New research shows - it's tough at the top

A survey of 1,800 U.S. workers by researchers at the University of Toronto has found that, despite the fact that there are compensations to being in charge at work, it is still tough at the top. The study found that while people with 'job authority' - those who could direct, hire and fire and decide pay levels - earnt more money and had more stimulating jobs they also experienced more interpersonal conflict at work and had a worse work-life balance. The increased risks of stress, anger and poor health outweighed the benefits of being at the top of the heap.
