CHF135k per annum sounds outrageous high if you ask me... I posses BSc/MSc (+ PhD not that much rated in industry) in Power Electronics plus 8 years experience and having been working for half a year at ABB, I only get close to CHF100k which is a standard salary bracket here for engineers...
I think that in ABB if you have El Engineering degree + PhD + some management responsibility and / or seniority, 135K is a fair salary.

Don't sell yourself short.

Reality is that you will earn more from unemployment.

Again, I didn't insist that I should be paid more, I was only concerned that I would be underpaid.


Now, where did I get idea that mentioned salary is underpaid?
Based on payscale median ee entry level salary is 80k. This is very bizzare, as median ee salary (all experience levels) is almost the same, like there is a weaker correlation between experience and salary in CH. Now, 50% of ee juniors earn 80k, while 25% 61k. This means that with 72k I would earn less than 50% of juniors. In fact I would earn as much as 40% of juniors do earn, if linear distribution assumed.


entry level ee:

all groups ee:
http://www.payscale.com/research/CH/...ngineer/Salary




salarium returns even more - chf7200 median monthly, or 93600 median yearly (uni education, 0 years work experience, small sized company, canton bern). For big companies it 8000CHF. Changing the work experience parameter doesn't change much.
Salarium scale is not yet adapted the new salaries, maybe it is true for the era when CHF-EUR exchange rate used to be much favorable.
Now as a new enry to companies you earn almost 20% less compared to 6-7 years ago.

Re: Electrical Engineering salaries in CH

Hi mate
Have you looked at glass door? There are details of real salaries with major companies. International experience seems to yield a higher pay
Note that cost of accomodation is exhorbitant like Perth during the boom. Acceptable salary will also depends if your partner works or not
Might be worth discussing what type if lifestyle you are looking for to see if a realistic salary will cover it...best of luck mate
