Cities with the Best Cost of Living / Work Life Balance in Finance
I've come to the conclusion NYC is not for me. More power to all of you whose dream is working on the street, it's just not for me. Cost of living is too high. Hours are too long. Taxes are too high. Where in the country is the best balance between high salary and low cost of living in finance? I'm saying potential to make $300k-$500k+, work hard but not insanity. Weekends free, good 50-60 hours a week max monday - friday. I'd much rather find that then make $1 million+ and give away half of it to Uncle Sam and Cuomo/ Blasio. Areas of interest of mine include corporate finance, private wealth management, PE or mutual fund Asset Management, or boutique/MM. I like Florida, Texas, and Nevada because of the warm weather and no state income tax.
