MBAs PARTICULARLY HAPPY AMONG THOSE SURVEYED
Overall, MBAs scored firms more highly than bankers with bachelor degrees. In overall satisfaction, MBAs produced an 8.01 average, compared against 7.76 against college graduates (and a 7.83 overall average). MBAs were also far happier with promotion policies, the ability to challenge others, client interactions, and supervisor relationships than bachelor’s degree holders (and the sample in general). Conversely, college graduates were more satisfied with benefits and formal training than MBAs.
For MBAs and business graduates, these numbers are particularly important. “They show which firms will be the more desirable to work for,” says Loosvelt. “As time goes on, you may not be looking at just prestige, compensation, making an impact, or having a life. Rankings have an impact depending on what’s important to you, whether it is rising up the ranks…or starting a family. These rankings indicate which firms are best for that.”
In particular, Loosvelt cites quality of life as a changing indicator on Wall Street. “It’s definitely getting better and it’s showing up in the rankings.”
