Re: Salary in Swiss Francs or Dollars?

I had a similar issue to deal with. I went for enough being paid in Swiss (directly into a Swiss bank) to cover my usual costs here. The rest is in Aussie pesos and stays over there.
But given the strengthening of the Aussie dollar against the Swiss Franc you must have been kicking yourself. I converted a load of CHF into AUD a couple of years back and went laughing all the way to the bank, 20%+ gain on the exchange rate not to mention getting 5+% compared to above 0% on CHF :-) Choosing the currency for your salary can always be a bit of gamble
