In my late 20's, but I've lived in my current city (nonUS) my whole life. I was really looking forward to moving to NYC and landed a job there earlier this year although I'm still WFH and not in the US yet. A recruiter reached out to me for a new role but it would be in my old city. I'd be pretty fine with both roles themselves. But the NYC one would pay about 140$ TC (not sure about bonus yet, this is a guess), and the non-NYC one would be maybe $25-30 more. Is the $ worth the city sacrifice?

I think the life experience you really want for yourself is worth more than the money.

No it’s not. I lived in NYC for 5 years and it was one of the best experiences of my life! You can always go back to your old city in my opinion but landing a job in NYC at relatively good compensation isn’t always so easy. And in NYC if you play your cards right you can land that same 25-30k extra in a year or 2.

Agree with this. Currently living in NYC and I can attest the fact that it's one of the best life experience n extremely grateful for it given that I m an immigrant. As mentioned by others,you can always go back if you don't like it here or even land a job with higher pay in NYC. I vote for you to move :)

Thanks for the perspectives! 😊 I did also think my sanity was pretty important (have been really depressed the last few years and it's definitely tied to my city/people here). I totally was thinking the same as all of you, just wasn't sure if I was letting myself be too emotional but I'm glad to hear it!

Whats your visa situation?

Will need to wait for a few months before I can move because I'm using the L1 (I can't use the TN because of my education and H1B is always a big risk of course)
