    Pros

    Interesting people, great location. The on-site benefits are also good- make sure to take advantage of them if your job permits (which it might not)

    Cons

    Rent is rising and traffic is congested. Make sure you have enough saved up before moving here. You likely will be severely overqualified for your job

    Advice to Management

    why bother?
