You still prefer to build discrete ?

I can confirm Jos' salary range, and I am an analog IC design engineer working in ZH

Re: Electronics Engineer market rate in Zurich

Well, it's true that there are some options and I've been looking into them but I agree with Adamastor, it doesn't feel as much as in other places (like Munich or Flanders).
Thanks a lot for giving me an idea about the salary. That's the first confirmation I got from people in the field, very useful! I was expecting for more though, given the high living costs. Do you consider this to be with bonus or other benefits or it's not something common over there?
ps: I don't think Apple is doing analog IC design in Zurich (but maybe I'm wrong).

Re: Electronics Engineer market rate in Zurich

Bonusses etc are not common, I encountered one company that had bonusses but they had an equivalent reduced base salary. AFAIK apple is not doing analog design in ZH, closest I know of is Munich. If you can find contracting work, that pays the best (125 to 150 chf an hour).

Re: Electronics Engineer market rate in Zurich

Loads of service engineer jobs that I do now even though I studied electronics in college.

120k-140k should be achievable.

May I assume you are a single guy ? As a single guy in Flanders (ie Belgium) your taxrate is the second highest in the world.....
Here you will have a net worth in 7 figures @ 50, just by working normally and having your spending under control. Try that in Flanders ( where i also came from...)

No, I'm married and wife doesn't work so taxes are much lower for that case. In addition, in Flanders it's true that taxes are very high but it's also very common to get a lot of 'tax-free' benefits. So after all if you take all that into account, it's as if you would be paying much less taxes. I end up paying something around 30%, not 50% as people thing.

But I agree with you that taxes in CH are much lower and salaries higher. At the end of the day a lot more is left. Just that the difference is not as huge as people think.

I moved to Switzerland from Belgium, whatever your salary is there add 30-40% to the gross thatís what you should get ballpark.
