This empirical investigation attempts to do a comparative analysis of the role stress experienced by employees of the acquiring company and acquired company in India. The results indicate that both the groups were experiencing role stress but the dimensions of role stress differed. One was experiencing role overload and the other was experiencing self role distance. Further the investigation tried to study the concomitant impact on organization commitment and job satisfaction. The results varied in both the groups. Correlation between organization commitment and role stress was found in the acquired group and job satisfaction and role stress was found in the acquiring group. The complex dynamics between these variables within the groups presents and explains an interesting matrix of interrelated variables and their varied impact. The sample size was 86.
