Trolling the newswires and sifting through my inbox this week, I came across a few press releases from media companies—IDG, TechTarget, Time Out Chicago—touting their status as one of the “best places to work” in their given cities or states.

Ordinarily this type of “news” wouldn’t be on our radar but, given comments about low morale, I thought it might be time to draw attention to people who at least seem to be happy working in media.

IDG made Boston Business Journal’s list of Best Places to Work in Massachusetts for the fourth straight year; TechTarget made it—among companies in the greater Boston area—for the third. Four-year-old Time Out Chicago made the National Association for Business Resources list of “101 Best and Brightest Companies to Work for in Chicago” for the first time this year.

So the rest of you happy media worker-bees, speak up. Why are you still in this industry? What is making it worth it for you? Post your responses here, and those of you at the helm take note—as one commenter warns: “Morale at [many] companies is in the basement, which does make for a less productive employee because all they do is worry about their next paycheck. As a result the downward spiral continues.”
