Job offer to move west

Apr 12, 2019 9 Comments

After negotiations I got this much:
97k base
12 bonus
10 relocation

To live anywhere in the west

Where should I go?
Was thinking Phoenix, Denver and Portland.

Phoenix has scorpions and tarantulas so I’m kinda turned away by that. Denver has a google office I could network my way into. And I know nothing about Portland except that there’s a lot of rain there and I’m trying to escape it.

Can’t have everything but Denver also has a great NBA team unlike Phoenix dead ass.

    Reno. Nevada is income tax free state. Maximize your income. There's also Vegas but Reno is near Lake Tahoe!

    Denver for sure. Avoid Portland. It's a bum infested shit hole. Phoenix is good only for Winters.

      My client is in Boise and as a person of color who goes there weekly: no.

    Never been to Denver, but I like Portland! I was in Phoenix in December last year and found it to be very boring. Can't imagine how terrible it will be there during summer. Scottsdale was okay!

      Do you really have to be so cheap?

      Since I travel Monday through Thursday and company expenses food for that time period, I can essentially buy groceries on Thursday and make em last until Sunday. Can probably spend 1300-1500 a month on rent and still save almost 2000 a month
