    160 in Florida is a lot more than 165 in the bay. No state income tax and lower cost of living. I’d take it. Also Uber sucks.

      Hmm, they can always move back to shitty SV no? Or are you trying to say they would have a hard time doing it if they get used to the luxuries like a big house etc?

    Don't relocate your family. If you're single, sure.

    And I'm surprised to learn that ML is still giving out such big stock packages...

    Depends on which team you are on. Make sure you know kind of work experience you want to get out of it. There is not much else in Florida. Work schedule is intense. So, if you are not a high energy individual that thrives in constantly changing requirements do not join. Shipping first of anything is painful and you will feel the pain.

      Thanks! Have been waiting for leapers to respond. I have worked at startups before and love the intensity and the thrill of shipping the first. Curious about your experience with work culture and employees in Florida. Are you happy with both?
