How Happy Are Tech Employees At The Top Companies?


The image many of us have of the top companies in the tech industry is that of revealed-brick offices, filled with nap pods, beer fridges and ball pools. And in some cases this is absolutely right. Google offices are famously ‘fun’-filled and set up for optimal creativity and motivation, as are those of other top tech enterprises, including Facebook, Amazon and Apple.

Workers in these businesses also earn good wages, have great perks and career prospects, so they’re all super-happy, right? Well, yes and no, as it turns out. The following graphic from ecardshack looks at tech job satisfaction in relation to wages in different career stages, also looking at the age of employees and how long they have been with the same company.

Read on to see which companies come out on top.

  1. corinnemball – My purpose is to inspire team members to exceed their potential. By being well rounded in the field of Human Resources, I am able to fuel my passion of helping others succeed on a daily basis. I look forward to spreading positivity and encouraging teamwork through my current knowledge and continuously focusing on self-development. I have worked in Human Resources for more than four years and recently became the Senior Training Specialist. My training skills and public speaking abilities have improved incredibly as I started the position with no prior experience. I am always looking for challenges and was given the opportunity early in my career to open new properties within my organization by facilitating training courses for more than 100 team members. I am certified to offer leadership trainings within the organization, regularly create original trainings and encourage team building through multiple course offerings. In order to increase my knowledge in my field, I have had the opportunity to learn general HR skills, employee benefits and employment law. I am also gaining skills in employee relations in order to enhance my HR knowledge. I look forward to continuing my career as an enthusiastic, driven and flexible team member. As an MBA graduate, I constantly focus on growing my leadership skills in order to make the work environment more effective and efficient. With my MBA, I hope to add value by providing a well-rounded approach to every day issues and increasing critical thinking and reasoning to improve business functions as well as team member satisfaction. I have found my passion is closely related to leadership courses. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family, traveling and visiting local businesses.

    I would be interested to see if these stats applied to other fields as well. When newly hired employees start and are making what they think to be a good salary then they are happy with their jobs. I also think this could be tied to being more proactive and learning more about a field that the employee is passionate about. Drive, enthusiasm and motivation have a lot to do with job satisfaction, but I’m sure that all perks don’t hurt either.
