SW Engineer Salary

Dear Forum Members;

I would be glad if someone have idea about Software Engineer Salary in Zug Region(with master degree and 3 years experience in C++/Java and Oracle Consultant).

I have an offer from one of the Swiss Pharma company.

It is about 90.000 CHF. I do not know that is good money to live over there.

I am from Germany/Frankfurt and in here I can get around 60.000€.

Do you think does it it worth to go there for this money???

Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter.

Regards

Re: SW Engineer Salary

By the way I calculate the salary with Salarium:

Results lie between :110.000 and 130.000 CHF.

That is more what I would expect. 130K is a bit high
for 3 years of experience.

Re: SW Engineer Salary

Hello

90K CHF per year is enough to get by, but don't expect the high life. Switzerland is expensive, especially healthcare. Certainly your purchasing power will be lower than in Frankfurt with 60 K Euro per year.

It is up to you to decide...maybe you have other interests in life than making money that would compensate, such as skiing, hiking,etc. If this is the case then maybe relocating to Switzerland would make sense.

Also if you move over here brace yourself for a limited "welcome" from the locals.

Appreciate for the comments.

As UktoSwiss mentioned, purchasing power will be lower than in Frankfurt.

I was there for couple times as a guest. It seems so expensive

Re: SW Engineer Salary

As german I think you can rely on the informations on this link

http://www.budgetberatung.ch/Budgetberatung.2.0.html

Anyway, earning 60k in DE, I would suggest not less than 100,000 here in CH.

Grüss
