© 2017 Elsevier B.V.Managing engineering professionals is critical if organizations wish to retain talented employees. Enhancing engineers¿ career satisfaction through work, personal and cultural conditions is a fundamental tool to address their aspirations and increasing performance. This empirical research examines all this with data from 846 Spanish engineers. With a hierarchical regression analysis, the results show that organizational commitment, level of income, suitability for the job, and work-life balance supporting culture improve engineers¿ career satisfaction. Organizational commitment is the most important issue. Level of income and suitability for the job are the second most important factors for determining men's and women's career satisfaction.
