Not working in SFO/SEA/NYC: Is this career suicide?
So obviously I did not get a FAANG level job offer which is why I'm not moving into SFO/SEA/NYC.
My job offer is in a suburban city (population 100k-1mil) in the Midwest/Southwest. TC $190k for Senior ML Scientist position for Fortune 500 company, but not a tech company. Cannot reveal more details than that. I do have other offers in SFO/SEA/NYC, but TC is not even close to $190k.
I want to get into FAANG level companies eventually, and will go out on market in 6-12mths. Is this move career suicide?
