In this research, female SLT is more common than male SLTs. The female, the therapist was 63.9% and the male therapist was 36.1%. In Bangladesh female, SLT is more than a male therapist. The association between gender and overall satisfaction is difficult to understand due to the heterogeneity of the satisfaction assessments and included confounders, although there may be gender differences in facets of satisfaction. A UK survey exposed that the number of female students is rising day by day in the therapist student (Craik, Gissane, Douthwaite, & Philp, 2001). One possible cause of the increasing number of the female therapist in Bangladesh at the present time is the right to equal opportunity for rights for both in gender. Another reason those female students like health-related professions. Parents can also influence females to choose health related careers. There are conflicting reports on different kinds of literatures about the impact of gender on career satisfaction. The overall career goals contribute to a stronger degree to overall career satisfaction for men and women.In this research most of SLT work in Rehabilitation sector (38.9%). In Bangladesh SLT also increased in different settings. Bangladeshi SLT also works in a school setting (16.7%), NGO (16.7%), hospital (19.4%) and another setting (5.6%). This study shows that rehabilitation is the most common area to work in. SLT also works as a teacher (2.8%). Speech and Language Therapist have increased in different settings. According to Megan (2009), employment for speech language pathologists across all settings is expected to grow 11 percent from 2006-2016.From 2005 regular graduates of SLT have qualified from the BHPI. In this study, it was found that SLT who are working in clinical settings have experienced less than ten years. It is found in American surveys that older practitioners’ higher overall satisfaction scores overall than younger dentists (Gilmour, Stewardson, Shugars & Burke 2005). A positive correlation between work experience and career satisfaction has been identified.In Bangladesh, SLT did not change the institution easily. Boswell, Boudreau and Tichy (2005) study contribute to research by modelling within-individual of job change patterns. The authors hypothesize that low satisfaction would come first an unpaid job change, with enhancing job satisfaction without waiting following a job change.In general most of the SLT of Bangladesh is satisfied with their career. Among all participants, most of the SLTs are satisfied with career. A very few SLTs are strongly satisfied and the rest of them are totally dissatisfied with their career. 77.8% SLTs Bangladesh is satisfied with their job, 19.4% strongly satisfied and rest 2.8% are dissatisfied. Gilmour, Stewardson, Shugars and Burke (2005) conducted research on job satisfaction of approved occupational therapists in Minnesota and this study showed that most participants seemed to be normally satisfied with their job. It has been reported that there is a reduce in career satisfaction in America as well as healthcare settings that are thought to be related to the stressful and high pressure work experience, limited credit and progression and lack of variety in the type of work completed (Jacobs & Solomon, 1977).Most of the therapist in Bangladesh meets their career aim satisfaction. 80.6% of SLT are satisfied with their profession. 11.1% are strongly satisfied and only 8.6% were marked dissatisfied.In this study, there is a huge amount of satisfied SLTs about their promotion in Bangladesh. This study is a good sign of a profession in this country. If this status goes on the existence of the profession will be helpful. Promotions are important aspects of a worker’s career and life, affecting other facts of the work experience. Promotions are important aspects of a worker’s career and life, affecting other facts of working experience. They comprise important aspects of workers labour mobility, most often carrying considerable salary increase.In Bangladesh’s working experience in SLT is high. Occupational therapists working experience an average level (Brown, 1995).Most of the SLTs are satisfied with their income through the profession. Among all the participants most of the SLT of Bangladesh satisfied with their income. The rest of them strongly satisfied with their income. The relationship between actual income and satisfaction may be confused by other variables but satisfaction with income does come out to correlate with overall satisfaction. Income is an extrinsic motivator for a person to involve in activities (Frank, 1999). Robinson (2004) said that female physician career satisfaction, it is found that lower income caused less career satisfaction, in result be used up from profession. Income has been shown to be significantly and positively related to physician satisfaction and it is well established in different studies (Leigh &Kravitz, 2003). Cydulka and Korte (2008) said that higher income levels strongly predicted satisfaction. In this study, it was found that a large population of SLTs are satisfied with their profession as a clinical SLT. Among all participants, reported that highly satisfaction working as a clinical SLT. Researcher Wittman, Swinehart, Cahill and Michel, (1989) cited in his study that most of the student participants reported working as a clinician, influenced by placement in those settings or influenced by the therapist they have met. The choice of clinical SLT as a profession might give satisfaction as a professional achievement. Most of the SLT are strongly satisfied with patient treatment (62.9%). Participants felt satisfied with the patient’s improvement so according to the participant’s opinion, most of the SLTs feel satisfaction is the patient’s improvement when providing SLT service. In the case of rehabilitation professionals, patients’ improvement is positively enhanced by the therapist’s motivation to do work. Cydulka and Korte (2008) conducted a study on the career satisfaction of physician career satisfaction in emergency medicine. They suggest that who is engaged in patient care are most satisfied than others. So it can be said that it is a positive impression that the Bangladeshi SLT service meets the expectation of the therapist and it becomes a beneficial service for the client who needs rehabilitation. In this study the prevalence of patient improvement satisfaction was highest at 52.8%. Higher satisfaction is associated with patient better outcomes and levels of satisfaction are especially high in rehabilitation (Keith, 1998).In this study, SLT showed that the working environment is positive for them. Sveinsdóttir, Biering and Ramel (2006) suggest that the tough conditions of Icelandic nurses are felt more cruelly among the working environment. Robinson (2004) found in his study that female physicians who perceived more control over their work environment were most satisfied. Less work control in the work environment is linked to the most reported dissatisfaction. In 1990 Frank et al found in their study that 32 % of physicians who reported a low degree of control of their work environment and were almost twice as likely as other physicians to definitely desire a specialty change so work environment determines the worker’s motivation to do this work for a long time. A survey of a large National (US) sample of women physicians that enabled them to access variables affecting career satisfaction desire to become a physician again and a desire to once again choose one’s specialty. Low control of the work environment is a strong predictor of all the measures of professional dissatisfaction. It is found that untimely more control of the daily work schedule will allow physicians to spend more time with patients and improve the quality of care. It is recommended in this study that promoting control of the work environment will enhance career satisfaction. Shaviki and Cooley (1987) showed that most of the mental professionals were satisfied with their working environment.Most SLTs are satisfied with their colleagues. Among all participants most of the SLT (55.6%) are satisfied with their colleagues. Most SLTs are satisfied with their co-workers. Peer co-worker relationships between employees at the same hierarchical level who have no formal authority over one another. However, co-worker relationships are often assumed to refer specifically to relationships among peer employees. In this study, participants are satisfied with their colleagues. This is a very positive sign for SLT in Bangladesh. Ogiwara and Araki (2006) reported difficulties in controlling interpersonal relationships derived through daily encounters in diverse human relationships in professional practice. In some other studies, it had given emphasis that the personal development of professional can occur through a colleague. Career encouragement from colleagues’ has an influence on career satisfaction because the advancement of a career is one of the key factors career satisfactions. Meade et al (2005), found that good colleagues working relationships is one of the main themes for work satisfaction. A lack of interaction with colleagues leads to isolation and dependence colleague is also a cause of burnout from the job which is the chronic effect of career satisfaction (Cydulka & Korte 2008).Most of the SLT are satisfied with their working independence (52.8%). According to McHugh, Lee, Cimiotti, Sloane and Aiken (2011) doctors and nurses were satisfied with their working independence. A researcher found that most therapists are satisfied due to their comments is given priority during decision making. Professional autonomy is one of the key components of career satisfaction that need to consider. While hospitalists work in a collaborative environment they also report high levels of clinical autonomy which may enhance professional satisfaction Work settings Speech and Language therapists are mainly therapist based, here Speech and Language Therapist has the autonomy to decision making about the patient and the pattern of work. It is found different studies that therapist autonomy is a great factor for therapist satisfaction. A 2004 study indicates that younger surgeon is more likely to experience burnout because they identify work as overwhelming and feel less autonomy in their career (Bettes et al 2004). Almost of SLT in Bangladesh satisfied their achievement in their career (61.1%). Achievement is the motivation for all professionals. Davis & Bordieri (1988) investigate that occupational therapists rated their career satisfaction as relatively high and reporting achievement. A more recent study completed in Australia by Mooree et al. (2006) found that the main source of career satisfaction for the occupational therapists who participated in the study was the sense of achievement gained when they learned they are clinical the intervention was beneficial for the patient. In Bangladesh, the prevalence of patient concept satisfaction was 63.9%. Satisfied patients are more possible to help from health care. Casserley et al. (2008) show that Overall satisfaction with physiotherapy patient experience” was scored on a five-point scale “”excellent to poor””
