Everybody who knows me knows one thing about me. I never talk about my salary. Mom, who is a clever woman, taught me that no good can come out of revealing your salary. If you make more, then people envy you. If you make less, then people pity you. You do not any of the two. So I never talk about my salary. But I will happily talk about the salaries of others. Of the anonymous, of the averages and of the ranges. I am doing it for you.

I found a very cool site that gathers hundreds of thousands of data points and reports back publicly. Although below I only have a sample, on their site you can find a lot more professions. You can even take a survey to see where you stand with your qualifications or to check what you are worth. These are salaries in Switzerland. These are basic salaries without the tips, the bonuses, the extras, the stock options, and the benefits.
