What employees understand as their work and what they actually do could be different . There is a role conflict here induced because of conflicting job demands, multiple supervisors/managers, etc and this results in issues for the employees.
Role ambiguity might exist. There could be a lack of clarity about responsibilities, expectations, etc and while some employees handle such ambiguities well, others might not.
The level of responsibility that an employee handles could differ in causing stress, especially when an employee is mismatched in skills to the workplace activity .
Job security is seen to be a constant issue. Job security is further exacerbated by some conditions, such as declining economic security etc. There are fear of redundancy either from economy, or in some situations the lack of work pressure which would make employee believe they are expendable .
Career development opportunities might be lacking for the employee in his industry and this could be an issue.
Overall satisfaction in the form of work that employee does would change based on whether employee covets the job or whether they are doing the job just for the sake of monetary compensation.
