This paper describes the effects that organisational reforms at Spanish public universities have had on the job satisfaction of the academics they employ, using an adaptation of the "Job Descriptive Index". The work is based on the lecturers' opinions as expressed through a questionnaire. The research concludes that the most visible and ubiquitous organisational trends threaten the virtues of the collegial model of university organisation, and generate dissatisfaction among faculty.
