VA Beach ranked in top 10 happiest places to work by Forbes

RICHMOND (WWBT) -- Forbes has ranked Virginia Beach as the sixth happiest place in the nation to work based on information compiled by CareerBliss.com.

This list of the happiest and unhappiest cities to work in is based on analysis of more than 36,000 independent employee reviews between Nov. 2011 and Nov. 2012. Employees evaluated ten factors which include one's relationship with the boss and co-workers, work environment, job resources, compensation, growth opportunities, company culture, company reputation, daily tasks, and control over the work done does on a daily basis.

The study found that most of the unhappiest places have frigid winters or sweltering summers. Unwelcomed snowstorms and dreaded heat waves can affect your happiness, but so can income, workplace environment, and career opportunities (or lack thereof).
