Look on Dice. The salaries are at market rate. Silicon Valley really doesn't pay that much more. A job that pays 120k in Silicon Valley would pay 110k in Atlanta I'm sure. But you'll basically be making the same anyway, since California state taxes are so high.

Oh yeah I totally agree, which is why I recommended it!! I was writing that line in the context of having started off with Boston and DC. I do believe Atlanta comes in behind those two in that regard. But all six of my recommendations are all above average.
