Description

Information technology (IT) professionals develop and maintain quality information systems (IS). As capable IT professionals are scant resource, many organizations work hard to attract and retain them within the organization. Therefore, maintain and improve job satisfaction of IT professionals are critical theme for organizations, and it is an important theme for IS researchers too. We believe many factors affect job satisfaction of IT professionals. According to literature review, we suppose IT occupational culture (ITOC) and IT organization structure (ITOS) affect job satisfaction. We apply ASPIRE framework to investigate ITOC. Also we suppose the effect of age too. Based on above inference, we conducted a set of empirical study with our data from Japanese IT professionals. The result supports hypotheses for ITOC and age, but ITOS affects differently. We discuss these results.
