I'm interested in a programmer position in Hedge Fund or Investment bank. So I contacted a couple of recruiters. One of them told me with current job market, the companies usually don't support interview trip and moving. I live in Seattle area but most jobs are in New York or Chicago. Does anybody know about this? And it Chicago, the pay for a programmer is about 130K a year + bonus and bonus range is from 10% to 100%(avg is 25%). And pay in New York is almost same. This is reasonable numbers?
