Pay range

Hi All,

I got a job at a Pharma company in Basel. Junior project assistant. Working in supply chain specifically in Clinical trials. This is in Basel. I wanted to ask what the pay for a job like this at a large USA based pharma company would be and what I can expect/push for.

Thanks for the kind advice. I have a bachelors degree in Social Work and about eight years experience in healthcare field in multiple roles wrapping it up now in HR. Speak English, Portugese and B2 German.

I am also Portuguese. Are you already in Switzerland or abroad?

Basel is pharma city so nothing new.

If you are from Porto 100k/year would be similar to 30 000/year there.

When pushing you really need a rock solid argument why you are worth more. FWIW I doubt they would move 10%, I only managed to get 4%, but my justifications were half arsed.

Once you are 'in' then getting a payrise (apart from the yearly paltry @1%) is near impossible without a job change.
Big pharma is fair with the salaries, usually paying more than a local equivalent, and a good environment to work.
There are quite a few salary and pharma threads on the forum if you do a few searches.
Good luck!
