Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Behavioral researchers have focused considerable attention on the relationship between the professional employee and the organizational aspects of the work environment. Prior research, however, has failed to consider the extent to which cultural differences moderate this relationship. This study examined the antecedents and outcomes of the organizational-professional conflict using data collected from a sample of 404 Israeli and 469 U.S. professional accountants. In general, the results from the two samples were quite consistent; and while they failed to indicate a moderating influence attributable to cultural dimensions, they provided evidence that questioned traditional thinking.
