Knowing what you know now, would you still move to this city?

Yes, definitely. I wish I could extend my stay! - Mar 27, 2017
Most definitely. - Oct 15, 2014
Yes, absolutely. We've had a nice experience here. Lots of downtime with the family, interesting sights to visit. This is not a thrilling place with lots of excitement, you have to temper your expectations. - Sep 19, 2011
Yes. Prior to Yerevan we worked in Moscow. It has its challenges, but Yerevan is a much easier place to live. - Oct 14, 2009
No. Yerevan can be a pretty city in the spring and fall and it is an easy hardship Post. That said, I didn't find the experience particularly rewarding from either a professional or personal point of view. My perception is that this is a check the box (hardship) or maximize my earnings instead of a we can (or should at least try to) make a difference sort of Post. Previous posters are correct--there were a number of contractors and those with family issues that extended; I felt like the entry-level and newer mid-level officers who were looking toward promotion were eager to move on to more rewarding opportunities. - Jul 26, 2008
Absolutely! The climate, the (safe) city, the ease with which you can get around, the availability of so many goods - the living is easy here. - Jan 9, 2008
