I currently work for Amazon and got a new job offer in another FANG in Pittsburgh (TC ~300K) which is my dream job. My wife wants me to relocate to Dallas,TX as she doesn't like the Pittsburgh weather and the city itself. Also she wants to buy a house only in Dallas, TX as she has lived over there for few years. She is asking me to compromise on my career goal and move to any tier 2 company even if they offer me half my current salary. I'm not at all interested to work for a tier 2 company after I've worked for FANG for 4 years. I hope most people here will have the same feeling.
My question is
1. Do you suggest me this Non-Fang career(career suicide imo) move for a lower salary? What impact does that have on my resume and my furure career with FANG?
2. Which is a better City for living and has good real estate market - Dallas or Pittsburgh?
Propose Austin (still TX) and possibly keep both career and wife
If she doesn’t compromise at all, then it goes back to you,
