Where to live near Facebook’s office

I’ll be joining Facebook. I hate traffic so I plan to rent a 1 bedroom near the office and take advantage of the $15k bonus for living within 10 miles of the office.

What are the differences between the areas around the office. What should one look for in a place?

My base is $125k. RSUs are $55k. How much would you spend on rent if you were me?

Also why is shared laundry even a thing in the US?

    Redwood City, if you can find a place within the 10-mile radius.

    Get ready to be amazed at how much rent will cost you! Anywhere close to Facebook, Google or Apple is either expensive or a shithole. Decide what’s more important to you - money or a nice place to live. Most choose money and try not to spend much time at home 😂

    Look at their shuttle routes and go north. Redwood City, Redwoof Shores, San Carlos.

    Not East Palo Alto. Mountain View is nice. Palo Alto May be pretty expensive for a 1 bed.
    Wouldn’t spend more than $3k

    What’s your role?

      Google Eng

      Ineligible for the 15k bonus. No clue.

    Fremont for more reasonable rent, it also qualifies for the 10 mile bonus.
