salary on par ???

My employer is an american company that i have worked for stateside for a number of years.....currently as a manager i am being paid 8600 net/mo. it seems realitively good at first but as i look at the websites it seems a bit low. i do have my masters and 20+ yrs experience....any input is appreciated. Is anyone able to tell me if this is average income??

Re: salary on par ???

Is there a Swiss equivalent of the League against Cruel Sports? Someone should call them before it's too late.

Oh, I will avoid common sense and logic then.

Firstly, I don't see how your gender should make a difference.
Secondly, can we at least know what it is you do ?

Re: salary on par ???

As it's your first post you weren't to know.the salary question has become a bit of an over developed subject shall we say. Many people enter a thread purely to assess their earnings and of course it is impossible to say, so please don't be upset by the remarks.too many bored people looking for a laugh to shake off the dismal humdrum existence in an unintegrated society. Keep going you ll be fine. GG
