Additionally if you *LOOK* at your employment contract you will find that *ALL* the work you do while *EMPLOYED* by your employer is *OWNED* by your employer *INCLUDING* the work you do at while *NOT AT WORK* if the work you are doing is *RELATED IN ANY WAY* to the business your employer is in or *MAY BE CONSIDERING TO ENGAGE IN*.

Are contracts like that really common? I've only encountered one NCA that was anywhere near that level of repulsiveness, and I just refused to sign it.

As other posters have commented, there's a wide range between "small town" and "major city." Many cities with populations around or below 1 million have vibrant communities and relatively low costs of living. In one of Ohio's larger cities, I'm able to own a cape cod in a nice neighborhood on an income below $100k.

Not gonna knock New York and LA here. Just saying, midsized cities can have their benefits, too.

I suspect that Facebook's reputation for being a brogrammer culture is an exaggeration perpetuated by the movie. If there was even a time when their work environment resembled anything in The Social Network, the company has matured since then. This article about their release process paints a different picture.
