work permit + entry visa...applied at the same time? [non-EU]

Actually, two questions:

1. I have received a job offer locally and my company will be applying for my work permit in Zurich. I understand that only after the work permit is granted will I be able to get a work visa to enter the country. On some pages however, it seems to be implied that I have to apply for the entry visa at the same time (and in my own country) as my employer applies for the work permit in Switzerland. Is this the case? Or is it possible to submit the visa application after the permit is issued?

2. While my work permit application is being processed, is there anything that either prevents me from being in Switzerland on a normal tourist visa?

Any answers will be much appreciated, thanks!
