A lot of people nowadays want to work in Silicon Valley, and it's not surprising why that would be the case. You get to live in a beautiful part of the country, you get to be involved in the creation of technology that changes how society functions and you also make a lot of money. I wonder which of those factors is most important...
But how fun is it work in Silicon Valley? Well, it depends on where you're employed. A employee chat company called "Blind" decided survey their users to determine how happy and fulfilled they were with their current jobs in Silicon Valley.
First, the survey asked Silicon Valley employees if they believed they were compensated fairly for their work. Here were the results:
They then asked those employees if they were interested in leaving their companies. Here were the results:
Here is the question about interest in changing jobs amongst only the 10 biggest tech companies:
And here's a graph of the top 10 companies showing both whether employees feel they are compensated fairly and what percentage are looking for new jobs:
As you can see, Netflix is by far the big winner of this survey. They have both the highest percentage of employees saying they're compensated fairly, and the lowest amount interested in changing jobs.
Ironically, the two largest computer makers, Apple and Microsoft, are at the bottom of the list. It's pretty ironic because if you wanted to leave one of those companies and your experience is in building computers, you'd probably go to the other company, which also has unhappy workers.
Also despite Amazon and Google basically running the world at the moment, their employee happiness isn't the best and a majority of their workers want to change jobs. But they've probably already sold their souls to the Devils of Silicon Valley, so they're stuck there unless they're willing to sacrifice their first-born children.
