The role of job satisfaction in reducing the intentions to leave the job by employees has been well documented in manufacturing and service industries. Numerous researchers investigated intentions to leave (ITL) in different organizational settings and in varied industries; however, pharmaceutical industry of Pakistan seems to be totally unrepresented in literature. Thus, the primary aim of this paper is to ascertain the impact of various intrinsic and extrinsic job factors on pharmaceutical salespersons’ ITL as the retention of salesforce is the most significant factor in the growth of pharmaceutical companies. By using multiple regression analysis in this study, it has been found that quality of supervision, compensation satisfaction, degree of job security, promotion opportunities, rewards, operating procedures, work – itself, growth, and relationship with coworkers are significant predictors of ITL in pharmaceutical industry.
