Depends on the reason and environment.  In my book, it is NEVER ok to cry over work issues where anyone can see you.  Go to the restroom, to your car, outside, wherever.  It is not professional to shed tears in the office over work issues.  However, personal reasons, deaths, illness in the family, etc. it is alright and more human to show your emotions, and most everyone in a workplace would understand this.

I was in a position of my job being eliminated.  I did not cry, it would not have been appropriate.  However, my supervisor literally sobbed as she was breaking the news.  Any respect I had left for her was gone in that moment.
