The Most Satisfying Place to Work in (Almost) Every State

When your life or job becomes stale, sometimes starting over somewhere new is the best decision you can make — assuming you have the means to get there.

most satisfying places to workIf a change of scenery happens to be what you seek, we can help you cut your job search time in half. The PayScale Hero Awards give you leads on organizations that have a proven track record of being satisfying places to work.

We know this because we surveyed over 200,000 employees to find out. Not every single state was featured in our report, which doesn’t mean those states don’t have satisfying places to work. We choose to feature only companies who met an 80 percent or above satisfaction level, so you can feel confident that you’re heading into a positive work culture.
