Abstract : The attitudes toward work life held by Navy civilian engineers were contrasted with those held by paraprofessional engineering technicians and wage- grade mechanics. In general, the engineers reported less intrinsic job satisfaction, more impediments to their productivity, and less material satisfaction from their jobs than did the technicians and mechanics. The best predictors of turnover intentions among engineers were the perceived quality of the supervision they received and their overall level of material satisfaction. These findings are congruent with previous research on engineers.
