Seattle vs Bay Area

VMware 160k Bay Area vs Amazon 160k Seattle

I know it’s a no brainer but is the bump worth it given bad weather and lesser happening places

Bay Area has more meetups, more conferences, greater networking opportunities

Thoughts?

      Yeah weather is exaggerated anyways. It's gorgeous outside right now (I know it's like the best season for Seattle rn, but even during rainy season it's not that bad)

      I don’t think it’s exaggerated at all. I lived there for >>10 yrs and it was so depressing. I’m so much happier now and so much more optimistic. Seattle weather drags you down like nothing else.

      Avoid Seattle as it’s crap weather, Amazon and Microsoft are slave driving employees, Seattle houses are no longer cheap compared to Bay Area. The Seattle Freeze is true.

    Your money goes further in Seattle, just make sure to take your Vitamin D supplements.

    If less than 25 yrs old, go Bay. If married or thinking about starting a family, then Seattle

    At the end of the day it’s just LC and system design. What’s the use of meetups and conferences?

    You're at early stage of your career. Don't think too much about money. Your TC is low so no much state taxes anyway. Bay area will give you more opportunities to grow faster. Then move to Seattle at your mid age

    Would move to the bay for a pay cut. Especially if you are single.
