New York or San Francisco?

I can't stand the startup culture in the Bay Area... everyone thinks what they are doing is so important or disruptive or life-changing, and they hide it all under a guise of modest altruism. At least in NY the egos are easier to spot and dismiss. #NYCgreatestcity #grewupinthebayneverlookedback

NYC all the way baby. Best nightlife, awesome restaurants, never need a car, people that aren’t all weird and techie, close to other important cities, 3 airports. New York is a badass fast paced city and am so happy with my decision to move here. And hey, at least here you won’t be the only one wearing business/biz casual attire

Grew up in SF, essentially ran away to NYC post graduation. I have not had fewer regrets on anything in my whole life. 100% agree with C1. On top of that, NYC has the strongest nightlife, public transport in the bay is SHIT compared to MTA (even with its flaws), and the predominantly white techbro culture in SF is pricing out any semblance of diversity the bay used to have.

A5, I only lived in the Bay for 1.5 years but I lived in Oakland, and I lived in queer co-ops/houses and had a radical, spiritual, black queer community. That was pretty cool. SF was too damn rich for me (and I'm bougie as hell, but the SF wealth felt obscene). Also lived in snoozeville (Sunnyvale) for a few months and it was the exact opposite. SF is a great place to visit. Multiple times. But it's not worth the money to live there, absolutely not. NY is filthy in a grime way. I haven't lived there, but in visiting, it just feels like centuries of filth built up. SF is that new-new. Lol NYC fits me more culturally, but I hate the lack of nature outside of Central Park. That's why I wouldn't be able to live in NYC. There's nowhere to escape to. In SF, you can hide in plain sight. Plenty of deserted streets that still feel safe. Both suck, both are interesting. Only NYC would I give a chance still (because I haven't fully soured my taste yet, as I haven't lived there). NYC is the jetsetting older brother of the nation. SF is the punk, misfit kid. I'm moving to the Straight-Edge father of the country (DC). Lol wish me luck

Looking for thoughts on if you would pursue an MBA given my age, YOE, current pay/track and post-MBA goals. 27M, 3 YOE all in consulting. I recently started a new job as a M1 (data side) and got 160k base + 30k sign on (late joiner so no bonus). I believe I could get to SM in 1-2 years. I don’t want to pivot into IB or PE, probably don’t want to work the hours required for MBB, but enjoy consulting and could see myself exiting to a tech company down the road.
