The 10 Happiest Cities For Young Professionals

It's where Bernanke is sprinkling money!

The results of a survey correlate fairly closely with where newly printed Federal Reserve money is landing: Silicon Valley, the federal government, oil, money management/banking. Philadelphia and Phoenix appear to be somewhat outliers from these categories.

According to

1. San Jose, California

2. San Francisco, California

3. Washington, D.C.

4. Chicago, Illinois

5. San Diego, California

6. Riverside, California

7. Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

8. Houston, Texas

9. Phoenix, Arizona

10. Boston, Massachusetts released its list of the 10 happiest cities for young professionals based on analysis from more than 45,000 employee generated reviews between April 2012 and March 2013. Young professionals, defined by CareerBliss as employees with less than 10 years’ experience in a full-time position, were asked to evaluate ten factors that affect workplace happiness. Those include one’s relationship with the boss and co-workers, work environment, job resources, compensation, growth opportunities, company culture, company reputation, daily tasks, and control over the work one does on a daily basis.

They then valued each factor on a five-point scale, and also indicated how important it was to their overall happiness at work. The numbers were combined to find an average rating of overall employee happiness for each respondent, and then sorted by location to find which cities had the happiest young employees.
