    Pros

    Job comfort means job security, and that can lead to less anxiety. Without the constant worry and stress of losing your job or trying to over-perform to keep your job, you live and work your day-to-day with relative ease. You can voice your opinion without fear of repercussions. You can put away for your retirement or send Jane to private school. In an era when a good many people are unemployed, any sense of job comfort can instill a deep sense of gratitude, fortune and luck.

    Cons

    If you’ve ever experienced job comfort, you know it’s not all it’s cracked up to be. The possibilities often remain just that, and instead of feeling calm and motivated on the side, you end up feeling dejected, useless and scrolling through the Internet all day. If you’re feeling depressed from constant Facebook comparisons, you may be on the wrong side of job comfort.

    Advice to Management

    Great Management
