Although a lot of discussions have happened on taking care of holistic career aspirations of employees it is high time definite steps are taken to arrest this dissatisfaction," Roy added.

Among the respondents who claimed to be unsatisfied, 50 percent count poor work-life balance, 30 percent state meaningless work and 20 percent say poor salary as the reason for this dissatisfaction.
