Try searching the forum. Your question has been answered a 1,000 times. You’re not exactly showing awesome research skills for a scientist! Christ you even have a friend in Basel you can ask.

And why is everybody obsessed with coming to Switzerland to live like a hermit and save as much money as possible?!?



What do people do with all this saved money ?



The only person i know who took it all with him was a guy who had a platinum coffin made, buried at sea in some very deep trench and then his will was opened informing his rather nasty family that the money was at the bottom of the ocean........somewhere !

Re: Salary Expectation, Senior Scientist

Well.... speaking for myself. I've bought an apartment in my home country, I've made a few investments and I've got dividend stocks producing regular passive income. I don't see myself living in Switzerland forever and one of the reasons I moved here and stayed here was indeed the high(er) disposable income at the end of the month.

I'm not advocating living like a pauper, but it is possible to enjoy Switzerland and still have a high rate of savings. Even below EF's 120k CHF threshold

Just saying I understand the OP's questions... and yes, would second the recommendations that s/he does some research on his/her own either by using the search function here or using glassdoor or other salary comparison websites. And wish him/her luck in whatever decision s/he ends up making.

Invest for their old age?

Keep for children's university education?

Keep for rainy days in case they lose their jobs in their mid-50s?

Set aside for early retirement so that they don't have to work until they are 65 in jobs they hate?

I don't know why I bother answering this question though. From the way you reply to posts here you come across a bit immature and not that bright!

No way is big pharma paying 150+20%.
100-120 maybe.
Yes way. 120K + about 10% bonus is the starting salary of a junior clinical scientist with 0 years of experience. Maybe we are talking about different types of scientists?
Are you being taken advantage of at work?

Re: Salary Expectation, Senior Scientist

FWIW, I do work in the field. The salaries are pretty much based on functional classes/levels which are tied to a job title. The OP mentioned his friend in Basel with the senior scientist title and earning 150K. Real scientists don't mention bonuses!

Re: Salary Expectation, Senior Scientist

I would advise the OP to go to Comparis and check out the Cantonal and Gemeinde tax rates for Nyon and Vaud to work out his or her net salary after tax, pension and AVH, then deduct rent, healthcare cover and transport.

In my experience anywhere close to the railway stations in Nyon, Gland and Rolle is rented out pretty quickly by people commuting the Geneva, especially one and two bedrooms.

120K + 10% bonus is too low for clinical scientist.
