I once heard 120k for Associate level, but it was some time ago...



You should have gone better prepared for the interview... If you work in finance, stating "2x my salary" out of nowhere sounds amateurish, no? Still, I guess CHF170k is not far from reality, so you are a good guesser. Anyway, you definitively misunderstood her because CHF85k is a ridiculous salary for such role and experience.



Yes.
Thanks for your reply. I didn't just take the 2x number out nowhere I saw it used numerous times on this forum by experienced forum members. Given that these positions don't come up that often in Switzerland it's hard to find comparable jobs to predict the right level of salary to ask for. In any event I now know that the 2x level is probably not correct despite it being used a lot on this forum as a basic rule of thumb.
