Non-Google tech opportunities in Zurich?
I've made a mistake of switching teams 6 months ago without thorough due diligence and regret it ever since: finding myself doing boring tasks with microscopic impact, team's disorganized with no vision, got assigned to inexperienced freshly minted manager with whom i don't really get along, SEE turned into CME on the new team, facing an imminent vesting cliff, etc.
Thinking of quitting but money's too good. Where else can a guy make 300k+ these days as a senior engineer in Zürich?
I've been reading some swiss salary surveys and the stuff is seriously friggin' disgusting! I'm getting a feeling like the market here's paying ~120-150k tops with little to no equity usually, like i'm some kind of chump - this is more than 50% dive to my google TC. Not considering move to US yet, I like it here in ZRH, but are there any other decently paying corporations here? If no why is GOOG showering people here with so much money?
