Glassdoor released their second annual employment satisfaction report card by comparing cities of overall employee satisfaction, number of employers hiring, business outlook expectations and more.

Results are based on local employee feedback from the past year and as per results, the Bay Area has taken the honors. San Francisco has taken the second spot. In fact, both areas are the homes for a few companies that won the Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Awards, too.

Rounding out the list, Washington, D.C. took the third spot and then Norfolk and Salt Lake City took four and five. Interestingly enough, Salt Lake City took first place regarding optimism: 52 percent of their employees believe business will improve within the next six months. Then there’s also the work-life balance in terms of working reasonable hours and enjoying the city and outdoors.
