The professional working landscape in Puerto Rico has changed a lot over the last decade, but especially after Hurricane Maria.
After the hurricane, many companies went out of business or were forced to downsize to reduce costs. Some even made salary and benefits cuts for their employees. As a result, thousands of talented and educated professionals have left the island for the mainland United States in search of better work opportunities and quality of life. This is a big problem for Puerto Rico; the worst thing that can happen to a country is losing its intellectual capital.
