Q: What is it like working in Dayton?

Research Scientist in Dayton:
"Low cost of living, Low pay scale, Not cultural."
Pros: There are a lot of outdoors activities such as bicycling, kayaking, hiking available in the surrounding areas. The risk/pay has been good enough to keep me to stay.
Cons: It's s dying city that attracts people who are attracted to the low cost of living. But, the salaries are also low. In the end, you put aside less money each year and can get stuck here. Almost no cultural development. The mid-west is very conservative and people tend to like routines, rather than creative expression or innovation. Dayton is no exception to this. Housing is either fairly priced or overpriced, so the investment value of buying a home is not there. Everybody over 25 is married or not interested in it.
