Contracting - how much?

It's been a while since I did any contracting, and have never done any here in CH. What, roughly, might someone with, say, a dozen years experience in software development expect to be paid? (Probably not banking, likely to be either Java or C++ on the technical side.)

Re: Contracting - how much?


there are not so many offers in the market right now ... and AFAIK all clients are pushing down the rates ... agencies also profit from this movements enlarging margins and blaming the end client for the lower rates ... it is really bad almost cannibal ... and the worst is there is no so many people around that you can ask and get help from.

coming back to OP, a Java Engineer will be offered right now e.g. 760.-Sfr per day funny is to look at the Job ad because with all the experience they ask for it really beefs up for a PhD in Java but they want the best bang for the buck i.e. they don't look for Senior Java XXX anymore but only non Senior and then pay less.

But then the rates are also tricky ... see my other post:
