Stuxnet54217284dOk so here's one thing for you to look at:
How much is rent?
A city much much so than NYC I'm looking at has studio apartments but they're $2k a month.
zlice3376284dhow close can you live to work. doubt you'd have a car or taxi every day.
heyheni15963284dcool! but you should calculate your living expenses before you take this job. For a small 1 room appartment in Manhattan you pay $ 2000-3500 a month.
growling4188284dYou deserve more than 85k. But it seems you need your H1B. Take whatever you can get. Full time for new grads is actually very hard to get nowadays unless you’re very very good. And when I mean good, I mean industry good. Idc if you beat all the students in your class. It’s much tougher out there. Tis why we prefer at least one internship to humble you out.
I’m in Silicon Valley at 98k that goes up with compensation to roughly around 101k. And I’m still complaining.
It’s not enough man. Especially in our cities!
trogus13976281dThe city is expensive, so that is on the low end for someone with a couple years experience, but it really depends on what you learned/produced in those 2 years. You can always negotiate for more, but best option is to have multiple offers to choose between. Everyone here really wants devs that have more than a bootcamp under their belts, so you should have some decent options if you shop around. Good luck!
