Staffers Say They Want Work-Life Balance

Thirty-eight percent of staffers say they would leave the Hill for a job where they could better balance their work and personal lives, according to a new study. 

A report released Wednesday from the Congressional Management Foundation found that overall office culture, paid time off, and work-life flexibility were most important to respondents and each category received low satisfaction ratings. 
And you may not guess it by the size of the happy hour crowd at Union Pub, but 56 percent of staffers surveyed believe they work more hours than their private sector counterparts.
