Salary for IT Systems Engineer in Zurich Banks

Hi guys,

wondering what you think of this.

Im 35 and have over 10y. experience in IT. Have worked with AD, Exchange, Switches, Storage, VMware. Lately more focussed in VMware and Storage. Holding a few certs in all those areas.

One of the bigger banks in Zurich offered me 120k CHF.

I heard that a few years ago salaries were generally a bit higher as today.

Do you think this is a good offer?


Thanks for your input!

That's a decent salary for an IT generalist of your age. Is there a bonus?

Good salary, take it. If any additional benefits exist then it's above average.

I agree with other comments. If this an offer you've received, then it's a surprisingly good deal. As you're not on a bonus scheme, assume that it's contract?

Maybe you have health insurance covered, or a fixed amount for commute or a share scheme, good pension contributions from employer etc

Even with nothing else, salary is quite good.
