Have you bought or sold property lately? Chances are your real estate agent is happier than you are â€“ at least when it comes to work.
We took a look at more than 65,000 reviews submitted by employees in 2012 to determine the happiest and unhappiest jobs in america. In the reviews, workers rate several factors that contribute to job happiness, such as company culture, compensation and the work they do.
The least happy job? Â Associate attorney (which has the highest average salary of all the jobs included).
â€œAssociate attorneys stated they felt most unhappy with their company culture,â€ Golledge said in the Forbes piece. â€œIn many cases, law firms are conducted in a structured environment that is heavily centered on billable hours. It may take several years for an associate attorney to rise to the rank of partner.â€
