K. Soujanya, S. Anitha Devi
Job satisfaction is a complex phenomenon that has been studied quite extensively. Job satisfaction positively influences the faculty's performance, students' achievement, organizational commitment and work motivation. It provides happiness and contentment, whereas dissatisfaction from the job indicates negative feelings towards work and consequently the faculty apparently feels stress of the occupation. The present study concentrates on studying the various dimensions of job satisfaction among the faculty members belonging to six major disciplines of Intermediate, Degree and Post Graduate Colleges located in Krishna and Guntur Districts of Andhra Pradesh. The results showed that various factors such as inbuilt programs for recreation, picnics, outings, employees rating their jobs equal to their qualifications & training, facilities like medical care, housing, subsidized rationing, travelling etc, convenient places of posting, opportunity for mobility, increased responsibilities, training and orientation and scope for freedom were found to be the factors significantly contributing for job satisfaction of the faculty members.
