According to a survey by Employment Background Investigations, there’s a far better chance your cubicle neighbor is quite pleased with his or her work. Of 2,000 people polled, 53.3 percent said they “love” their job. A mere 9.8 percent copped to loathing their current occupation, and 36.9 percent of respondents expressed Switzerland-style “neutral” feelings toward their work.
The survey found that younger workers (18-34) feel more negative about their jobs. Those older than 35 were much more sanguine about work. Men between the ages of 35-44 and women between 55-64 held the most enthusiasm about their current gig. Older men and younger women reported the highest rates of dissatisfaction.
