Description: While job satisfaction is a major concern in today's organizations, there is little empirical research concerning Information technology "IT" and its professionals. A survey of 132 IT professionals (99 men and 33 women) in various Southern California organizations were conducted using the Minnesota Satisfaction Questionnaire "MSQ" short form containing the 20 question-general satisfaction scale to indicate their satisfaction or dissatisfaction with research variables along a five-point scale. Through an empirical study and descriptive statistics, this paper examined the effects of gender on job satisfaction and accepted all its three null hypotheses that gender does not play a role in job satisfaction among IT professionals in the United States. Implications for research and practice are discussed. The research contributes to job satisfaction literature by providing empirical findings regarding the relationship between job satisfaction and the subject of gender. [PUBLICATION ABSTRACT]
