent consultant for the last four years and was on 4 projects during that time. Has anyone else encountered this kind of bias against independents working on shorter-term projects?
