Although workaholism in organizations has received considerable attention in the popular press, our understanding of it based on research evidence is quite limited. This study, using measures developed by Spence and Robbins (1992), examined the relationship of workaholism type to indicators of job and career success. Data were collected from 530 male and female managers and professionals using anonymous questionnaires. The results indicated a negative relationship between workaholism and job and career satisfaction and career prospects and a positive relationship with quit intentions.
