Re: Vienna - why not?

Yes, and Slovakia is very close to Vienna :)

It seems to be quite hard to find English speaking jobs in Slovakia, even in academia.

Re: Vienna - why not?

The short answer is no.

Three years ago we traveled a bit through Switzerland with the purpose of checking it out. Excluding the "German" part, we focused on Geneva and Lausanne. We found the...

Re: Vienna - why not?

"it has some life in it" doesn't sound too cheerful.

Yesterday we had a very interesting Skype chat with a friend's niece and her parents. Although they had nothing but praises for the society and...

Re: Vienna - why not?

It makes an interesting read.

It's not the first time I hear about Austrian being not friendly. I think it would be interesting to know how this opinion is distributed among expats from different...

Re: Vienna - why not?

I see
I definitely prefer the 12 month system...

Anyway this clarifies the discrepancy between the calculation done in net salary annually and monthly. I was dividing the annual by 12, not 14 :)...

Re: Vienna - why not?

Taxation is indeed very different between here and there.
In fact, 50k (gross) income seemed to me a very generous salary compared to what I am used to here in the UK, but it would appear it's...

Re: Vienna - why not?

That's more expensive than I thought.
We pay £1100 for a 1 bed apartment in Raynes Park, which is a very nice area just outside Wimbledon. It's smaller than yours, but the ratio salary:rent looks...

Re: Vienna - why not?

I see...

So the annual salary is divided in 14 months instead of 12?
Meaning, monthly salary = annual salary/14?

Re: Vienna - why not?

Re: Vienna - why not?

Yes, and the reason I posed such questions is because I am interested in hearing (well, reading) other's opinion.

Of course the answers are highly personal, but I like this sharing of opinion....

Re: Vienna - why not?

Yes, I read that.

Trusting that score, Calgary and Vancouver would be both...

Vienna - why not?
