That's a question that was asked in the 2013 iVillage Career Week Survey.  You can see the results at this link:

I found the following results a bit surprising, I wouldn't have thought that pay would rank so much lower than other factors: 

--What makes women happy at work

69% like what they do

51% location/easy commute

48% flexible work hours  

47% like their colleagues

38% like my boss

36% pays well

34% benefits

28% stress free & easy

22% opportunity for advancement

Do do your own priorites match the survey results?

I walked away from a high paying job to do what I do now and I haven't looked back. I've yet (after 10 years) to reclaim that original salary either, but it's so much more rewarding to do what I do now than to make money for someone else and not even use most of my brain. Yuck!
