“People might think that the work environment security guards often face, such as working late hours alone at night, would be what contributes to unhappiness,” Matt Miller, the chief technology officer at CareerBliss told Smith. “However, our data shows that growth opportunities and lack of rewards in this field is what affected the overall sentiment around this type of job. Work environment scored relatively high.”

2. Registered Nurse
