I am talking from experience here. They will pay you less than what they are offering now... much less (not counting taxes and whatnot). And since you're there already you will have no other choice to sign the contract and Berlin will have screwed you once again. IF it is really good money and you cannot make the same figure elsewhere, then make sure to sign the contract BEFORE you move to the city, in that way they won't be able to "change their minds". I've been played dirty by German and non-German companies in Berlin so I would suggest you to be always suspicious of their offers.

I know I am leaving soon. I posted the same before I don't even have a solid plan and only some money that may last for 6 months. But I'm sure as hell I won't stay here. I used to say that poop will hit the fan soon but now I think there is no way to stop it.

German citizens who pay almost half of their pay check to support these "refugees" and other muslim families with 5-10 children cannot be considered greedy. Crazy right wingers are over reacting as always but it is not a reason to call them greedy.

I know how this seemingly unrelated news to Berlin keep getting closer and closer to Germany; first Greece, Austria, then Poland. Until one day news will be that a far right party will have won the elections and new and radical policies will be underway. These European far-right parties make look Trump tame and not xenophobic. (I dislike Trump a lot by the way)

Just got a cappucciono (Barini in Rixdorf), told the woman that it was too cold and then she laid into me saying "you should say something right away" but that's what i did and she started to argue and bully me. They will never get my custom again.

Oh god, I just went back into the city by tube after many years avoidingit. How can people bear it? It's a great system, but it stinks and every carriage seems to have at least one odourous oddball, and every journey practically guarantees a visit from a passing "musician". I wish the stations had ticket barriers

Is it just me or youth unemployment is like super high in Berlin. I lived in France for a while and there it was high as well like 25% of all youth population but in Berlin that number feels much higher. I mean that is something you cannot blame on immigrants, it looks like the unemployment is part of the German society. I would like to hear your input people.

I used to have the theory that Berlin is just Germany's social bin, where all the dreamers, punks and alternatives from villages and towns can move to to do their thing without bothering the more productive members of society, and that's why the rest of Germany is happy to continue to pay for it. If you live in a wg here, and don't have much desire for buying stuff, you don't need to work more than a few evenings a week in a bar, leaving plenty of time to pursue your art or social 'purpose'

Berlin's unemployment rate is about 9%. But about 20% on social welfare of some sort.

Considering that 20% of Berlin's population is on welfare plus 9% that are officially unemployed we get a whooping 30% of unproductive people (of the total population not only youth). That's almost one in three without counting underemployed people. That is staggering, if you ask me, that explains a lot of what is wrong with the city.

This week I've gotten several facebook invitations from "friends" to join an anti-immigrant, anti-foreign political movement (like pegida 2.0). Why do germans invite me to "like" this, don't they realize that these kind of invitations are against people like ME. By the way, this was not meant as a joke, they were a real invitations. That's like asking your foreign friends "Hey, join golden dawn, they are cool guys and they are xenophobic as hell." Seriously Germans WTF.

And once they figure out you in no way subscribe to their broken up views you will be severed from their social circle/work circle and nasty poop will be said behind your back.I experienced this first hand.If you are not with "The group" they come after you.Its like any form of dissent sends them bat poop crazy.Watch your back!

Yes I agree with the comment above. I have no option but to leave that social circle entirely because according to their views if I don't join this party I cannot be part of their group. Nothing of great value was lost but is still annoying to be put in this position of: "it's our way or the highway". At least I am able to create my own opinion and not fall for group thinking like most Berliners do.

To me even as a migrant, pegida makes sense.The Islamisation of Europe is a real future threat to european culture. It is not about race. It is about a religion that is not consistent with European values of freedom.

Falling in love with Berlin is like falling in love with your kidnapper thanks to the Stockholm syndrome. Victimized people feel affiliation with the one who perpetrated the crime. I didn't understand the city until I realized that Berliners like their captor, the one who mistreats them. Because that much mistreatment has to be worth it because the city is great, RIGHT? No wonder why Berliners are so weird in the eyes of almost everyone else in the planet. They're the middle point between PTSD, schizophrenia and paranoia.

I agree with everything you say, but as a therapist I'll have to make clear that they don't fall into any of those three categories, even if the metaphor feels fitting. Besides that, it's not fair for the genuinely mentally ill. I have met brighter people among them than Berliners. But really, one shouldn't joke about the mentally ill. It just intensifies the stigma towards them we already have in our society.

Seriously, what is wrong with Germany. There are places that genuinely look worse than so called third world countries. I never imagined that western Europe would look like scenes from Soviet movies. Forget about the Brandenburg Gate, just walk just a few miles and you will find places that really look like a ghetto.
