    Zurich (and most of Europe) is an awful place to live, I would take 100k in Asia any day unless you meant India or Pakistan or something.

      The best countries are actually the ones with lower "QOL", "equality", etc, such as USA, Canada, Japan, UK, Spain, etc. because those fake metrics don't reflect how it's like to actually be there and just let them ignore their issues and feel smug about themselves.

      I'd say US is the best balancing all factors tbh. This coming from a non-American non-White LGBT[0-9A-Z]+ person btw

      Who feels smug about themselves? You can’t generalize from Zurich people to all Europeans.

    Yeah, there is a hiring freeze in any European office now.

    I’ve applied for L3 as well, but my application is on hold due to low headcount.

    The recruiter asked to wait till the end of the year 😑

    Those openings aren't a reliable indicator of HC availability. Yes it's a big office and plenty of teams hiring, and not just SREs or mobile devs.

    If you must, apply through a suitable generic opening in London and tell recruiter that you actually prefer Zurich, it should not be a problem

    @Range, What’s your situation? Did you pass HC already? And which office are you applying for?

    • Can you please elaborate what do you mean by “passing HC”
      Is it when HR says your onsite performance is fine to process further or something else?

    OP you interviewed in China? Are you only open to Zurich?

      In this case maybe you should start interview first, one of my friend passed HC 4 months ago in China and still can’t get team matched.
