There’s more to a job than a good salary and robust benefits package. If you don’t enjoy the work you’re doing – and feel comfortable in the environment where you’re doing it – you likely won’t stay in the position for long. A leader in employee staffing solutions, Bolder Staffing, Inc. and Bolder Professional Placements helps candidates find positions that meet their needs and wants. Here are some key factors in determining whether a work environment will suit you long term:

Work Style

Your work environment plays a key role in your overall career happiness. To that end, you should consider the type of office you want to work in along with the job you want to do. For example, would you be happy working in a cubicle in the middle of 20 people? Or do you need your own peaceful office to be productive? Think about both the environment you desire and the supervision you require to do your best work.

Company Culture

It’s hard to be happy in a job if you don’t enjoy the company culture. While some workers revel in spending time with co-workers outside work, attending happy hours and other social occasions, others have busy lives that offer little time for socializing. Additionally, some workers are more comfortable completing assignments as part of a team, while others prefer independent responsibility. Before accepting a new position, it’s wise to determine whether the company culture will mesh with your preferences or leave you feeling awkward and uncomfortable.


Of course, some people are more adaptable in terms of their workplace preferences. They might enjoy working with others sometimes and working independently at others and prefer jobs that allow them to learn and try new things. If you fall into this category, be sure to let interviewers know; the odds are they’ll appreciate it.
