A total six hundred respondents were collected out of which 150 were not appropriate for the study (unfulfilled data). The psychometrically standardized questionnaires were used i.e. Occupational Stress Indicator – OSI, General Health Questionnaire 12, NEO Five-Factor Inventory and Minnesota Job Satisfaction Questionnaire. The result revealed that there was no significant difference between males and females on job satisfaction and general health. Further, there was a significant difference between the private and government sectors of IT professional’s on job satisfaction and occupational stress. The coefficient of correlation indicated a significantly positive correlation between occupational stress and personality. Regression analysis revealed that the level of job satisfaction depends upon negative affectivity. These findings indicated that negative affectivity has emerged as one of the important contributing factors to general health and job satisfaction on IT professionals. Preventive measures are suggested based on findings on how to reduce occupational stress of IT employees which would contribute to maintain a satisfied and contented staff.
