This study investigated the demographic factors on job satisfaction among academic staff in tertiary institutions in two universities in Ogun State, testing five hypotheses.  A total of one hundred and twenty respondents were randomly selected.  Male and female academic staff in three of the departments were used for this study.  A set of structured questionnaire were administered after the reliability and the validity of it had been tested.  The five null hypotheses were analyzed using chi-square statistics at 0.05 point significant level.  The findings of the study revealed that most of the academic staff in the universities were dissatisfied with their jobs because of inadequate salaries, allowances, high volume of work and inadequate facilities.  It is therefore recommended that greater efforts should be made to provide facilities and infrastructures that will encourage academic staff.  Moreover, a more responsive incentive package will relatively motivate and satisfy academic staff on the job.  The implications of this will allow effective administration of the system and therefore, avoidance of industrial strike of Unions in our tertiary institutions.
