San Jose is the best place in the country to work in, according to a ranking of the nation’s cities by online career site CareerBliss.com.
The company said its ranking was based on reviews from employees on eight workplace happiness factors: growth opportunities, compensation, benefits, work-life balance, career advancement, senior management, job security and whether the employee would recommend their company to others.
Workers were asked to rank each factor from one to five regarding how important that element was to their overall happiness. An average rating was then deduced on overall workplace happiness for each city.
San Jose ranked No. 1 among the top 50 cities on benefits, career advancement, compensation, growth opportunity, recommend to others, senior management, work-life balance and minimum salary ($36,812.83).
