“CareerBliss recognizes those universities that excel in providing a happy work culture,” Golledge said.
 
Employees from universities nationwide submitted independent company reviews evaluating their work culture and what factors impact overall workplace happiness.
 
CareerBliss data found Auburn University tops in providing a happy work environment. The school earned a 4.40 “Bliss Score.”

CareerBliss data evaluated factors such as one’s relationship with his or her boss and co-workers, work environment, job resources, compensation, growth opportunities and job control.
 
Each review was given an average score indicating where the company places between one and five. A minimum of 10 reviews per university was required for the data.
