    Synonym for "Working environment": workplace, labor environment...

    I am using "working environment" in a paragraph and need other similar expression not to repeat myself. Is it correct or similar: workplace or labor environment?

    I guess you could use "workplace" if you want to. There is "job site" too.

    Yes, but you understand that I am meaning a sector or area, and not an specific site.

    You could use "workplace".
    “Every miserable fool who has nothing at all of which he can be proud, adopts as a last resource pride in the nation to which he belongs; he is ready and happy to defend all its faults and follies tooth and nail, thus reimbursing himself for his own inferiority.”

    It seems that there are not a lot of synonyms for that. However, you could go to dictionary.com and for synonyms of "workplace".

    www.dictionary.com

    (Edited to note that you could work a factory, an office, or a plant. That's about it, I guess.)

    In that case, "working environment" might be wrong.
    You could use 'sector', 'area' (since that's what you mean), 'field', 'category'.
    Why not write a few sentences and we can tell you whether they sound OK?

    You should write "not a specific site." Use an only before a word or number which begins with a vowel sound when spoken aloud.
