The CareerBliss data evaluates the key factors which affect work happiness, including: work-life balance, one’s relationship with their boss and co-workers, their work environment, job resources, compensation, growth opportunities, company culture, company reputation, their daily tasks, and job control over the work that they do on a daily basis. The data accounts for how an employee values each factor as well as how important that factor is to the employee’s overall happiness. Each review is given an average score indicating where the company places between one and five. A young professional is defined as someone who has less than 10 working experience based on their resume, as of the end of August 2011. A company or city must have a minimum of 50 reviews in order to qualify within the data set. All data is compiled from 2010-2011. More than 100,000 reviews were taken into account for the data set.
