An interesting item posted online recently by Daniel Bukszpan of CNBC regarding the 10 Most Hated Jobs listed the following (in order of employee dissatisfaction):
- Director of Information Technology
- Director of Sales and Marketing
- Product Manager
- Senior Web Developer
- Technical Specialist
- Electronics Technician
- Law Clerk
- Technical Support Analyst
- CNC Machinist
- Marketing Manager
These surprising results come from a 2011 survey of thousands of employees by CareerBliss, which reported that survey respondents listed limited growth opportunity, lack of reward and disrespect as reasons for job dissatisfaction. Surprising, since many of these positions are respected, require specialized training and pay relatively well.
What is your take on this survey? If you have one of these jobs and love it—or have one of these jobs and agree with survey respondents that it’s awful—I’d love to get your feedback!
