There is a divide here. If your employees are young singles, yes SF is the place to locate - SF is fun!!!

If your employees are marrieds with young children, they want Silicon Valley because Palo Alto and Cupertino schools are the best.

Maybe what is happening is the reason Caltrains is so crowded. Employees live here in the Valley so their kids can benefit from the good schools but they must now work in SF because that's where the vacancy rate for commercial leasing is available.
