Adults working full-time in the United States spend about a third of their waking life at work — and often much more. Because work has such a central role in our lives, job satisfaction is crucial to our well-being. And given the ability to choose, many of us would prefer to work in a place that offers satisfying work, favorable conditions, and generous compensation.
Job satisfaction is contingent on a multitude of factors — quantifiable and otherwise. In addition to the nature of the job itself, co-workers, bosses, salary, benefits, and other such factors can greatly boost or detract from job satisfaction. Many of these factors depend on the company and how it treats its employees.
