Job Satisfaction Among Minority Advertising Professionals: An Update
Unformatted Document Text:  Minority Ad Professionals at advertising agencies (64.9%). Average annual salary (including bonuses) was $42,037 with a median of $40,000 ranging from $30,000 to $75,000. For those employed in non- advertising fields the average salary was $43,452 with a median of $40,000 and a range from $17,000 to $87,000. Research Question 1: What is the level of job satisfaction among minority professionals? Does job satisfaction for those employed in advertising-related jobs differ from those employed in non-advertising related positions? Table 1 contains summaries of responses to the 5 items on the job satisfaction scale. Respondents’ overall Job Satisfaction Score, which represents an average of the 5 items, was 5.09 on a seven-point scale. For those working in advertising (n=81), overall job satisfaction was 4.99 versus 5.73 those in non-advertising related jobs (n=11). An independent samples t-test showed that the difference in job satisfaction between the two groups was significant (t=-1.989; p=.050). Advertising professionals were most satisfied with their co-workers and least satisfied with their pay. Those working in non- advertising position were most satisfied with their supervision – significantly more satisfied than their advertising counterparts (AdMean = 5.25; NonAdMean=6.36; t = -2.260; p =.026). However because of the small number of non-advertising professionals in the sample, the differences between the groups should be interpreted with caution. Research Question 2: Has job satisfaction among minorities who are currently working in advertising changed when compared with a similar group of minority advertising professionals who were surveyed in 2006? For minority professionals who were surveyed in 2006 (Fullerton et al, 2007), job 12

Minority Ad Professionals
at advertising agencies (64.9%).  Average annual salary (including bonuses) was $42,037 
with a median of $40,000 ranging from $30,000 to $75,000.  For those employed in non-
advertising fields the average salary was $43,452 with a median of $40,000 and a range

Research Question 1:  What is the level of job satisfaction among minority
 professionals?  Does job satisfaction for those employed in advertising-related jobs differ 
from those employed in non-advertising related positions?
Table 1 contains summaries of responses to the 5 items on the job satisfaction 
scale.  Respondents’ overall Job Satisfaction Score, which represents an average of the 5 
items, was 5.09 on a seven-point scale.  For those working in advertising (n=81), overall 
job satisfaction was 4.99 versus 5.73 those in non-advertising related jobs (n=11). An

groups was significant (t=-1.989; p=.050).  Advertising professionals were most satisfied 
with their co-workers and least satisfied with their pay.  Those working in non-
advertising position were most satisfied with their supervision – significantly more 
satisfied than their advertising counterparts (AdMean = 5.25; NonAdMean=6.36; t = 
-2.260; p =.026). However because of the small number of non-advertising professionals
