Abstract. The purpose of this paper is to analyze the Job Satisfaction of teachers in Higher Education Institutions from the Public and Private Sector in Lahore, Punjab, Pakistan. A comparative study has been carried out, based on the survey method using a quantitative approach. Data were collected from a questionnaire completed by 345 Teachers (203 from public and 142 from private sector), from 10 universities (5 public and 5 private), using convenience sampling. The results of the Chi-Squared independence hypothesis test reveal statistically significant differences in degree of agreement for some of the statements between the Public and Private University Teachers on the Job Satisfaction scale (salary, promotion, benefits, coworkers, type of work done, and communication within the organization). Suggestions have been proposed for educational managers to consider professional and personal perceptions related to Job Satisfaction based on Teacher’s needs and perceptions.
