Job stress is a negative pressure typically created out of poor workplace conditions severely affecting individual performance and organizational productivity. This study endeavored to identify the symptoms and sources of job stress among Bangladesh's information technology professionals and a quantitative research method was used here in this regard. A multiple response questionnaire was distributed among 110 information technology professionals for data collection, where one-sample t-test was used for data analysis. Managerial implications for minimizing job stress were prepared based on a series of interviews with academicians and software professionals. The study discovered that information technology professionals have a moderate level of stress symptoms like Headaches, Tension, and Aggressiveness, and time-related stressors as the primary source of job stress.
