9 Reasons Americans Increasingly Hate Their Jobs

Annual "Value of Work" Survey Shows Employee Discontent on the Rise

6. Lack of Commitment

How committed are you to your job?

Back in the old days, it was the norm to get a job in your early 20s and work there for the next 40 years, retiring with a cake and a gold watch. Most employees were “company men” who were loyal for a lifetime to their respective employers. But today is a new day.

When asked if they were “100 percent committed” to their jobs, 52% of respondents replied in the affirmative. That’s down from the 71% who answered positively last year, proving many employees are frustrated and willing to jump ship if something better comes along.
