We are a 40 something professional couple (Latino) who have been married for 24 yrs. We are California natives looking for a new start in Texas. We are planning to move as a soon as possible, and doing our due diligence, we want to know what are the job opportunities for an financial auditor with 10+ years experience {including big 4 experience(D&T)} in San Antonio? Extensive experience in city government.

What is the average salary? What companies are currently hiring?

We have 2 children, son 22, and daughter 8. It is very important that we live in a safe family oriented community with a great school district. Any and all feed back is greatly appreciated.

If I were you, I would not move to San Antonio. We made the move from North County San Diego and have gladly moved back. If you would like some commentary regarding the SA area, send me a DM. I'd be happy to share. Good luck.

You forgot to ask them if they are fluent in Spanish

Either Dallas or Houston would be your best fit for professionals like yourself. Both of those cities have more of a corporate presence than SA. Coming from LA, you will fit right in Dallas or Houston.

I believe the financial sector is a Top 3 or 4 employer in SA. With regional offices from Wells Fargo and Chase along corporate giant USAA HQ in NW SA.

Btw, if you research all the post from firstclassflyer....there all negative about SA. Yet he continues to visit/post in our forum.

Don't forget that this is one person's opinion. I work with many people who have made the move from California to San Antonio and are very happy.

Kind of hard not to anymore. Almost like California is draining directly into San Antonio with all of the transplants.

Honestly, Texas does not need Californians to move here and bring their 'liberal' way of running things. Why is California in the toilet right now? It's been governed by liberals (both governors and the state legislature) by the Democrats for as long as I can remember (and Arnold is NOT a true conservative, so I'm not even buying that). I read a story the other day about Californians moving to Washington and bringing all their ways and ideas up there and now people in Spokane are not allowed to use DISH SOAP because it has too many phosphates. And now there is a big underground smuggling market for Cascade. CASCADE!!! I surely don't want that to happen to Texas. And this is coming from someone that grew up in Southern California (to my dismay).

If you want to see what happens when Californians mass migrate to another state - go check out Utah. By Jove!
