Living in Switzerland ruined me for America and its lousy work culture

I didn't read it that way. The way I read it moving to another country is an opportunity, not that opportunities are better than in the US. I'd have to agree with grant, if you have the chance to move to another country then take it. My time living abroad was great, but it also made me realize that for the long term I preferred being in the US, YMMV.

Yeah, I mean I'm actually asking because I have dual UK/US citizenship and I'm currently applying for jobs to go to the States but obviously the UK is also an option for us and I've been considering it as another option. But no question the job opportunities are stronger in America just through sheer volume of numbers - there's probably 20 U.S. Jobs in my field for each job in England.

Why do you consider moving to the UK a better opportunity than the USA?
Because I enjoyed living in London last time I tried it and someone is offering me crazy fistfuls of dollars to do so.
