They made an impression. Technically it can be true without actually meaning much

And the use of the word impressive, while typically used to indicate positive, could also be negative, depending on context and use of sarcasm

If you signed an offer letter would you rescind? I need to either sign or decline and I don't know what the right decision is. New offer is for a much better opportunity but my current employer is dicking me around. So I am not sure if in a few weeks my current employer might get their shit together.

What is a decent pay for a project manager at a commercial construction company. Basically I am trying to find out if I am under paid or not. So I will give some details. I work in central Pennsylvania. I am 24 years old. I have a physics and mathematics degree with a 3.98GPA. I have been a project manager for about 10 months now. Prior to this I managed a painting company. I grew up in construction and had construction and architectural classes in high school, hence how I got into this field.

We just started house hunting in the San Francisco/ Bay area and realised we are short by at least $30K for the down payment for the price range we are looking at.

We don’t have a very lavish lifestyle but not very conservative either. Need to make some changes over next few months to be able to save that money.

Post taxes/rent, we make about $15K per month. What are some suggestions to make short term/ long term lifestyle changes that could allow us to save significantly?
