Methodology: CareerBliss data evaluates the key factors that affect work happiness including: work-life balance, one’s relationship with his/her boss and co-workers, work environment, job resources, compensation, growth opportunities, company culture, company reputation, daily tasks and job control over work performed on a daily basis. The data accounts for how an employee values each factor.  Each review is given an average score indicating where the company places between one and five. The following data was compiled from more than 48,000 independent company reviews from April 2012- March 2013. A minimum of 25 reviews per job title was required for this data.  A young professional is defined as someone with less than ten years experience.
