Had a 6am flight, left hotel at 4am, and the Uber only took 20 minutes from midtown, blew my mind

Traffic to LGA is always bad. Always budgeted 75-90 minutes for the ride there just in case. Is it worse than that? If not, learn from your mistake.

I've been waiting for an Uber out for an hour, it's terrible both ways

I recently ended a three-year relationship and are looking to move to a new city to start fresh. I’m looking for an affordable city with good nature perks (mostly hiking, camping).

I’m really interested in SLC, but I’ve also seen people saying it’s kind of conservative. I’m Asian and non US citizen so that’s why I have concerns.

Pros:

- fairly decent place to work (from someone who worked with the Vancouver and San Jose offices). never met a blue badger (permanent employee) who had awful things to say.

- Ashley Goodall (their SVP, Methods & Intelligence) co-authored a brilliant book on leadership and people management called “Nine Lies About Work” that makes me believe they can be an awesome place to work

Cons:

- red badgers had low morale since they’re contract workers and can be terminated at any time
