According to what I would call a blatantly unsurprising discovery, the 2013 State of the American Workplace Report has noted that 70% of U.S. workers hate their job. I thought this part was particularly enlightening of what's wrong with most workplaces:

Popular -- and oftentimes expensive -- strategies to boost work morale, like ping pong tables and catered meals, aren't really helping either, according to Gallup. The report concluded that the mood at the office comes from the top down; if managers focused on their employees strengths more, the study estimates, they could double the average of U.S. workers who have strong performance.

"Here's something they'll probably never teach you in business school: The single biggest decision you make in your job -- bigger than all of the rest -- is who you name manager," wrote Gallup CEO and Chairman Jim Clifton.
