Abstract:

An earlier report examined the personal background differences in organizational values and preferences of Navymen. The present report looks at similar effects for Navy officers alone. As in the broader report, young Navy officers report perceptions of a bureaucratic structure which allows too little personal autonomy. Despite the basically positive, constructive relationships which exist with supervisors and peers, the organizational climate is therefore seen in relatively negative terms. Young officers seem by and large relatively dissatisfied.
