If u r lazy, go n work in the UAE.
But if u r looking for a challenge, better work ur as s  off to earn more money. Go on holiday 2 to 4 times a year.
Now that's the balance.

If you want to be the top dog, you have to forgo "life" for a few years (or many years). Doesn't matter what city you are in. If you want "life", go work for McD.

My vote goes to San Francisco bay area and London..  Bay area has more space yet London has more cultures and more restaurants to choose from.

curious as ask the OP as why are intrigued about this topic.
during my younger days I thought about moving to the USA up until mid 90s
moving there as a professional is not all super hard.
now I don't think I want to move to us anymore
canuckstan maybe a bit derriere nonetheless is still bearable.

my sis is living in city of angels aka los Angeles or lala land  they do enjoy to make a bit more and lower tax rate
but life is always a double edged sword
and one can get what he she prayed for.

Wouldn't want to pay a 50% income tax 25% vat and over usd 10 for a mcdonald meal.  Yes you have more benefit in return but I would rather trust myself than the politicians to manage my money.

SF Bay Area.....Tell those who got evicted in the City because of the brutal residential rental market.

For those who are lucky enough to live in the suburbs (Mainly East Bay), they are served by the fucking transit system known as BART.

All metropolitans, in particular those offers a lot of cultural activities with a strong economy, suffers the same issue in housing.  It is all about demand and supply as there are more people moving to those cities and not enough new houses are built every year and there is only a limited land inside/around the thriving big cities.

On the the hand, declining cities such as Detroit don't have housing shortage however I don't think they are the best places for work life balance.

SF Bay Area is not there, I don't need this to tell me because i've been around the Bay Area for 24 years. Compare to other small towns i'd lived in, SF Bay Area is sometimes downright depressing.

Nice to see a ranking that put two of the cites that I lived before in the top of the ranking.  But I can tell you I (and probably most people who enjoy cultural activities and like to sample different restaurants often) would not want to stay there for a very long period.  They are peaceful, pretty, and there are full of nice people however they don't often a lot of option in terms of food, culture activities, and entertainments.

It is just same for me that I don't need a ranking to tell me how boring these cities are for working people as I have lived in there myself.
