So I'm posting in this in multiple forums, but I figured some of you might know, and it is tangentially related to legal employment.
So I was just offered a position at large corporation with HQ in Rosemont. Pay is low 6 figures, and it looks like a great gig. The hours don't seem ridiculously onerous (8-6) and the general counsel seems to really like me, to the tune of hinting an immediate management role was in my future should I accept. Everything is greenlight except...
I'm worried about the commute. I'm not from Chicago, and not particularly familiar. However, I feel like if I'm going to move to a big metro, I want to live in the city. Is that feasible if I have to work in Rosemont? Can I live in say... Wicker Park, Logan Squre or Wrigleyville and commute in under 30-40 minutes?
I'm skeptical, but thoughts?

Not fun, but doable. With no traffic that drive is a tad < 30 min. You would probably be going against traffic for the most part, so it wouldn't be terrible. I wouldn't be surprised if there were a few people in your prospective office that are doing that commute already. I would ask one of them how bad it is.
