Being a manager improves job satistfaction, but not stress levels

Embargoed until: Publicly released:

Being the manager improves your job satisfaction but not your stress levels according to Aussie and international research. The study of more than 700 workers and bosses found that levels of stress were similar among managers and employees but being a manager could increase your job satisfaction. However, there was some bad news for managers over 40 as this group reported higher stress and lower job satisfaction than others. For employees, having more than five years of seniority was linked to higher stress and lower job satisfaction.
