    Use this as ur ticket to enter Cali. Don’t stay more than 6 months and max 1 yr. move out then ASAP. SAP has shit products and most of the PMs are useless with no vision of building great products.

    No way you can live in LA with that kind of salary unless you rent in the inland empire and deal with 1 hr plus drives every day one way.

    Though with 1 yoe I don’t think you have much leverage. It’s still cheaper than relocating to SAP in Palo Alto.

    And yeah I also think it seems low especially since I come from one of the best business schools. But coming from Europe, what are really the options here? In Germany, I'd get half that.

    105k Jesus Christ I make quite a bit more than that as a junior developer. I guess it’s because you're coming from Europe where the wages are much lower
