Firm performance increases as workers' job satisfaction increases. Therefore, firms have a great interest in identifying the determinants of job satisfaction. To this end, this study conducts a survey to investigate the impact of IT professionals' demographic characteristics, work characteristics and work stress on job satisfaction. Five components of job satisfaction were revealed by principal component analysis, and variables affecting each job satisfaction component were determined by regression analysis.
