The Work-Related Attitudes of Australian Accounting Academics
Pop-Vasileva, Aleksandra; Baird, Kevin; Blair, Bill
Accounting Education, v23 n1 p1-21 2014
This study examines the work-related attitudes of Australian accounting academics. A survey of 350 academics provides an insight into the specific organisational and institutional factors associated with the dissatisfaction, stress levels, and propensity to remain of academics. Of particular concern is the lower level of satisfaction and propensity to remain of Associate Lecturers and Senior Lecturers and the significant research pressures placed on these emerging academics. The findings have important implications for university management in respect to the retention and recruitment of quality academics and will facilitate further discussion and debate concerning the issues facing accounting academics and their role in contributing to the profession.
