A recent global survey has revealed that software developers feel they have the best work-life balance, while HR professionals and consultants feel they could have a better social life.
In a survey by salary-benchmarking site Emoulement.com, 1,360 professionals were asked about how they feel about their work-life balance.
Some 71% of software developers felt their balance was either ‘satisfactory’ or ‘great’. Project managers were most likely to be enthused by their life outside work, as 28% of respondents felt they had a ‘great’ work-life balance, despite a large number (38%) saying their work-life balance was ‘awful’.
Consultants were very negative, as 49% of respondents consider their work-life balance to be awful, with only 13% classifying it as ‘great’. HR professionals were also largely negative, with 42% saying their work-life balance was ‘awful’.
