52 Percent of Tech Employees Believe Their Work Environment is Toxic

In August, we released survey results about the top reasons for employee burnout. Over 9,000 tech workers responded to our survey on our app, with the top three reasons being poor leadership, work overload, and the third being a toxic culture. Most adults spend a majority of their time at work and an unhealthy work environment can lead to poor health and even damage your personal relationships outside of the office.

We decided to survey our community of tech employees and see which employees say they have the most positive work environments versus most toxic work environments. We asked users to answer ‘TRUE’ or ‘FALSE’ to this statement: one simple question: I consider my current workplace a healthy working environment.

A total of 12,549 answered the survey question with 52.34% answering  with “False” versus 47.66% answering with “True.”

We also took a look at the results broken down by companies with at least 100 employee responses. Here’s what we found:

  • Intel led the way with 48.57% of employees answering that their workplace environment is not healthy.
  • Rounding out the top three were Amazon (with 46.56%) and eBay (with 44.55%).
  • LinkedIn had the lowest percentage of employees answering with 17.33%.
  • The two other companies with the lowest percentage of employees answering with TRUE are Google (with 23.77%) and Uber (with 29.73%).
