Re: Telecom Jobs

HI Aimar,

how about introducing yourself to the forum on the Introductions section here.?

Not only would it be nice for you to do so, it will allow people to assess your situation a little bit better and answer accordingly.

The country is "Switzerland", we accept CH in short but not Swiss
Swiss are the people living in the country.

Welcome.
But they should pay your health insurance as well, no?
Did you ask this?
With your 85K normally 25-30% will be deducted for taxes and health insurance. So basically you will be left with 4500-5000 CHF per month, which is enough for a person to live in Switzerland.

the number seems entry level position (for some Engineering areas, don't know specifically for telecom)

half tax for 2 year is 300 chf.

relocation costs?
insurance benefits?

i hope someone else can help you better with it. to clarify, you won't be starving to death. I can live with that amount no problems.

Re: Telecom Jobs

Thank you for your help!

So, ive checked the taxes will be 13%, health insurance at about 400CHF.

How about social security? Ive checked in some website that is 12,5% (50% the company and 50% the employer). Is like that?

The only benefits theyve proposed are those i mentioned. Not relocation nor insurance. Which are the "regular" benefits?

regular benefits? A sport car on your choice between a Lamborghini and the fastest Ferrari, 3 months paid holidays per year.

What sort of job?
Are you a CAD designer?
An accountant?
A cleaner?
A highly-qualified network engineer with 30 years experience in the little know but highly power software language of Kava D++?
A RF propagation engineer?
A cellphone salesperson?
A tough purchaser that negotiates roaming agreements with other telcos?
A manager of a small department?
A manager of a medium department?
A manager of a large department?
A country manager?

85k varies from a very good salary, to only a fraction of what you should be getting, depending on the job position, description, your age and experience, and your language and permit status

As a very rough rule of thumb: the average salary in CH is about 65k pa.
So your offered salary is 1.3x the average
Compare to your current country of residence, assuming your job is similar.....

Your taxes and insurances are about right.
Social security is right.

Your benefits are good - most CH companies give no benefits, apart from maybe use of a mobile phone if you need one for the job, and maybe a reduced price canteen if you are lucky.

I have to pay my own half-price card :-(

Re: Telecom Jobs

Single, 2 years exp, Telecom...some benefits.

Sounds about right.
You will be fine.

Work hard, and smart, and you can soon move up to where you don't need to ask if the salary is enough.

Good Luck and Godspeed.
