This paper investigates the factors contributing to the satisfaction and dissatisfaction of the public and private university teachers of Bangladesh and also searches for influential factors. Based on a survey, it attempts to gain insights into the satisfaction levels from the perspective of the university teachers. It has been found that there is a significant difference between public and private university teachers regarding job satisfaction on different factors. The present study attempts to order all influential factors following overall job satisfaction through some statistical techniques. It also compares the overall job satisfaction level and the nature of satisfaction among the public and private university teachers. The result reveals that teachers' age and job experience do not have any significant influence on job satisfaction though gender disparities were profound among their responses. This suggests us how to reduce the dissatisfaction level of the teachers in various universities and to find out the real nature and cause of the dissatisfaction.
