Abstract

To improve understanding of the manner in which multinational corporations control foreign subsidiaries, we examine the relationships between three types of controls (one input and two process/behavioral) used by the expatriate managers and host country national managers?overall job satisfaction. We further investigate the moderating effects of expatriate managers?parent company commitment and job discretion on the aforementioned relationships. Given the multilevel theorizing advanced in this study, we investigate these issues using survey data from 139 expatriate general managers and 324 host country national managers working at 139 hotels. The findings from this study support most of the proposed relationships.
