Top 10 Cities Where Employees Are Happiest

Hands up!

It’s not enough to love your job, you’ve got to love where you work. The city that your company and job are in is just as important as the work you do every day. And interestingly enough, all cities are not created equal. In fact, quality of life is often dictated by job satisfaction and compensation.

Glassdoor recently rolled out the 25 Best Cities for Jobs in the U.S. and took a look at three factors: how easy it is to get a job, how affordable it is to live there and how satisfied employees are working there. We took it one step further to bring in the job satisfaction piece, and the results are very interesting. Here are the top 10 cities where employees are happiest.
