Current salary for DirectorLevel positions in Zurich?

Hello All

It's been a few years since I last lived in Switzerland.

Back then, for a director level position in a corporation, base salary was around 150k-180K CHF + short and long term bonuses.

Is this still valid these days? Has it increased? Decreased?

Thanks!

Re: Current salary for DirectorLevel positions in Zurich?

As above, more information is needed.

In addition to what industry:

Profit generator or cost center?
How many direct reports?
How much do you expect to personally influence profitability, are you a 'key risk taker'?
Will you be working on a critical project?
How healthy is the company?

Depending on how long you have been gone, you might be in for a surprise. Some industries - banking, especially IT and back office, as well as non-niche IT in other domains come to mind - have seen a decrease in compensation, either in salaries or bonuses or both. Some have seen top exec pay remain relatively stable while lowering bonuses at lower levels, including mid level management. Some have seen entry level salaries reduced, thus effecting on-going progression.

Or not.

More information will help us give you more sensible answers.

Thanks!

Answering some of your questions to see what kind of package this potential Director position would generate.

Profit generator or cost center?

cost center (Technology & digital)


How many direct reports?

Around 15-20

How much do you expect to personally influence profitability, are you a 'key risk taker'?

Not sure how to answer this

Will you be working on a critical project?

Not project related but rather, line manager.

How healthy is the company?

Healthy, corporate Pharma.

I'm afraid I don't know anything about pharma, but hopefully those who do will be along soon.

To make it easier to catch their attention, perhaps you might PM a mod and ask to add pharma to your title.

Good luck with the negotiations and decision...
