@pete Salaries on engineers vary depending on the technology, but I'd say that the mid salary for a mid level software dev is about $25K MXN a month from a local company.

Things have changed over the time. Guadalajara is not the same nowadays on 2018 than in 2008 or 1998.
Life in Guadalajara can be pleasant and wonderful or a hell depending on your income. If your income gives you the possibility to pay for a rent or mortgage on the inner ring of the city you will be able to have lots of services, schools, public transport, parks and even cyclepaths to rely on.
But this is not the same for someone who is able to pay for a house outside of the "periférico" ring. Public transport is just a shit, overcrowded, doesn't have a specific time to pass (suppsed to pass each 5 minutes), and if you try to use your own car, is pretty much the same shit. Get awake in the morning at 5:30AM to start driving for at least 1:30hrs to your work and arrive at 8:00AM.
This city is not improving at all on all the public even being called the "Mexican sillicon valley".

Really unpleasant and shitty quality of life.
