    Raleigh is a wonderful city to live in. I would be happy to see more tier 1 companies move there.

      Masters. They’re all just at NC State for he Visa.

      Also the Big4 that recruits the most is Amazon. That should tell you something about the quality of the school.

      Also that, yes. As an incoming Amazon SDE fuck you though. It’s hard enough hearing it from myself.

      It won't be a wonderful city if Amazon moves in.

    Why is it exciting? Why do people care? Not trying to be snarky, I just don't get it.

      Investment property chasing a single company only makes sense only if you are a developer.

      Does it make sense if we move there too to work there

    This is the 943rd article proclaiming to "know" where HQ2 is going. Apparently it's definitely going to Raleigh, Boston, DC, Alexandria, Atlanta, and Newark. It'll be official when it's announced, settle down

    Lots of places have said that "THIS city is definitely going to be the winner for HQ2!"

    The problem is that Amazon hasn't announced it yet, and they're judging it on metrics that we aren't sure apply. The only one that categorically makes sense is nearby schools with good CS programs.

    I'm not convinced that Amazon actually cares about the cost of housing. I'm most inclined to think that it's going to be DC or New York, as Bezos already owns homes there, so we know that he likes spending time in those places.

    At the end of the day, we won't know what they decide until they decide it.

    This was obvious. Why would it be on the same coast?

    DC is awesome. Will transfer to DC if it's DC.

      Yes it’s miserable. Also very cold during the winters.

      Not as Cold as DC. No way is it very cold but then again I am talking from a New England point of view. It snows hardly twice a year and when it does the whole city shuts down.

    Ex-Banker said it will be LA, so it will be LA. Chill.
