Survey says Quality of Life beats Hefty Paycheck

Big paychecks and bonuses aren't everything.

Some employees would prefer a better quality of life than a higher salary, suggests a survey released Monday.

Sixty-two percent (62%) of small-business employees think that salaries are better at large companies, according to's Working for a Small Business Survey.

But they like working at small companies anyway for reasons that include work/life balance, commute times, loyalty, bosses, and relationships with co-workers.

Forty-six percent (46%) of those surveyed said the work/life balance was one of the reasons they stayed at a small firm, while 38 percent also cited having an easier commute, 35 percent credited loyalty, 31 percent like their boss and 30 percent mentioned relationships with co-workers.
