Job satisfaction survey scale of 9 sub facets i.e. pay, promotion chances, supervision, fringe benefits, contingent rewards, operating procedures, co-workers, nature of work and communication was used to collect data. The questionnaire was administered to the participants individually to measure the extent to which they were satisfied with their jobs. t-test was applied to examine the significant difference in the level of job satisfaction in both types of banks. The overall results show no significant differences in level of satisfaction on any facet of job satisfaction except on nature of work assigned. The Government bank employees showed more satisfaction on nature of work assigned then Privatized bank employees. Correlation analysis was carried out to find relationship among different facets of job satisfaction. The results indicated strong positive correlation among facets of job satisfaction.

The designation categories were managers, officer grade I (OG I) officers grade II (OG II) officer grade III (OG III).
