A Closer Look

It’s great to be the boss pool finds

It pays to be the boss, in more ways than one.

In addition to bigger paychecks, America’s bosses are more satisfied with their family life, jobs and overall financial situation than are non-managerial employees, according to a recent Pew Research Center survey.

Top managers1 with children also are less likely than other working parents to say parenthood has been an obstacle to job advancement (33% vs. 17%) and more likely to say their current position is their career rather than a just a job to get them by.

But the differences between labor and management virtually disappear when the subject turns to gender discrimination in the workplace.

Bosses are no more likely than workers to say that society favors men over women (43% for bosses and 46% among workers). Similarly, only 4% of bosses and 9% of workers say women get preferential treatment while similar shares say both are treated equally (44% for bosses and 40% for workers).

Bosses and workers also agree that the country needs to make more changes in order to bring gender equality to the workplace (62% and 66%).
