We explore and explain the determinants of job satisfaction for academic Economists in the UK using rich new data measuring individual (demographic, productivity and job related) and workplace characteristics. We find the majority, male and female, are satisfied with their job and that workplace characteristics are the most important determinants of that satisfaction, especially working in a co-operative and gender inclusive environment.
