    What make a job more stressful than the other?

    What make a job more stressful than the other? Is it worth staying in a job that is constantly stressful from the time you start to the closing of the day just because the compensation is six figures?

    Being tired of it or having out-grown it.

      I completely agree with you and also may be when you have another better job offer somewhere else.

    Whether it's worth it depends on whether you are fulfilled by it.
    Some people thrive in a high pressure environment, gain a great sense of achievement from their work, and actually enjoy it, despite the stress levels.

    If the reward is purely financial, then you need to ask yourself how important the money is to you? If you can live without so such money, you may be happier in a lower paid job, but if you can't live without that level of income, you could move to a lower paid job and be equally stressed, because you don't feel you are earning enough.

    Weigh up all the pros and cons of the job, and how important those factors are to you.
    Do you have good relationships with your colleagues?
    Do you feel valued?
    Is the money important to you?
    And most importantly, if you weren't doing that job, what would you be doing?

    Sometimes, it's not the actual job that's stressing you out, but the knowledge that you want to be doing something else instead.

      - You have nailed it perfectly. Having no money can cause stress and working to earn money can also cause stress. So identifying the ultimate goal for the kind of paid- job you want and finding the root cause of stress is critical.

    I think the you stop enjoying you job, it becomes stressful for you irrespective of the six figures salary fact. We should see whether our priority is six figures or peace of mind and also whether the job is really that stressfull or we can make it still enjoyble by being little bit organised.

      Interesting observation. The bottom line is, the person's decision based on his or her priorities and what is more beneficial and tolerable.
