Is it Friday yet?
Tomorrow is Friday this week, as Friday is a holiday.

Re: A generic "will my salary be good enough" post

Why is Friday a holiday this week? Did I miss a memo?


Or is this one of those Cantonal things?

Immaculate Conception.

Probably just the Catholic cantons.

Yeah, one of those. Holiday here in Fribourg too, but not in Vaud where hubby works so he's not getting a day off.

Shoot, just realised Aldi in Murten may not be open Friday night for shopping. Better check the website.

Ouch, living in Zurich, I don't get a holiday on my name day. I'm thinking about a move to Ticino.

Sachsilüüte is irregular.

So you are maybe called either Felix or Regula?

September 11th is their name day and the day of the Knabenschiessen. Which seems odd, because they were beheaded, no firearms involved... and only a half day off, too! Only the heads...if they would have been quartered, I guess there would be just three hours off.

Zurich takes its Saints literally.

Why would that be insulting? Salaries in Switzerland in most high-tech sectors are far lower than in the US. 135K is a pretty darn good income in CH - that's about how much doctors and lawyers (that aren't self-employed) make.
Not really, check this:

I would never change USA to Switzerland, especially if you earn 140k in US and you are going to receive 135k here. Yes, it seems to be almost equal change, but ... Switzerland is very expensive country, you spend money everywhere - obligatory insurances for health, civil responsibilities, quite expensive apartments, etc.

So at the end, I assume you will have less money here after paying for all those hidden small things. Switzerland is not that technical country. Yes, you have found a technical company which pays you 140k now. A key word is "now". Have you checked market, does your speciality popular here? Will you be able to find a job here after some time with the same salary?

Next, it will take some time to adapt to mentality and learn the language and habits of local people. Things are different in this country, and I have a few friends from US having troubles to adjust here. Are you sure its a good idea to change your motherland into unknown but nice country?

I actually faced the second problem, I am doing DDK development, and there are not many companies in my region (canton de vaud) which are doing that kind of buisness.








hi there!
Well said regarding adjusting here. You have forgotten to mention the primitivity and foreign hate for any expatriate taking away their jobs which they aren't even qualified for!
