Quick update - just found & got 1 room (OK size) in heart of Eaux-Vives, all included 700 CHF. Very quiet, close to work, have few embassies in same building entrance, so I would say pretty safe too.
It was first and only add I responded to. Dack, either you lived super-close to your work place, or you just took a bad deal back then. There are many of those, but for some strange reason they reappear and reappear since nobody wants them so badly.
Just make sure the apartment actually really exists before you send them any money!

No western union, don't worry, but thanx for caring! Almost fell for this trick when I came to CH 2.5 years ago in Zurich.
Yes it exists, I was there & met everybody, as I wrote is OK for me and today I am paying deposit & signing contract.

Re: What's a good salary in Geneva (2013 Update)

Hello,

I'm new on this forum.

I'll give a short intro.

I'm IT Professional currently located in Croatia. I'm Croatian and been here my whole life.
I got an opportunity to move and work on a project with 12 month contract.

Salary is 110400 gross annual. I came across some wedge calculators on net and find out that this is net after tax around 6200.

Please if you can share some of your experiences with living in Geneva with this or similar salary.

Is it possible to have a decent life and to save some money for later ?

Many thanks for all info

regards

Dario

Re: What's a good salary in Geneva (2013 Update)

The gross monthly median wage in the Region Lemanique is CHF 6'052. You should be able to live comfortably on CHF 110'400 per year, but probably won't be driving a Ferrari:

Well, I'm also a IT Professional (Junior; 2 years experience) and I live well on a 58k salary. I know it's a rip off, but to gain all necessary experience I'm fine with it.

An IT Professional should know better how to use the search function.

Ok,

I see your location is Zug, but is it the same ? I mean the cost of living ?

I know it depends much on persons habits but found somewhere on net info that Geneva is expensive city to live.

I guess you had a Cockney English teacher at school, or watched a lot of re-runs of Minder.
