Despite the risk of getting shot at or stepping on a roadside bomb, the Army and National Guard rank higher on a recent survey than Disney theme parks when it comes to worker happiness. Maybe it has something to do with the GI Bill being the only way anyone can get a home loan these days, or the fact that the VA provides you with some health care, pre-existing conditions notwithstanding?

In the career advancement category of the survey by CareerBliss, nothing beat the military. Not even Google, which ranks as the top place to work overall. Disney came in at No. 41 on the rankings and Microsoft was only slightly better at No. 39.
