This study reveals how older and younger male and female college teachers perceive their work environment. A sample of 110 teachers, (60 males and 50 females) was administered Work Environment Scale (Moos, 1981) as a measure of respondent's perception of their work milieu. Results show that in general, age and gender do not lead to statistically significant differences in college teachers' perception of their work environment. However, male teachers enjoy more autonomy and opportunities for innovation than females teachers. Both the male and female teachers see the college work environment as more controlling and task oriented. As compared to U.S.A general work group (Moos, 1981) the Lahore based college teachers have scored low on most of the work dimensions meaning thereby that the work milieu of these colleges needs to be modified adequately.
