Cincinnati named unhappiest city to work in

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Do you dread going to work each day? If you live in Cincinnati, it sounds like you're not alone.

Forbes.com named Cincinnati, Orlando and Indianapolis as the top three cities where you can find some of the nation's unhappiest workers.

The data came from the online career site CareerBliss.com using more than 200,000 independent employee reviews from 2013.

Workers from across the country were asked to evaluate 10 factors that can affect happiness at work, such as your relationship with your boss and co-workers, work environment, job resources, compensation, growth opportunities, company culture and reputation, daily tasks and control over the work done on a daily basis.

They answered each factor using a five-point scale, and indicated how important each factor was to their overall happiness at work. Those numbers were combined to get the overall rating of employee happiness for each person, which in turn was sorted by location to find the ten unhappiest cities for workers.

Forbes notes the unhappiest cities for workers does not mean they are considered the "worst" cities to live in. They're saying cities like Cincinnati are places where workers are the least satisfied right now, based on CareerBliss research.

And don't worry. They also put together where people smile the most at work too.

The unhappiest U.S. metro areas to work in, according to Forbes.com:

1. Cincinnati-Middletown, OH (Index score of 3.32)

2. Orlando-Kissimmee, FL (Index score of 3.52)

3. Indianapolis, IN (Index score of 3.55)

4. Denver-Aurora, CO (Index score of 3.56)

5. Pittsburgh, PA (Index score of 3.58)

6. Tampa-St. Petersburg-Clearwater, FL (Index score of 3.59)

7. Columbus, OH (Index score of 3.61)

8. Sacramento-Arden-Arcade-Roseville, CA (Index score of 3.63)

9. Miami-Fort Lauderdale-Pompano Beach, FL (Index score of 3.63)

10. Arlington, VA (Index score of 3.64)

The happiest U.S. metro area to work in, according to Forbes.com, was San Jose-Sunnyvale-Santa Clara, California metro area with an index score of 3.93. Employees said they were more than satisfied with their co-workers and their daily tasks.

Rounding out second and third place were Washington D.C. (3.927) and San Francisco (3.925). Las Vegas was No. 4 spot and Salt Late City was the fifth happiest city to work in.

Editor's note: I work in Cincinnati and I love it. So don't worry, be happy.
