The relationship of satisfaction with the “parts” or facets of the job to the “whole” of global job satisfaction and to intention to quit differed between samples of employees from financial firms in the United States of America (USA) and the Philippines. In contrast with research using commonly accepted sets of facet satisfactions developed in the USA, our results showed that additional extrinsic facets improved the explanation of outcomes in the Philippines, but not in the USA. In addition, extending past research, satisfaction with intrinsic job facets explained outcomes better in the USA than in the Philippines, and job dissatisfaction had a stronger relationship with turnover intentions in the USA than in the Philippines. Implications for the measurement of facet satisfactions, and for international management research and practice in the Philippines are discussed.
