From The Cornell Sun:
Although Cornell’s female faculty report higher levels of satisfaction than they did in 2005, male faculty still say they are happier with their jobs than their female colleagues are, according to the results of the 2010 Faculty Work Life Survey.
Looking at the report, though, the levels of satisfaction are pretty high for everyone, with a larger disparity in the “very satisfied” category, which gap is almost closed once you add in the “somewhat satisfied” responses:
Moral of the story: You can’t please everyone (so stop trying?).
