Working in Miami

Oct 27, 2018 16 Comments

I’m planning to move to Miami, but I work in Fort Lauderdale.

I was hoping for some insight, I really wanted to live in the city and know there’s a commute, but would appreciate additional perspective.

    Miami is an absolute dump. The people are awful and the streets are dirty. Stay in ft Lauderdale. Las olas Area is nice if you can swing the payments. Some of the southern broward county beaches are nice. Hollywood and Hallandale.

      I know a L5 making 110k base no equity just 50% 401k match. Thing is you gotta have a car, buy your own food at work, pay high electric bills cuz of AC running 24/7, and it rains 6 months out of the year but not Seattle rain like torrential downpours. Also if you're outdoorsy you'll hate it, even if you can stand being out in 90F with 100% humidity you will also be eaten alive by mosquitos. Your life will be AC home to AC car to AC office maybe beach once every 6 month because u will feel guilty for not going.

    • There’s a Microsoft office off 95 close to Fort Lauderdale, not really MIAMI, not close in distance

    Commute is tough in Miami. Find out that specific commute at rush hours before making a decision. You could regret it.

      Not for you I assume. Downtown to Kendall is a breeze both ways

    The commute in Miami is horrible and definitely, you have to speak Spanish to leave in Brickell area. If your office is not far, try the Coral Gables area.

    Have you considered downtown Lauderdale? Commuting on 95 is a pain. If your Espanol is good, there are options in Miami. Have a friend who lives in Brickell. He's from the Caribbean but doesn't speak the local language. He really feels excluded.

    Don’t do it. Miami is trash. Fort Lauderdale is really nice to live in
