.MASSHOLE.Interested to see what people say about this.
Apparently Boulder and/or Denver are attractive options from what I have heard, but it depends on the industry. Boulder does have a big startup culture so there may be VC options there.
sellingerWas reading an article earlier for an evaluation essay I'm doing over the legalization of marijuana, and some information about this was in the article.
Right now in Colorado, the economy is booming. Not sure what kind of finnce you're into, but for one, the housing market there is at an all time high. Denver would be a great spot for relocating to, as a lot of business are doing the same with the amount of tax revenue the state is generating.
If you plan on movin somewhere full time and eventually starting a family, the education system is booming as well. There is a 15% excise tax on on wholesale marijuana that is only used for school construction.
For skiing wise, Denver is roughly an hour and a half to two hours from some of the best skiing in the nation.
KravtZThe only problem is I don't want to give up on my career / progression.
KravtZThinking about it. Only problem really is NYC is the finance capital of the US. Tough to give up the networking / job potential here. But would move in a heartbeat for the right job. Looking into some investment managers out there throw out some things see what comes back.
dylholeSeems like if you can hack it in NYC you should be able to secure a job in the industry in most other places without a ton of networking. Move west and you'll probably work fewer hours, but likely still be the weekend warrior. Although, there are plenty of motivated professionals in Salt Lake City who love their dawn patrolling. And don't be surprised by the lower salaries in varying cities. I've had friends move from Manhattan to Utah and see there salaries cut in more than half, and still have more disposable income and free time to enjoy life.
KravtZI don't want a massive pay cut honestly.
skittitiAbout to graduate from school and move out to NYC to do IBD, and am already considering options out west post-analyst stint. A good buddy of mine moved from IBD in NYC to a Real Estate Gaming and Lodging focused private equity firm in Denver. The firm actually owns a ski resort, as well as golf resort in Hawaii, which is pretty fucking cool. As for me, I hope to be able to move out to SoCal or the surrounding areas and do some form of Healthcare VC/PE, which I guess would put me closer to the mountains. As far as opportunities go, I know there are is a good amount of PE/HF's out in Utah/Colorado, they just tend to be smaller shops with lower turnover at the analyst/associate level.
CaptainObvious.Janus Capital Group is also HQ'd here. Smaller company, but a great place to work.
