This article addresses a subject that had long been a reflection field for sociologists and psychologists, the satisfaction in the employment. This notion, which is of increasing interest to economists, has been tackled here by seeking the explanatory factors that would influence it. More specifically, it was to analyze the determinants of satisfaction in formal employment in Cote d'Ivoire; employment assumed to contain features that will do motivating, at least that will satisfactory. In order to carry out this research, we have had recourse to data on the 2016 National Survey on the Employment Situation and the Informal Sector from the Youth Employment Agency in collaboration with the National Institute of Statistics. By using an ordinal logistic regression on the modalities of the satisfaction in employment performed by the maximum likelihood method, we come to the conclusion that a monthly salary of at least three times the guaranteed minimum wage (which is FCFA 60 000 currently in Cote d'Ivoire), as well as premium payments and benefits influence positively satisfaction in employment. Conversely, heavy weekly hours are likely to degrade the level of satisfaction in employment that one could withdraw. The introduction of incentive wage measures, the respect of working hours could help to reduce the rate of absenteism and strikes in the administrations related to dissatisfaction in employment and which are increasingly noted in Cote d'Ivoire.
