Where would you want to work right now if you were located in NYC? Doing cool things, work-life balance, etc.

Wherever you go make sure you’re earning over $100k otherwise NYC is brutal and really not fun


I moved to NYC with $5000, made really little at my first job. It was indeed brutal, but was also a whole lot of fun.

Not sure if this is still possible but plenty of folks live in NYC with very little. There’s just super high income disparity.


I don’t think I’d live in NYC if I wanted work-life balance. I’d live the fast life, work the grind and save a shit ton of money and then leave.


Once you start making a lot, you can save faster


freelance? 🥲


Commenting to find out the answer x




I'd love to be at Google


I'd love WFH and be happy because my family lives in NY 😂

I could never live in NYC. I commend all of you who do! Too expensive for me.

digitas has a good work life balance and perks (unlimited PTO, health and wellness stipends, work your world)

google is great too but i’ve heard it can get pretty stressful and they’re forced to go in 3 days a week

mother ny is on my radar. obvi mother ldn makes cooler shite but I expect that

mschf does cool work but I hear it’s toxic from a colleague who didn’t work there so take that for what it is

Even though we’re working 100% remotely, my manager is against the idea of us working outside the country without letting her know. Rebel that I am, I packed my stuff and booked two months in Europe. I was a bit scared I wouldn’t be able to connect to the vpn but two weeks in now and I’m enjoying life! Anyone with a similar story?


I completed my interview loop at Google on August 12, 2022. My recruiter informed me on August 29th that due to a couple of realignments within the org, the hiring manager has not shared any feedback. I was informed on September 8th that the hiring committee is scheduled the next day (September 9th) and that I can expect a final feedback latest by September 12th. I wasn’t informed of the results and reached out, but the recruiter isn’t replying to my emails. Does this mean I was rejected?
