Understanding whether certain jobs are ‘good’ or ‘bad’ is a complex question that can be approached in numerous ways. Clarifying what factors make particular occupations within particular firms suitable for different people is at the heart of this discussion.

The results indicate that firms which are more international provide better career paths for managers, perhaps due to better overall managerial practices.
