Non-EU with EU wife - Can she work with no problems?

Hello, I am a Brazilian national with a job offer to work in VAUD. My wife is Italian and she would come with me (we currently live in the USA). I looked through many posts, but with all the recent changes, I got confused. So I would like to know if anybody has experience on the following:

Lets say I get an L permit and my wife comes with me based on "Family reunion".
1/ Can she work immediately, or she would need to find a company to sponsor her and be subject to the EU Quotas?
2/ My L permit would be based in VAUD. Can she work in other Cantons - ie. Geneve?

Thanks very much!!!!

As an EU passport holder she can work anywhere in Switzerland. She needs to register, as we all do, and have Swiss medical insurance of course.

Re: Non-EU with EU wife - Can she work with no problems?

What you also need to remember is that as, I assume, a Green Card holder you still need to file, and possible pay, US tax. Until you properly give up your card, you're considered a US resident for tax purposes. This could also make it difficult to get a Swiss bank account as you'd need to give permission for the bank to pass your account info on to the IRS by signing a W-9 form.
