I have 2 job offers, one in San Francisco and one with a Fortune 500 company in Nashville. Is going to San Francisco worth it if the pay is comparable?

Even if pay is dollar-to-dollar, your money will go further in Nashville. But it comes down to what lifestyle you want.

It really depends on your lifestyle and preference in terms of culture. San Fran and Nashville are completely different!

If the total comp is the same then your dollar will go further in Nashville. But then you have to live in Nashville.

This is a tough pick - they are both so different! I'm leaning towards San Francisco just based on my previous experiences there but it comes down to lifestyle preferences and goals for your future.

I would go to Nashville but that's cause I can't stand San Fran

If the pay is the same regardless of location, go Nashville. That said, lots of employees have shifted to geographic pay scales. What you get at this company may way above what other employees consider “market value” for Nashville. In changing companies post-lockdown, I've been consistently lowballed and many employers lump Nashville in with the rest if Tennessee. So if there's someone who lives in Jackson, TN they could be offered the same salary as someone living in the downtown Nashville core despite Nashville being 15% more expensive than the rest of the state.

I have a close friend who now lives in a diff city bc of the pandemic. She’s always been not so good at communicating via text & phone but wonderful in person. With us living in diff cities she’s gotten so bad at texting, like a month or so on end going MIA. Now she sent a flurry of texts being like yes let’s hang ASAP now I’m free! How would you guys respond? I love her but want her to be respectful of my time as well & not just go MIA and pick up as if nothing happened
