HW design with 5yoe here. Have an offer with a new team. Will be moving from SD to SJC for it.

Pros : new IP so things to learn.
Cons : Increase in comp is same as cost of living increase.
What else?

  • Living standard decrease. SJC is more ghetto and boring than SD. Also, if you are single, plan on getting little to no play in the Bay Area. SDSU has some hotties. SJSU ... 🀒 Welcome to the sausage fest.

      I don't have a PhD. It's not a lot on offer, going by current market.
