Miami has no state income tax, but it's probably the worst for my tech career and culture fit. NYC/SF/LA are super expensive. Chicago is cold and in the Midwest. Seattle rains.
I think if money wasn't of concern, NYC wins.
If dating wasn't a concern SF would win.
I'm young, single, remote software engineer and want to live it up. I'm thinking about buying a place. I also don't know anyone in any of these cities so I'll have to make friends.
- You have failed to mention what is your priority in life
Getting dates, saving to buy a house, work ur ass off and get a 300k TC ??
- Western Digital rhrR87There is no place for you. You have no much money, sound arrogant and want it all
- Amazon leblancSeattle weather is better than many cities on your list, but 110K won’t cut it here.
- New dnnjsjjlIf you live in Miami, it is a killer to your career. Live in LA or NY. Great social life. When you are young, you can afford to live anywhere. This is the time to take risks. After 10 years in Miami, your position won't change much.
