dc.description.abstract The purpose of the study was to investigate and analyze perceived intrinsic satisfaction, extrinsic satisfaction, and general job satisfaction among exempt level employees. Specifically, the study was designed to identify job satisfaction relative to employee age and sex. The research was conducted in a manufacturing organization listed in Fortune 500.Data collection involved the administration l: confidential self-report instrument (Minnesotasatisfaction Questionnaire, Short Form) regarding employee perceptions of job satisfaction. The final sample included fifty-seven exempt level employees of which. twenty- six were female and thirty-one were male. The average age the male was 37.3 years and for females 32.8 years. The average age of the two groups was 34.5 years. Data obtained from the respondents were analyzed by applying a 2 x 3 analysis of variance with the factors of age and sex considered to be fixed.An analysis made of the data obtained from the respondents determined no significant correlation of intrinsic satisfaction, extrinsic satisfaction, and general job satisfaction existed relative to respondent age. The data, however, did indicate a significant correlation between intrinsic satisfaction and general job satisfaction did exist relative to respondent sex. No correlation between extrinsic satisfaction relative to respondent age was found.The data further found both male and female groups described job security to be the source of highest satisfaction. Advancement was the source of least satisfaction for both groups. en_US
