Compensation at Los Angeles

Aug 25, 2019 23 Comments

Hi, I'm moving from Dallas, TX to LA. My current compensation at Dallas is 80k and 125k at LA. Is this a step down in terms of compensation? My role is the same.

    You will find that all these FAANG trolls will say you are under paid so don't listen to them. LA is significantly more expensive and traffic sucks but 125k should be good enough. It all kinda depends on your situation like if you have kids, wife and what not. If you are single, it tends to be a little easier to make these kinds of moves.

    Depends on where in LA. If you are in the city or near the coast then its expensive. If you live more towards San bernadino or chino it's reasonable.

    May be 140 or 150k equivalent to DFW compensation?

    If you’re single you’ll be fine, people survive here with lower salaries.
