Job Satisfaction (?
XThe job satisfaction faces show how satisfied employees are with their job at a particular employer, relative to other employers. For example, when all five faces appear smiling, that doesn't mean all employees at that employer are "Extremely satisfied," but it does mean a significant majority are "Extremely satisfied" compared to workers at other employers.
