A new and highly scientific poll published by Forbes magazine pegs Cleveland as the unhappiest city in the U.S. to work in right now.
To determine the happiest and unhappiest places to work, fulfillment-focused career site CareerBliss took a look at eight key factors that can influence an employee’s contentment, including work-life balance, an employee’s relationship with his or her boss and co-workers, general work environment, compensation, opportunities for advancement, company culture, and resources.First, a question: How many folks working in Cleveland visit CareerBliss to enter data about their work life? None of us? Okay then.
...Cleveland, Ohio, ranks as the unhappiest place to work in the country. (It may be a coincidence, but a greater number of cold-climate cities are viewed as unhappy places to work.)
Second, a disagreement: Cleveland's a damn fine place to work (and a fine place to visit, too).
Not only do we have a whole week dedicated to employee appreciation each year, but there are after-work happy hours every day of the week and terrific lunch spots, (Ohio's average income isn't too shabby either.)
