Re: Salary Expectation, Senior Scientist

Well.... speaking for myself. I've bought an apartment in my home country, I've made a few investments and I've got dividend stocks producing regular passive income. I don't see myself living in Switzerland forever and one of the reasons I moved here and stayed here was indeed the high(er) disposable income at the end of the month.

I'm not advocating living like a pauper, but it is possible to enjoy Switzerland and still have a high rate of savings. Even below EF's 120k CHF threshold

Just saying I understand the OP's questions... and yes, would second the recommendations that s/he does some research on his/her own either by using the search function here or using glassdoor or other salary comparison websites. And wish him/her luck in whatever decision s/he ends up making.

What do people do with all this saved money ?

The only person i know who took it all with him was a guy who had a platinum coffin made, buried at sea in some very deep trench and then his will was opened informing his rather nasty family that the money was at the bottom of the ocean........somewhere !
