Hi Guys,

Thanks

Re: Analyst salary

I guess it depends if you are a junior analyst or not, if you are one with huge experience as an analyst in the financial industry and worked for some big companies in the past, your salary will be at the top end, unlike a junior with no experience.

Re: Analyst salary

The company I work for hire analysts with a Masters degree for 95,000 CHF p/a

That's with little to no work-experience barring perhaps Summer internships etc.

Cheers.

Seems really quite excessive and doesn't sound like an average salary to me, at all.

In a chemical industry and for a man.
Analyst salaries also depend on the size of the company. So if it is Novartis or Roche, this will be a different level as with a much smaller company.

Have your tried glassdoor or kununu?

And ps: would hate to hear that you get more as a male (even if this happens often....)

Re: Analyst salary

In my past job I hired analysts with masters degree and fresh graduates got about 70'000 to 75'000 p.a. This is Zurich and financial industry.
Senior analysts get quickly 130'000 to 140'000 p.a. but that seem to be some kind of plateau that is often cumbersome to overcome.

The salaries in Zurich area are higher than in for example in Bern. Deduct 10í000 or even a bit more to get the Bern salaries.


There is an interesting salary book Lohnbuch Schweiz 2017 published regularly and it lists salaries by area and industry at all levels.

I donít want to argue here with anyone but am just sharing my observations from the past 15 years and also after seeing in my current job the tax declarations of my clients who often are in analyst positions with masters degreeÖ

Re: Analyst salary

My apologies, it's a misunderstanding! My goal is equality however if you search in Switzerland sadly it's the case and I don't like it as well. it is disappointing as HR considers that!

Re: Analyst salary

In financial industry I, thank God, never observed salary differences been caused because of sex. Qualities and performance yes and often a female analyst was a better performer than a male analyst but not always. Eventually men are better is selling and can sell their qualities and so gain salary increase faster..

Well at least this sounds much more realistic and much closer to the average across industries.

Rachel please explain what in my writing is shameful? That I have seen women working hard and getting paid accordingly well? That sometimes men did not perform as well as well and accorginly were not paid as well as the women? Is is not good that compensation correlates with the performance?

I'm comfused.

Re: Analyst salary

I have been a high performer myself and been compensated accordingly well. Better than the poorer performer men. Where is the Problem?

Re: Analyst salary

Dears, as I said it is not my intention for inequality, but this is what I found and heard from several people (sadly). Please check the numbers in Federal website:
https://www.gate.bfs.admin.ch/salari...ex.html#/start

You can check it for yourself.

However my question was intended to ask how much would be the range

Cute. Maybe on paper it does. In reality, this is not really the case.

That's absolutely not what you said.

What you said was: "Women often perform better, but men earn more because they sell themselves better".

This is nothing but reinforcing stereotypes and bias.

Though to be fair, OP started it by emphasizing the fact he's a man... Not a smart move as he can see now

Ok, let me try to spesify my above text because Iím obviously terribly misunderstood.

I have not observed sex based salary differences during my career in financial industry (in Switzerland).

In the working places where I have worked/lead teams women have been very hard working and top performers.
Again: I have NOT observed sex based salary differences => the high performer women (including myself!) have earned more than the lower performing men.

Perhaps English is not your first language and so your statement reads that women, as good as or better than men, have no idea of how to get the higher salary that men do...this is wrong and incorrect, a woman usually has to laud her work oriented results and show herself off twice as much as a man simply to get a pay rise, and then often it will be less than what the man has received.


EDIT: ok so I have read your personal experience and I say bravo to you for it, well done. However this does not change the fact that in general this is still not the case across the board.
