Cities With The Happiest (And Unhappiest) Employees

Getting up and going to work can put anyone in a cranky mood, but it turns out folks in some cities don't necessarily hate it as much as those in others. 

A new report by jobsite kununu looked at more than 86,000 employee reviews in the 50 largest metropolitan areas in the U.S. to determine the cities with the happiest and unhappiest employees and you may be surprised by the results.

Topping the list is Miami, Florida followed by Los Angeles, California, with both areas scoring high for overall quality of life outside of work, thanks to things like beaches and plenty of sunshine. Affordable housing also goes a long way towards happiness on the job, because it takes some of the financial pressure off.
