dilemma job in zurich vs moscow

Hello all,

To present myself quickly, I am a 24 years old french, currently working in Germany since 6 months for my first job. I enjoy my current situation, but i don t seem me staying long term in my current job.

In the near futur (second part of 2020), i will have the opportunity to relocate to Russia within my company. At the same time, i plan to apply for jobs in Switzerland.

I know pretty well the employement conditions i will receveid in both cases, since i am new graduate/junior, but i struggle to compare them, since it's countries and cities i know little about.

Here the employement condtions within my company in Moscow:

_ 3200-3300€ net salary per month (directly on my bank account)
_ 6 week paid leaves per year
_ good health insurance included
_ average retirement plan (upgrade with time)

Here the employement condtions i expect in Zurich:

_ 100kchf gross salary per year

_ 4 week paid leaves per year
_ swiss health and retirement system, since it will be a swiss contract.

I am wondering how these two offers compare to each other. I speak a bit of russian, i have been in russia a few months, and i find interesting to live in the country for some time. But i will need to learn russian very well for my job, invest time in it, and appart of the cultural aspect of the thing, i am asking me if it worths it for the money to take the offer in Russia, or at least the difference with the offers in Zurich is not considerable.

Also, concerning my living style, I am not a spendthrift. I want to save money to take a long trip (several months) in a few years and to invest a bit.

I waiting for your feedback and your experiences on similar choices.

thank you / Danke / merci / спасиба from Germany,
