My lease is up soon and I found a couple of great places on the west side. I’m still learning about the different areas. If you had to choose, Brentwood or Culver City? And why?

Personally, Brentwood - depending on the area of culver, you could have a lot of homeless

I’ve been living in Culver City for 11 years and homelessness isn’t really a problem. They mostly gravitate to Venice Beach.

Brentwood. If you must stay in the Westside haha

Yeah

Seems like Brentwood is the clear winner! Thanks everyone

Neither

Both are different types of places...Brentwood is definitely more affluent and nicer, Culver City has more things to do and is conveniently located

I would agree with this - and if you’re planning to spend more time in Venice, Marina then Culver is clear winner. If you’re going to spend more time in Santa Monica than Brentwood. I personally would have no desire to live in Brentwood in normal times due to 405 traffic

From what I’ve read on here, it seems each job listing has several potential “levels.” I’m shooting for Level 4 based on my compensation goals, 5 YOE post undergrad working in program management/operations. Am I misunderstanding how JDs are written or does it sound appropriate that I appear qualified for jobs with “Lead” “Program Manager” and “Partner” as long as it’s 5 YOE or less in work that I’ve actually got?
