Maybe if you work in healthcare. Otherwise, there is no industry there. The economy revolves around UF and Shands. It is a service based and healthcare economy. Gainesville offers very little else.

I dont know who keeps making these stupid surveys. Anyone who has actually been to the town realizes it has absolutely nothing for you unless you are 18-24 or work for the university.

Jobs are few, wages are artificially low because of all the kids wanting jobs which cant find them, taxes are unrealistically high, etc, etc

Innovation Square is getting national attention and various tech firms have recently moved. One a couple years ago from silicon valley.

This is the most recent company.

LoL, an indian company with 99% of it's employees living in squalor in India.

They are going to "hire" a bunch of free or minimum wage college students, then dump them and hire more college students.

Companies like this have been exposed time after time, what a sham

What a joke. Gainesville is, and continues to be, a college-town. If you're over the age of 26, you're not going to really consider this a good "young professional" city

Those other cities at least seem a little bigger

If anything, there is a particular taboo associated with UF graduates that remain in Gainesville past graduation. The opportunities are incredibly limited. The best prospects are certainly elsewhere.

Prove me wrong. My cursory review of this company leads me to this conclusion.

Any secret they would locate a programmers sweat shop in a college town? LoL, completely obvious to me.
