Do IT People Hate Their Jobs?

A recent study suggests that IT people really don’t seem to like their jobs very much. Apparently, only 4% of IT people found themselves “highly engaged” with their jobs — a number that has dropped from the still low, but not as low, 12%, two years earlier. There are concerns, of course, for what this means for companies and their IT staff. It certainly raises some questions about whether or not this is a potential issue going forward, and how companies might deal with this. Are the problems caused by the way IT people are treated? Or does it have more to do with their own worries about the future of the IT profession? And given that so many people in IT aren’t particularly enthusiastic about their jobs, how can that be dealt with?
