Kelsey, I have lived in nyc for years, tried other places, and decided I can live nowhere else. It’s not for everyone. But if you think it might be for you, it’s absolutely worth trying once in your life. Good luck!

The public transportation is less and less reliable the more people ride it. You'll spend and hour usually commuting to and from work. Salaried positions mean indentured servitude.

This also proves that NYC companies are pushing down wages with the excess of creatives looking for work.

@kelsey yeah the market is terribly competitive and the hours are insane. Did you like having a life? Kiss it good by cause your life is owned by the company.

Don’t. If you do, don’t make it hard on yourself to leave. Pack lite. The market here sucks. There’s nothing wrong with coming here for a year to build your resume or portfolio and bounce.

CD sounds like they were on the ladder before agencies got greedy with wages.

Where outside of NY. I’d love to relocate. Please enlighten me.

Thanks for the hope OP ... San Francisco’s got a lot but cost of living makes it undesirable to me. I’m focusing on Florida. Yep, I said it. My family is there. (I’m in LA).

I'm aiming for cities where the cost of living is 15-30% less than New York.

London. Big city. Lower cost of living Less of a hassle. No Trump. And they speak English!

I’m interviewing for a non-technical, mid-senior level role at Stripe. I know culture is really important to them.

I know efforts like this can rub people the wrong way, so I just wanna be careful before deploying them. Anyone who works there or knows them able to comment on this?
