In review these aren't reasons people hate their jobs. These are things people dislike about their jobs. Each and every one of the items listed should be things that are constantly reviewed, analyzed and addressed as required, in any company. If someone Hates their job, it is not because of the things listed. Hate is a deep emotion. It contains many other negative ideologies that drive hate up to the top of action. People don't usually "Hate" their job, there are just things they don't like about it. Ultimately, the number 10 point can sum up all the others below it, "They think the grass is greener someplace else." 

          This doesn't mean they hate their jobs. It doesn't mean they are not giving 100% to their work. It is a normal human, sometimes mis-conception, that things are better somewhere else. They may be, but it doesn’t mean you will not find fault in your new place as well. We as people always look for things to fix. If we don't feel we can fix them, we will complain about them, hoping we can find someone who can make the changes. Though, if you really hate your job, you should get out of it as quickly as possible. Hate for anything can affect your life in the worst ways. It can bleed over into other relationships you have in your personal life. It could cause you to explode at the wrong person at the wrong time and who knows what could happen then. Hate is a strong word and a powerful emotion. 

          It was once said to me, "Look at your workplace as your second marriage. You're going to spend more time there than with your wife." I have yet to find anyone that would refute the truth in that saying. Similarly, when a marriage goes bad, there is separation. One side didn't communicate, the other wasn't giving enough and so on. Ultimately, both parties have begun to believe "The grass is greener on the other side." In this separation, things can go amicably or horribly. I've seen couples who can still hang out on a regular basis. Then I've seen ones that couldn't be within ten feet of each other or the cops are getting called. The differentiator I've witnessed between the two is time. In the former, the pair have initiated the separation prior to hating each other. The latter, they have allowed their "don't likes" to become more than the initial issue, they’ve allowed it to develop into a Hate. 

          I'm not trying to be Dr. Phil here, far from it. The point is that this same time issue exists within the relationship between you and your "second spouse". If you do not communicate the issues you have, and in a company potentially many have, then you are allowing what are "don't likes" to become "Hates". It's just a matter of time.
