Drawing on Turner's (American Sociological Review, 25:855-867, 1960) framework of contest and sponsored mobility norms, this study investigated factors that affect employees' career satisfaction in the Chinese setting. Using two organization-referenced variables, procedural justice and perceived organizational support (POS), to represent contest mobility norm and sponsored mobility norm, we evaluated their effects on career satisfaction. We also explored the moderating role of risk aversion on these relationships. Several hypotheses were developed and tested on a sample of 239 employees working in a foreign-invested enterprise in China. The results of regression analysis showed that procedural justice and POS contributed to career satisfaction in a cumulative manner. Further, among the risk-averse employees, the relationship between POS and career satisfaction was stronger.
