Job search website Indeed just released their job happiness index for 2016, which included a ranking of the happiest metro areas in the US. The report ranked the 50 most populous cities in the country by average job satisfaction rating on a scale of one to five, culled from Indeed's database of more than 10 million employee reviews.
California came on out top, encompassing six of the top-20 cities. Los Angeles boasts the happiest employees in the country, followed by Miami and San Diego.
