Ok, I know this is an opinion-based question, but thats the point. Just looking to see what people think for shits and gigs.
I'm planning on going into Big 4 accounting, so I can basically relocate wherever theres an office. I'm currently in Orlando, FL. Dont really plan on staying here. I'm from south Florida. So my current cities I'm thinking about are:
South Florida area, maybe Ft. Lauderdale
Atlanta, or somewhere near it in GA
Boston, or somewhere near it in MA
NYC, probably Brooklyn
Chicago, or somewhere near it in IL
What do you guys think of those places? Anyone who's lived in any of those places after college, feel free to share what you liked or didn't like about them. Factor in COL, weather, career prospects, social life, etc.
I'll start with what I'm thinking about each one: the weather here in Florida SUCKS. I can see how its nice from a tourist perspective, but sweating walking from your apartment to your car gets old real fast. However, comparatively the COL is low and I have all my family here.
Georgia seems nice because of the temperature and low costs, but I have no idea how the city is there. NYC is obviously great, but it gets very hot in summer, cold in winter. Georgia is more moderate. And the COL is obviously ridiculous, especially for a Big 4 auditor right outta school. Boston and Chicago seem to be a nice in between with the costs and the city living, but the weather in the winter is a little harsh in Chicago.
Opinions, on what you think as a Big 4 auditor fresh outta school and/or for yourself as to where you wanna live after college.
