Moving from Europe to SF Bay.
Can you please tell me what is the average salary in Tech for Software Engineers or Data Scientists in SF Bay?
YoE: 1 in Tech
Ph.D. from a top school.

What is the average monthly rent for a decent one-bedroom flat in a convenient location ?

What about the holidays? Do you have paid holidays? If yes, how many days?
And What about medical insurance? Can you afford it?

Thanks

    Something like 170k tc in FAANG for 1 yoe. 2500-3500 for rent. Yes, paid holidays. Your company will pay for medical insurance.

      What about the working hours? Is that much different than in other states? Why people keep mentioning that the working hours are so long in SF Bay?

      Hours depend on the company culture. At Google most people work about 40 hours a week.
