Now I work for an ISP (I worked with one of the directors about 10 years ago) 10mins from home, working on everything that needs doing, and I would say that this is a dream job.
I guess it depends on your circumstances, and what you need at the time. Dream job is such a loose phrase. They have both had their downsides, but in happiness levels they have both excelled!
Edit. I should say that I worked at various places before, and none really compare, but they did give a good grounding and helped me figure out what it was i wanted from a job. (Hint:the money is nice, but after a while job satisfaction and quality of life take precedent)
Edit. We used to have a sales lady who would arrive in flash cars with the bumpers always broken/full of mud and grass. Keeping up appearances...
If you're happy and don't mind doing some work in the evenings that's good - its not forced, its a choice.
But if you are expected to do things out of hours, it starts to fall apart - others in the team are doin tuttig it so why aren't you? That's not good.
At the end of the day, if youths are happy and social and work life coexist happily, then that's a good quality of life. (For me anyway)
Edit. I'm in the pub after work (good quality of life ;)) so apologies for my rubbish explanation!
Edit 2. Hours are standard 9:00-5:30, but I have the freedom to work from home if I need to - which I've had for the last 6 years, its a definate plus!
