Zurich is extremely safe. The people that live there are focused on work. But It's way too expensive. You won't get ripped off in the street but the stores will rob you. If you're going there, you really should be careful, unless you don't mind paying $16 for an extremely small container of sunblock. Things like this sour the experience. I agree with Philippe, it's very difficult to do business there.

in Switzerland there is less a problem of corruption or bribery than a problem of conflicts of interests and collusion between politics and big business, which prevents fair competition.
