Need Your Insights-Moving to San Diego
I currently live in Northern New Jersey and got a job offer for a Pharma company in La Jolla area, San Diego. I went online to do some reaching about San Diego and the majority of the comments I've read so far are so discouraging:( I was under the impression that San Diego is the it place to have a great combination of work and life balance. Also, I had heard that it is an important hub for top global companies.
People in the various blogs complain that it is very expensive there, but I am not sure if it would be more expensive than living in North Jersey. Moreover, I read horrible stuff about the increasing crime around the city and the bad education system. Thinking in terms of comparison between two states or regions, I was very puzzled to read these comments and made me heavily question if I should take this job offer. So I wanted to get your advise or comments. Your insights would be very much appreciated!
