San Francisco Nears Top for Employment Satisfaction

San Francisco has some of the best career opportunities, compensation, and business confidence of any city in the country, according to a report out Friday from Glassdoor.

And the future looks bright: 48 percent of workers in San Francisco are confident business will improve over the next six months, according to Glassdoor. (Twenty percent expect it to get worse.) This is San Francisco’s second consecutive year in the No. 2 spot. San Jose took the top spot, with the highest score for compensation and benefits.

Glassdoor ranked the country’s 50 largest cities based on employee feedback. To make the list, cities had to have at least 700 company reviews posted to Glassdoor from May 2013 to May 2014, and at least 60 business outlook ratings from April 29 to May 28, 2014.
