Around half of the professionals being surveyed have very satisfying careers, more than seven in ten are highly satisfied with their family lives, and 53% feel very good about their personal growth and development. But the mix of career and family life doesn't necessarily translate into overall satisfaction for every group. For example, single-earner men are most pleased with their careers but least satisfied with their families. Dual-earner mothers are pretty much the reverse — satisfied with their families but not so much with their careers. Dual-earner fathers are reasonably contented with career and family.

Keywords:   careers, personal growth, development, single earners, dual earners, families, careers
