Authored By: Joyce Marsh on 2/23/2016

It’s not unusual to complain to coworkers about your job or unload on your loved ones when you get home from work about a bad day at work. 

On the flip side, most of us have been known from time to time to actually gush or brag about what they do for a living and where they do it.  It’s not unusual to complain to coworkers about your job or unload on your loved ones when you get home from work about a bad day at work.

After you read through the lists you may notice some converse likes/dislikes such as Work Environment/Poor Work Environment, Flexible Work Schedule/Inflexible Work Schedule and Company Culture/Poor Company Culture. One thing we noticed was that Good Pay and Low Pay were on the lists. This is a common denominator in many companies, but if your company’s pay tends to trend on the “dislike” list, there’s something you can do about it.
