The number one complaint, according to respondents to the survey, is the scope of work they are given.

This fell into two broad categories: the belief that they had too much work to do or that their work is predictable and boring.

The second most important factor was their relationship with their immediate boss. Salary only ranked third as a contributor to job dissatisfaction.
