Posted on 12/10/2013 8:09:31 PM PST by SeekAndFind
Employees at Pfizer really love their jobs. The pharmaceutical giant was voted the happiest company in America by its own workers for the second year running, according to an annual survey from job site CareerBliss. Health care company Kaiser Permanente took second place, followed by Texas Instruments.
To come up with its ranking, CareerBliss evaluated thousands of employee-submitted reviews across hundreds of companies. Workers were asked to rate their employers on several happiness factors, including work-life balance, company culture, compensation, and growth opportunities.
Each employee review was given an average score between one and five. These scores were tabulated to produce a company's overall rating, or "bliss score," with a higher score indicating happier employees.
Here's a look at the happiest companies in America, as well as each business's bliss score, average employee salary, and ranking on last year's list.

So many people that work low pay jobs, feel that the companies they work for are terrible.
When you look at companies like Pfizer, Kaiser and TI, these are companies with a lot of educated, professional and trained people.
I wonder. How many of these companies are viewed positively because their workers themselves have a different view point.
How many employees working near minimum wage jobs, feel life and their employers owe them something.
How many employees who have worked to advance themselves, realize that life itself is hard, and because they have already formed some mind frame of overcoming obstacles, they aren't put of by mere inconveniences and thus not aggrieved because their employers actually require them to work?
Just a thought.
I used to work with an old guy whose daughter graduated from Georgia Tech and took a job with Eli Lilly in Indianapolis.
He told me several times how much she loved her job. She was a pharmaceutical sales lady. She would visit Dr.s offices etc.
Are the NSA, IRS and other loose-cannon “companies” on the list of the happy 25?
One owns our secrets, and the other owns our money.
I’m sure that is fun for them, because it is pain for us.
Got news on the Pfizer survey-— it is all fabricated. Numerous sites on the web— off official sites... you learn what is really going on. Esp. as regards the lobbying/buying of obamauaocare.
The company shed itself of 10s of thousands of loyal career workers to get the money to push obamaumaocare. The survey is bogus.
Surprised Southwest Airlines isn’t on the list.
Mrs Goldthwait: "Don't you make fun of Elvis! That man was the King of Rock and Roll! He laughed all the way to the bank!"
Bobcat: "Mom, Elvis took hundreds of pills a day. I'm pretty sure he laughed everywhere he went."
Pharmaceutical Company Says Its New Anti-Depressant Is 'Worthless And Dumb'
EAST BRUNSWICK, NJAt a press conference Monday, Peter Cafazzo, CEO of Brunley-Hunt Pharmaceuticals (BHP), introduced his company's latest anti-depressant, Cyntrex, a product he described as "a totally stupid waste of time that probably nobody will ever want ever".... The new drug, which stimulates the production of neurotransmitters in sync with the body's natural diurnal catecholamine rhythmscausing a more even mood level than the frequent "crest and trough" patterns associated with traditional psychoactive medicinal treatmentsis something that "everybody will laugh at," Cafazzo said. Among the reasons Cafazzo cited for Cyntrex's "totally doomed future" is BHP's inability to do anything half as well as its chief competitors. "Prozac is so great," Cafazzo said. "We'll never make anybody as happy as Prozac does. I just know it."
Yes, I call BS on Pfizer being #1 - especially when you factor in the sales people and lay-offs.
I figured they were #1 because of the drugs they are taking :)
I have to wonder about Intel - all I’ve heard is that place is a real pressure cooker.
Does Pfizer make Prozac and other happy pills?
as a contractor there last year I have to say it was not fun times. much prefer MS (not micromanaged down to the second).
The happiest cows are at Blue Bell Ice Cream in Brenham, Texas.
I work for my own company. Show up when I want, leave when I want, and the boss brings in beers once in a while.
