The study was designed with a view to investigating the overall job satisfaction, propensity to quit the job, job stress, and dissatisfaction among the women commercial bank employees in Bangladesh. 100 women commercial bank employees were selected from Dhaka and Khulna divisions on a random basis. A structured questionnaire was used to collect the data through field study. The results revealed that the respondents perceived their job as highly stressful. In spite of highly stressful banking job, respondents had less intention to quit the job. Job satisfaction had significant negative impacts on propensity to quit the job and stress. It was also observed that significantly higher number of the respondents were satisfied with their present job as compared to non satisfied ones. Open communication, promotional prospects, equity, and job status were more important factors for over all job satisfaction. Salary was found one of the least important factors for job satisfaction. Job factors were not unidirectional in their effects rather they could be sources of both satisfaction and dissatisfaction. Lack of promotional prospects, poor salary, equity and long banking hours were the major causes of job dissatisfaction as perceived by the respondents.
