Work environments in New York v San Francisco. Please help me separate fact from fiction or point out things I might have missed.

Question: Are workplaces, particularly digital design–type places (agencies or the like), in the Bay Area actually less douche-y and more pleasant than in New York? Is there better work-life balance? Is there something else awesome you want to tell me about
Background: I'm beginning to consider moving from New York to San Francisco. I grew up in Southern California, and though I have no interest in going back to LA, going back to California (and being only an hour flight away from my family) might be kinda nice. I do interaction design work, so if anything the possibilities might be better for me out there. Plus my company has an office out there, so I might not need to even find another position. I realized I had some assumptions about what West Coast workplaces were like, so I was hoping you could set me straight.
