SoCal. Not even a close decision

SoCal. If you are even a little bit social, you will not fit into the tech nerd scene in the bay

+1 SF has the worst social scene I’ve experienced. Tech grads starting at 150k+ out of college engenders the worst personalities coupled with a faux hipster progressiveness

With that salary, in either area, you will be broke as a joke.

SoCal is very expensive now. 3000 rent for 2 bedroom apartment (1000 square foot) is quite average and on the lower end I would say. But it’s so beautiful here. Very relaxed

like

Cheaper in SoCal and probably slightly more normal people. People in the bay love making where they work a personality trait

SoCal for a better life. Bay for better exit opps

C-Suite is becoming more and more remote at this point.

San Diego > Bay > LA


So… depends where in SoCal they’re at. I wouldn’t want to live in LA.

Hello all,

I have 13 yrs of exp. and currently working as Senior Data Scientist. Now I got an offer from Bangalore with 40% hike which requires relocation and my current salary is 25LPA. Currently I am not ready for relocation with small kid and my husband is working in Hyderabad. Is it good idea to resign now and look for Hyderabad open positions in my notice period of 3 months? Or should I wait till I get something in Hyderabad? Is less notice period will help in getting more offers?
