I find it interesting how polls like these continue to treat each of the military branches almost as separate Departments. They posted a note in small text below the polls. Looking very much like an afterthought or an inconsequential footnote, it reads:

Department of the Air Force; Department of the Army; Department of the Navy; and Office of the Secretary of Defense, Joint Staff, Defense Agencies, and Department of Defense Field Activities are part of the Department of Defense. The 2012 Best Places to Workindex score for the entire Department of Defense is 61.6, a 2.7-point decline from its 2011 index score of 64.3.

A word of caution, “make certain that you are NOT measuring apples and oranges” requires significant number crunching/data manipulation to insure that the numbers truly mean what they appear to be saying

My agency is at the bottom of the list…again! I hope that this will serve as a wake up call for leadership as, but I can’t say that I’m optimistic about our prospects for improving morale or engagement, but I’m going to do all I can to do my part and stop whining. Stay tuned for a new “Wellbeing” survey in early 2013.

David, I wouldn’t be surprised if they used to do this poll without separating the military branches and people complained, wanted to know which branch was “best”– perhaps a point of pride for Navy?

IMO interesting list especially when comparing it with the public sector list
