Abstract

This study aimed to study the compensation satisfaction among engineers working in consulting firms at Kota Kinabalu, Sabah. Questionnaire survey was used for data collection purpose. Besides compensation satisfaction, the intention to leave and the relationship between compensation satisfaction and intention to leave was also studied. The compensation satisfaction was further divided to four different dimensions which are pay level satisfaction, pay raise satisfaction, benefit satisfaction and pay structure and administration satisfaction. Each of it was tested individually as well for their significances. Finding of this study suggested that the respondents overall are slightly not satisfied in their compensation and relatively neutral in their intention to leave. The significance of relationship between compensation satisfaction and intention to leave was also established to a certain degree. The negatively associated relationship was also established but not to every dimension. The most influential dimension of was found to be pay raise satisfaction. This study suggests that attention shall be placed on compensation satisfaction for employee retention purpose while other factors that could lead to intention to leave should also be studied.
