In Malaysia, criteria and processes for promotion or even confirmation vary greatly between public universities. However, the use of one remuneration scheme with a common grade and salary system across all public universities may be considered unfair by some academics because it is not commensurate with their effort. The objectives of this paper are: (1) To identify the gap between what academics expect to be emphasized and what is actually assessed in promotion; (2) To determine if there is a difference in job mobility according to: (a) Expectation of emphasis to be assessed in each of the four aspects of academic positions; (b) Actual assessment emphasis in each of the four aspects of academic positions; (3) To determine if there is difference in job satisfaction according to: (a) Expectation of emphasis to be assessed in each of the four aspects of academic positions (b) Actual assessment emphasis in each of the four aspects of academic positions; and (4) To identify the important considerations for staying or leaving an institution.
