The US military may seem like grim duty, but it's actually a relatively nice place to work, a new survey found. In fact, members of all four branches of the Armed Forces and the National Guard were happier than employees of Disney, Microsoft, and Johnson & Johnson. “Despite challenges that may occur when serving our country, including the possibility of going to war, the military provides many of the essential elements to finding happiness at work," a psychology professor tells the Christian Science Monitor.
That includes "having a meaningful impact on the world, having true camaraderie with your co-workers and having the opportunities to develop skills,” Brummel said. The Air Force ranked highest, at the No. 5 slot, while the Army National Guard, Marines, Navy, and Army took Nos. 7, 8, 9, and 11, respectively. Disney ranked No. 41. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Google took the top slot.
