Data have been collected randomly from 40employees of Gaibandha District in Bangladesh through a structured questionnairein January to February, 2010. Among the respondents 50% is government employee while 50% is non-government employee. Brayfield and Rothe (1951) method was used to determine the job satisfaction of the employees. Likert scale was used for measuring the attitude of the employees on their job.

The study suggests that an effective policy on recruitment, job security, service rules, promotional opportunities, regular payments, retirements’ benefits should be made by the government to improve the job satisfaction and attitude of employees in both government and non-government employees.
