I'm asking friends and fam and why not UG too.

I hate my job, it's boring as shit. However a position's opened up in the San Francisco office and it's mine if I want it. I'm from NYC fyi.

Same salary, same duties but I'm in California. Should I take it?

no because it would mean living in close proximity to jrsgtpeppers

Do you like NYC? Do you have a place to live out there? What's the time frame? Have you researched any areas worth living in? Routes to your work? Other living expenses?

Do you think San Francisco will be better with the same job if you hate your job? Does your job depend on location? Is there a chance you'll be happy at your new job in SF rather than in NYC? Do you hate your job or location? How do you feel about heat? How do you feel about an almost entirely different shift in your life? Is what you want?


I would still say yes. If you've got nothing you like in NYC, you're going to miss it anyways. But you'll get used to life in SF. Both are going to be consumed when the tides rise.

Depending on your living situation right now, living in SF may lower your spending power on the same salary.

Also if you really hate your job and don't see any potentials from it, you should look for something else and not stagnate. Bad move, career wise.

well what's the difference in cost of living, does it matter to you, and do you want to try new things?

This is my worry. Career wise this is a dead end I only took until I found something better. Now it's like, same dead end but Cali would be dope af. But same dead end. Ugh.

Nah I think you should be aiming for a higher salary if you wanna move to SF while maintaining your current standard of living.

If you don't care about that then go for it, but I wouldn't. I like SF more than NYC but I think it'd be harder to live comfortably there. Even my rich relatives who have lived there for years are starting to get priced out.

Well on the other hand, SF could be a gateway to better opportunities...especially if you want to get involved in tech.

I've never been to NYC and lived my entire life pretty much in the Bay. San Francisco is dope, but it's hella expensive. Check rent prices in the area the job is located because unless you're getting paid mad money, you'll likely have to commute. One to two hour commutes aren't uncommon in the Bay.
#17
Go over there than look for a better job while doing the current one.

Aren't people from SF supposed to be unbearable though or is that just a TV stereoype?

Cost-benefit analysis of cost of living and state taxes. Both are maxed levels of libtardation, so it's probably mostly just a factor of rent. Also, considering the exit opportunities nearby for when you inevitably leave the position.

I'd say yeah because that sounds like it'd be fun, and you can surf and snowboard and stuff and not have to deal with "ayyyy can't ya see I'm walking 'ere? Get outta the way ya scamp" yanks

my budget's at most like 1200. I've browsed around fb and there's house shares in that range but I don't know where tf they are neighborhood wise. Job's in the financial district tho.

Rent is higher, almost everything else is cheaper, weed is easier to legally acquire.

Better climate.

Similar craptastic governmental/political climate.

I wouldn't live either place.

Yeah, $1200 in SF could probably get you a private room, but you may have to look around for a decent location. Good thing about working in the financial district is you'd be within walking distance of two BART stops, so you could live in the East Bay and commute in pretty cheap. Downside is you're not living in the city anymore and that's where all the fun stuff is. Upside to living in east bay is the weather's better and rent's cheaper.

This is a nightmare.


There are apartments here that are just as expensive, or even more so and still smaller, but those are in super lush locations like islands or the downtown area (which can be like $500 per day). Is this just like your average locale?

I know you weren't serious, but that only works if you don't have attachable income...

you're young, you don't have a spouse or kids afaik

if you have a position there for you, you should totally do it - you may not have the same freedom later so now is the time to take calculated risks and explore your opportunities. plus you can network with more people while you're out there.

Nah I mean those are the expensive ones, but most of those were for like two bedrooms. I've seen much more expensive

I'm glad you guys think about me when I'm gone. I like California and I would rather work in SF than NY. Plus the SF guitar center is pretty rad. And Tommy's joynt down the street is delicious asf.
#36
Nah. If it's the same job, you'll be equally as miserable but living on the other side of the country which comes with its own challenges. Daisy dukes; bikinis on top tho.

Yeah I'm not taking it. It's a move but it's not an upward move. Lateral at best. Bad news for Cali is I've got it in my head that I wanna go there now ?? ?
