The study on job satisfaction of the senior level executives of Bangladesh showed that other than work itself there is not many strong motivating forces present to satisfy the executives. Both male and female executives have confirmed that their companies recognize their good works and they are also clear about the goals of their organizations. It is noted that there is hardly any gender difference regarding job satisfaction, even though, there is less scope of promotion possibility in most of the organizations. Both male and female executives expressed relatively higher level of agreement about their liking of coworkers and enjoying their jobs and company, suggesting less sex discrimination, though they mildly agreed that there is bickering and fighting at work. Regarding satisfaction on benefits received the male executives are found somewhat less satisfied compared to the female executives. Interestingly enough both the groups have indicated that there are benefits, which they don't enjoy at present, but they should have those benefits in future and should be given more frequently than the current practice. It is noted that there exists red-tapism in the organization. Both the groups preferred to choose an indifferent view on their opportunity for advancement and payments received from the company. A higher level of agreement on the part of male executives on good communication in their organization may be explained by the fact that because of social and cultural reasons female executives may not enjoy easy and direct communication access compared to their male counterpart even in the office set up.
